“We do not believe in ourselves until someone reveals that deep inside us something is valuable, worth listening to, worthy of our trust, sacred to our touch. Once we believe in ourselves we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight or any experience that reveals the human spirit.”
― E.E. Cummings
Now can come the revealing. Anyone reading this and anyone not reading this can know that you are worth it. There is that in you that is a star, a deity who is worthy of all the wonderment and joy that this universe offers. You may falter and fall but you will rise again. Because life sometimes throws us curves and sometimes we give into temptations. Sometimes we may do terrible things. That does not make us unworthy, it makes us human. Being human with faults and foibles is something to celebrate. Realizing who we are and our capacities even if we have not lived up to them is happy making. Remember that we are all stars and we all contain universes. Remembering this can help us get through even the darkest nights of our soul and the greyest days.
