Rising...

I know what it feels like to feel afraid, lost, hungry, alone,
and to feel perhaps the challenges are too great.
I know what it feels like to feel disillusioned with life where there
is so much suffering, and wonder how do I matter?

I know what it feels like to be saved, by the grace and love
of a good friend.
I know what it feels like to save myself, to make choices where
I feel good.
I know what it feels like to revel in the majesty of nature.
I know what it feels like to feel connected to the whole,
to the sacredness of earth and spirit.
I know what it feels like to dance, to move, to create,
and to come home to myself, over and over again.
I know what it feels like to take responsibility for my challenges,
and to trust and grow stronger and wiser.
I know what it feels like to shine, and love myself, and be
independent of  the good opnion of others.
I know what it feels like to feel grateful for my life and my gifts,
and be inspired to serve.
I know what it feels like to find grace and love within.
I know what it feels like to laugh, and be inspired with a friend.
I know what it feels like to be deeply loved and cared for.
I know what it feels like to love and help another and feel blessed.
I know what it feels like to trust my own voice, wisdom and truth.
I know what it feels like to move with integrity and self-respect.
I know what it feels like to rise and meet the grace and possibility
of each day.
I know what it feels like to feel the support and love of angels
I know what it feels like to know my value and be inspired to live
a beautiful life.
I know what it feels like to feel good.

Know that no matter how alone, lost, or afraid you may feel...
you will find grace and healing through rising... one small step at a time.
Peace, friends.
