One of the greatest things to learn as a human being,
is the ability to be with yourself.
And to that I mean really just be with yourself.
And your internal state.
No task or goal or game.
Maybe walking alone, maybe sitting, maybe lying down in bed,
But just you, walking with, sitting with, lying with, whatever comes up for you.
It isn’t the easiest thing in the world to do;
And it is, very much, something that needs to be learned.
(And the earlier you are fortunate to have the opportunity to learn it,
Because if not, woah.
It’s like learning to walk when your thirty.
Every fall is going to hurt so much more,
And the discouragement will be so much worse.)
But it is vital.
Because in that space,
to know ourselves
and therefore to know others
to open up
to feel all our feels
to be at one with ourselves
and at one with the world around us
and to live in all of these worlds
From that space,
we learn to hear our authentic selves
and we learn to let go our inauthentic narration.
It is from here,
that we construct ourselves
design who we will be in the world
give voice to our genuine character
and step out into the world
with peace of mind
and a full heart.
can be with yourself,
you can be with whatever life brings
when it life’s all over you.
You can be,
no matter the circumstances.
And in every moment,
you get to be,
you want to be.
