Softening and Seeking

I am learning to soften. To be soft.

I am learning to not let the world harden me, sprout bitterness within me.

I am learning to be vulnerable, and to allow this vulnerability to grow.

I am learning to embrace beauty rather than hide it.

I am letting joy come from the simple things.

I am letting myself feel the joy that is in the simple things.

I am letting the simple things be enough, be beautiful.

I am appreciating the breeze on my nose, the grass beneath my feet, the sun on my cheeks.

I am appreciating the cloudy mornings, the bright afternoons, the chilly evenings.

I am appreciating the creativity in the everyday and the unproductive moments that shine.

I am finding contentment in the whimsical, I am finding the whimsical in the ordinary.

I am finding contentment in the burst of fresh oranges, in a spoken line of poetry, in the days that do not end.

I am seeking God and what He has given me.

I am seeking all the beauty in this world.

I am seeking what is full, what gives and what takes. The unrushed, the slow, the restful. The present.

I am seeking life.
