For ease

We’re living in some scary, challenging, uncertain times right now. There are things bigger than us happening. 

I mentioned to a client yesterday the incredible sadness I feel about events going on in the world that I can’t even fathom.

Knowing it’s my sadness that makes me human I’m grateful to feel it, but it’s not a place I want to live from. It’s too overwhelming. I also know that dwelling in it doesn’t serve me or anyone else. Instead, I choose to send love. 

This poem came into my inbox yesterday and I’d like to share with you. It’s by Bronnie Ware, a former palliative care nurse and author of ‘The Top 5 Regrets of the Dying’.

A Prayer for Ease

For those who wonder where tomorrow’s food is coming from,

For those who don’t feel safe in their living situation,

For those who are surrounded by people but are desperate for connection,

For those who no longer have the strength for hope,

For those who haven’t been held in far too long,

For those who are doing their best but feel like they’re drowning,

For those who have never felt understood by others,

For those whose heart aches beyond bearing,

For those who have been misjudged and suffered because of it,

For those who just need life to be easier,

I see you and I acknowledge you.

You have come this far already.

You have overcome awful challenges that no one else may ever understand.

You are stronger than you know.

But sometimes, you don’t need strength to keep going.

You need strength to let go.

I wish that for you.

Let go and let life help you.

Let it whisper hope back into your tender heart and weary soul.

Let life reveal the next signpost instead of you having to know all the answers.

You are worthy of ease.

You are worthy of love.

You are worthy of joy.

I wish that for you.

I hope this meets you where you’re at today.
