Today was a day where it felt like it was more than I could hold coming off an already intense week. This past week, I wanted to scream, cry and rant. Then little whispers fell into my lap; unexpected conversations, surprise prayer offerings, hugs from the not so little's and I remembered I was already holding it.
So, I allowed for the blessings of tears and the story they were releasing. I took deep breaths before I reacted. I got really honest with myself and others I needed to. Then...I accessed my own words I often write, took a step back, and I did the hard things. I kept going...
Today, as a family I felt we all had these feelings with the end of the school year approaching this Friday, a total destruction of my laptop unintentionally by our dog, new schedules arising for our trio and some uncertainty. So, I took us to the labyrinth. Our go to release, prayer, meditation and family coming together.
My word I left at the labyrinth's center after walking was fear and I decided to take with me for the continued week ahead, trust.

Are you a feeler?
Do people often tell you that you feel too much?
Undoubtedly our feelings tell our stories, our feelings walk us through traumas and our feelings are absolutely OK to have. Feelings help us tell our stories to heal.
Feelings come from the wounds that perhaps have hurt us before.
Feelings begin the journey to wellness and growth.
Dare to keep feeling!
