Take a day every once in a while and completely slow down. Be sentimental. Stare into a candle and watch the way it flickers. Count the colors in the sunset. Take an old book you’ve read time after time, and pick apart every word. Take it in in a new way each time. Think about the things you’re stressing over, and ask yourself, “is this really what I wanted? Is this going to help me in the long run?”
Remember that this entire world you are walking on is a miracle in itself. We are all miracles. Grace fills the scars in our heart and on our skin. Hope fills thoughts of uncertainty. Music consoles us. Love ties it all together.
