"Things falling apart is a kind of testing and also a kind of healing. We think that the point is to pass the test or to overcome the problem, but the truth is that things don't really get solved. They come together and they fall apart. Then they come together again and fall apart again. It's just like that. The healing comes from letting there be room for all of this to happen: room for grief, for relief, for misery, for joy." Pema Chödrön
this falling apart the quote speaks of is what my life looks like right now.
and so many lives that i am entwined with.
i am practicing mindful and deliberate gratitude, actively looking for the good, the lovely, and the miracles that are all mixed in with the pain and the grief.
today has been a mixture
i welcome tomorrow and all it holds for us.
