I love your heart.You see the world from such a beautiful and unique perspective.Through color, musical notes, body movement, culinary delights and other talents you dance through life in a special dance that only you know the moves for.It is as if all five of your sensory inputs are always tingling, reaching out for more and always coming up just short, fueling the insistent pursuit of the extraordinary.Your heart is massive in its ability to express and take in feelings.This gives you the ability to live compassionately and when you connect, you connect deeply.Your freedom to adaptand take life as it comes is a contagious liberty that many wish for themselves.
I turn to you when I find myself blindly plodding through life’s monotony.You shake me out of my stagnant comfort zone.Your fearless uniqueness draws out and encourages my timid attempts at individuality.You are not afraid of my awkward, embarrassing or even weird parts; instead you celebrate them. and share your own.You are like a “pied piper” of the misfits, orphans and those who don’t seem to fit in.I follow along with a smile of relief that I can finally drop the fear of my own differentness.Your willingness to explore all the shadows to find the light gives space for both the light and darkness in me.
My hope for you is that you can finally become anchored and truly free.Your big emotions toss you to and fro in the waves of life and you can easily wind up miles off course.The weight of shame is like a vest you wear instead of a life jacket that threatens to pull you under and for some reason you hang on to that thing like it is a badge of dishonor.Your biggest fear is that you don’t belong and yet, following right behind it is the fear that you might have to conform.You stay stuck in the delicious melancholy of sadness, never allowing yourself to grieve and truly let go of pain.It is as if you believe that what you truly deserve is to be alone and if anyone got too close they would find you to be unlovable.Your big dramatic moments are nothing more than a hurting child crying out to be loved.
The reality is that you hold within you such a powerful ability to love.A love that must be turned inwards.You must see your dignity, your beauty and your authentic uniqueness and love yourself… because we do.We see you, we hear you and we are overwhelmed by how incredible you are.But that is not why we love you.We love you for being you.We love you right in the midst of your awkwardness, embarrassments and weirdness.We are willing to sit in the darkness with you and also be dazzled by your light.We see your different faces, your walls and many talents and we see what is behind them as well.We love you for it all.
