Coming home again

Today is a milestone, and I cross a threshold.

I had thought it was a threshold going out.

Yet I now realise it is a threshold coming in.

I no longer need the coat I’ve been wearing for years.

It’s time to take it off…

TO COME HOME TO YOURSELF

May all that is unforgiven in you,  
Be released.

May your fears yield
Their deepest tranquilities.

May all that is unlived in you,  
Blossom into a future,
Graced with love.

+ John O’Donohue, from Benedictus: A Book of Blessings, Bantam Press 2007

There is space here for all of us.

Pause. See differently. Re-story 🌿
