This week I had the blessing of time with a friend I see only once a year. It’s one of the most important few hours of my year, because my soul opens, is held, and is fed.
There is very little in life that feels better than being known. To me, it means having a connection with someone who:
Invites me to put my deepest self into words,
Holds my vulnerability with love,
Is able to feel my emotions as their own,
Gives me insights into myself,
Inspires me to continue to unfold, when I feel like shrinking,
Helps me see my blind spots, ever so gently,
Fuels me with a fresh belief in myself,
Being known is being loved.
Who brings you energy? Who helps you breathe more deeply? Who opens your heart?
Take a moment to feel this blessing.
And then let them know the depth of their gift.
