    i just really, really love this …
    it’s surely at the heart of my path these days …
    “learning to love all of me. even my monstery parts.”
    i keep returning to this image …
    as it is drawn, written + illuminated here, being with my monstery parts becomes a softer, lighter + clearer practice …

    with gratitude,

  19. elizabeth says:

    I am getting better at loving my monstery parts, I am not as good at loving the monstery voices in my head. I know that their mission is to keep me safe, but sometimes I wish they would stop – because they always seem to go about it in ways that I do not appreciate.

    Happy Halloween! πŸ™‚
