– I took the picture earlier today, it’s from Opal Beach on Santa Rosa Island, Florida, where I’m currently loving life. Tomorrow it’s back to the wonderful city, New Orleans :)

Multitudes

Posted on

at any given moment

a multitude of thoughts are fluttering through the mind

a bright intention singing from the heart

translated into a thousand directions

always almost becoming

nearly in existence

butterflies ready to shift reality

into multitudes

Unbreakable

The Unbroken

There is a brokenness heart
out of which comes the unbroken,
a shatteredness
out of which blooms the unshatterable.

There is a sorrow
beyond all grief which leads to joy
and a fragility
out of whose depths emerges strength.

There is a hollow space
too vast for words
through which we pass with each loss,
out of whose darkness
we are sanctioned into being.

There is a cry deeper than all sound
whose serrated edges cut the heart
as we break open to the place inside
which is unbreakable and whole,
while learning to sing.

~Rashani

I read this poem several years ago and I remember the truth of it echoing through me, bringing me much-needed peace. It reminded me that even in pain there’s beauty, and that what matters the most will never be broken. It is one of my favorite poems, although I haven’t thought of it for a long time – but then today when I read the most recent post on The Better Man Project it immediately popped into my mind again. Funny how that works..

May we all remember, or have someone to remind us, that our dark moments serve a valuable purpose and that we hold in our hearts unbreakable love and light ♥

let’s keep it light

but sincere

loving yet detached

let’s laugh and explore

and always be honest

but kind

let’s be uncompromisingly playful

even when serious

courageously vulnerable

especially when scared

passionately simple

innocently twisted

let’s be love

expressed

in life

effortlessly

let’s keep it moving
