I invite you to explore who you are without shame. To welcome the parts you have repressed and diluted. To step into the entirety of your body, the expressions you have buried for the safety of an illusion.
I invite you to expect more from the people in your life, the ones you love and the ones you are yet to know. To understand that your standards are not an infringement on the people suitable to be in your world.
I invite you to be happy, even as the world around you burns. To live your moments guilt free before they are gone forever.
I invite you to be honest, when it hurts more than untruths. To feel relief at the lineage of suffering you undo, with just one free breath.
I invite you to be embarrassed, for all your failings and the times you let yourself down. The moments you are silent when they expect you to speak and when you talk too fast or say the wrong thing.
I invite you to abandon it all, when your interest has peaked, when you are out of strength or patience and need a different direction, again.
I invite you to be loved by yourself, no matter what and despite your choices.
I invite you to show up for yourself, invitation or not.
