Half of me is filled with bursting words and the other half is painfully shy. I crave enlightening solitude and being an introvert yet also crave people and can be quite gregarious. I want to pour life and compassion into everything yet also nurture self-care and go lightly. I want to live within the rush of primal intuitive decision, yet also wish to sit and contemplate. This is the messiness of life – we are complicated creatures, and ultimately, the balance comes from this understanding. Be water; flowing, flexible and soft. Subtly powerful and open. Wild and serene. Able to accept all changes, yet still led by the pull of steady tides.
