a long time ago, I wrote a blog post called “10 not so tiny truths”, and it is still one of my favorites. it’s chalk-full of small, easy-to-remember truths for the days where you just can’t, you know?
well a lot of you really seemed to find a sense of solidarity and hope in that post, and today when I woke up totally askew & feeling all off, I realized it might be time to not just remind myself of those sweet old truths, but bring to light some new ones that I want to always remember.
to read the previous list of ten not so tiny truths, all you have to do is click here.
1) there is enough grace (or forgiveness, or hope, or love, or _______) for all of us, and you don’t have to fear it running out.
2) it’s okay to stop watering the dead things.
3) you have been called “good & blessed”.
4) Jesus doesn’t regret saving you.
5) if you feel abandoned by churches or spirituality or religion or just love in general, remember… God seeks what has been driven away.
6) you are allowed to change.
7) truth often divides before it binds.
8) nothing is ever wasted on Jesus.
9) just because you are soft does not mean you are not a force- honey and wildfire are both the color of gold. // Victoria Erickson
10) mercy triumphs over judgement.
tuck these small & powerful truths into your heart. save the link. share the post. copy them into your journal. write them in sharpie on your arms. you do you, sister.
but remember them well, and recall them when you are floundering in doubt, in fear, in shame, in loneliness, in insecurity, in forgetfulness, in depression, in the in-between.
remember them always, and repeat them to your heart and to the hearts of your sisters and brothers. breathe fresh air into these truths as you turn them over and over and manifest them in your life.
I’ll be here with you… repeating, ruminating, manifesting.
