Day of Rest

The universe is not short on wake-up calls. We’re just quick to hit the snooze button. ~Brené Brown

Don’t go back to sleep. Keep your heart open, even when it’s being broken. Don’t give up, or do exactly that, let go and surrender to your life as it is. Stop wishing for things to be different, resisting how things really are, let go of hope and fear and be here, now. This is all there is, this moment.

The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you.
Don’t go back to sleep.
~Rumi

Yes, you are vulnerable and you will be hurt. But, staying open and awake is also the only way to know joy and love, to be fully alive. This is the deal, this is all there is, this is it. Beautiful and brutal, tender and terrible.

Don’t go back to sleep.
