It takes time to age, to mature. Experience to learn wisdom.

I feel like my journey has been full of starts and stops. And I don’t know if I am any further along than when I started.

I don’t want to feel like a failure, and I don’t want to feel like getting started again is a hopeless cycle.

But I trust that any effort to being myself closer to You is valuable.

Give me ears to hear You.
An open heart to receive instruction.
Courage to follow the path you unveil.

I’m mostly just a scared bundle of nerves, worried about how to make my life work without making a big mess of it, without falling into the traps of my heritage.

I want to be light and love. And I want to foster it in my life and in the lives of those around me. But I know it’s going to take being honest with who I am, where I am and how I relate to Your guidance in my life.

Help me own up and accept where I am so that I can take the next steps forward.
