Ready for Connection

Standard

Start with yourself 
This is the only place
You are the only one

Look in

You don’t need a mirror

glued to a wall

to see yourself.

Look at the mirror inside.

Begin with a sense

of unconditional kindness

and genuine compassion

for the tender-hearted one in you

who sometimes hurts,

who sometimes feels great joy.

Begin with yourself.

Feel how you would never

abandon yourself,

never give up.

Feel this in the depths of your being.

Yes, now you’re ready 

to show up for someone else,

to be kind, to be compassionate.

Now you are ready 

for authentic connection.

  1. Amazing how it always starts with dropping /gazing inward, doesn’t it- rather than looking everywhere and around for connection. i’ve found of late that to be connected to the self first is the only way to authentically connect with the rest of the world.

    • Yes, and I wish that I could remember this in the midst of daily life challenges. This is where my work lies–remembering to drop into my center, breathe deeply, and choose how to respond rather than reacting the same old way. Let us support each other in connecting to ourselves first! ❤ ❤ 🙂
