The things that will change your life

The things that will change your life

Start happening when you stop denying your greatness

When you admit that, yes you are messed up,

Probably the most messed up person you know

But that does not make you less of a person.

In fact, it makes you more of a human.

 

The things that will change your life

Will be the ones you’ve always dreamt of,

Like that one breathtaking dance class that you actually had a dream about.

But they will also be things you could’ve never imagined

Like that poem you heard that made you laugh and cry at the same time.

 

The things that will change your life

Are actually not things.

They are not collectibles even though you will have a special place for them in your heart.

They are not toys even though you will occasionally play with them in your mind.

They are not fairytales even though you will sometimes wonder if they really happened.

 

The things that will change your life

Are big smiles and silent laughter.

Tears that come from a place in your body you didn’t know existed.

Movements that have been waiting for centuries to come through you.

Thoughts you never thought you’d have.

Hugs that you knew from the very first moment you’d share with exactly that person.

 

The things that will change your life

Are your darkest breakdowns

That always (I promise you) lead to your brightest breakthroughs.

The things that will change your life

Your mind will forget

But your cells will always remember.

So, when you go to a place of denying your own greatness, as all of us do,

Please, stop for a second and listen

To your breath – it will teach you how to let go,

to your blood – it will teach you how to flow with ease,

to your heart – it will teach you how to dance to your own rhythm.

 

The things that will change your life

Have already happened.

You just have to remember them.
