It’s about seeking out your own unique place in the world. Finding a comfortable niche where you fit in perfectly and fall naturally into the Earth’s rhythm. For some, their spot is found in the moments that make up their day: in the embrace of a loved one or, perhaps, sitting with the family for Sunday breakfast and smelling the sweet aroma of bacon, pancakes and syrup. For others, it is harder and the distance you travel is trying and difficult: like making your way through a forest maze, the branches cut and trip you and the darkness can be so dark at night.
This beauty pushed through to the end of her maze and only after stepping over the last of the knotted roots, did her sleeping spirit awaken and become alive in this serene waterbed. Now, she freely enjoys the cool water and absorbs the warmth of the sun, she can laugh as loudly as she wants or cry until it rains, this is her refuge.
No matter which journey you are set to have, trust in your spirit. It will tell you when you have happened on a bit or piece, destined to help carve out your own little crevice.
You’ve just got to start the journey.
