As a child, and a sensitive one at that, I would sometimes feel “shushed” too sensitive, too mushy, too this too that, too much! As a woman, I finally figured out being tender and open is a beautiful thing.
Don’t allow anyone or anything keep you from feeling tenderly, fiercely, and living fully. Allow yourself to be affected by life, to feel deeply, to be sensitive, deeply sensitive. Experience all of your life and at the end you will get to say, “It has been a wild and glorious ride.”
My mom is living out her final days of her extraordinary life. She will say she has had a wild and glorious ride, and she is ready to let go with a filled soul, brimming over with life’s experience; love, heart ache, playfulness, love, adventure, broken hearts, love, injury, loss, joy, failure, love, celebration, weeping, belly laughs, and more…love.
Life is hard, life is broken souls,
Life is soft, life is tender souls that flex with injury,
Life is love.
Live out loud,
Live with a full heart, live with a broken heart,
Live wildly, live tenderly, and dare to expose your underbelly, soft flesh that life imprints, feel all of it,
it is meant for you.
It is meant for you.
In celebration and honor of my mother, Babs Read and her wild and glorious life.
