You are sensitive, he says.
But I want to be strong.
I know, he says.
It's just that it's like all the skin was ripped off my body and even the air burned.
Just show up. Wake up and show up. It's all you ever had, a right to show up.
Do we have the right to show up? What right do we have to enjoy?
You have the right to choose and the responsibility of knowing people are watching.
After you understand this in the show up of when and where you are.
There and then is where you will find what has been waiting for you all along.
Today I am grateful for healing even if we're not there yet.
Today we showed up.
