Sometimes the most revolutionary thing you can do is stop trying

Stop trying so damn hard to be clever, to be loveable, to be worthy of friendship, to be cherished

Stop working to fill the potholes and empty spaces in the heart with community  

Stop striving to get  needs met, stop setting up the conditions for it to all come together

Sometimes the most revolutionary action is simply to sit

And trust

That we will be loved anyway

That just getting up in the morning and going about our daily business is all that is needed for kindness to flow in

That our needs will be met in the most surprising of ways and those that don’t get met will keep

That love doesn’t need to be earned and that it simply is and will be without any effort.

Sometimes that most revolutionary thought is that you don’t need to kick to be carried, to float with ease in the arms of the world.

Sometime the most revolutionary cry is


Can I open my arms to embrace this revolution?  Let it seep into my bones?  Can you?

    Meg, oh Meg.

    You ARE enough. And so am I. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for this reminder. I needed it more than just about anything else right now.

    I stopped trying last week and my entire world has shifted. This reminder soothes me, comforts me, and brings much peace.
