Weekend reminders… you don’t have to explain yourself; for that new job or that breakup or that change of pace. You don’t have to explain where you’re headed or where you’ve been. You don’t have to explain that pain or that hurt or the disappointment you may carry. You don’t have to explain your goals or dreams or the ideas you have bottled inside. You don’t have to explain that project idea or the way you choose to parent or how you’ve walked away from someone you once loved, but can’t love the way you use to anymore. You don’t have to explain.
And those who get to come along, won’t ask for the explanation. They’ll understand. They’ll stay close. They’ll accept + let you just BE. Because maybe that’s what you need for a while. To just be. You are brave + bold + beautiful and have a heart worthy of knowing, but you can also keep it to yourself for a while, until you are ready. Sending you hugs + love.
