This year so far :: None of it contradicts



Written May 2023


Last night, I sobbed while held by my Love.


That sentence is an answered prayer.


I cried and asked for pain to be taken away from someone I love.


That sentence is a prayer I want to see answered.


* * *


I chose "none of it contradicts" as a mantra for this year.

I set it with the intention of forgiving myself for my past.

The universe applied it to my present.


* * *


Last year, I went to seven weddings. This year, it is May and I have been to three funerals.


I am in love with a man who brings immense brightness to my every single day.

My heart is breaking from witnessing friends navigate impossible circumstances.


* * *

These friends bring love to my life, as they look at me with tear-filled eyes.

I feel a growing sense of connection to whatever is beyond us as I navigate loss with an open heart and mind.


* * *

None of it, absolutely none of it contradicts.

Still my heart is growing to make room for all of it.

This is my lesson at this moment in time ::

Continue to make room for all that life brings to my door.

To the window of my awareness. That is really just a window after all. There is so much more going on than I can see from this vantage point.


* * *


Honoring this truth, while also honoring the truth of what is going on right in front of me. This how I embody that "none of it contradicts."


Which is a lesson I am still very much in the midst of. Yet I hope sharing my middle-of-it insights brings some comfort to whoever you are, however your heart is in this moment.



With So Much Love,

Mary Grace
