A friend text to me, the nicest and wisest words, yesterday:
“Know your heart, it tells the truth. Everything else can just blow away with the wind.”
It felt very fitting for these chaotic times. My heart knows it will be okay, I just wish my head would pipe down and know it will be too. I don’t know how, and
almost all a lot of the time I REALLY cannot see it will, but whenever I touch in with my heart, it seems to be sitting there softly saying how it will be okay.
My stomach feels tight, my head spins, with the worry of HOW. “How will it be? Will it really be? What will okay even mean? Will I end up settling for a shoddy okay?”
But these are just angsts. These are future tripping worries that riddle my days. And despite how many are there and how often they show my face, there really is that feeling in my heart that it will be okay. I just long to be able to trust that. But maybe for now, all I need is to know that it’s there and head there for reassurance.
Does your heart give you that feeling of hope, and your head the feeling of chaos and worry?
