I love this picture because I look calm and content, when in fact I was freezing to death without my coat, hat, gloves and scarf out on the open, exposed moorland with windswept, scraggly hair, blue finger-tips and a perpetually runny nose. But I was still, definitely, calm and content.. For about 5 seconds. 😂
Lately I've been really in tune with my inner fire, like I have an irrepressible strength that has bubbled to the surface of my soul. I still find that, so often, I am expected to be small and meek, to not argue or express myself or my opinions. But I refuse to silence my roaring soul any longer. I've battled with an inferiority complex for such a long time: I've felt too smart, not smart enough, too loud, too quiet, too small, too large, underqualified, overqualified. Doubt is such a huge waste of valuable energy. Undervaluing ourselves only stops us from really becoming who we are supposed to be.
I keep thinking about the Nikita Gill poem "Wolf and Woman" so I thought I'd share it here.
I am more wolf
and I am still learning
how to stop apologising
for my wild." 🌙
Have a lovely weekend, dearhearts ✨
