Revisiting when

I have been trying to be more present lately. I have a tendency to lose myself sometimes in work, family, tasks at home, other people‘s lives, etc. and I need to remind myself to come back from the past and actively learn and listen to the now. Decluttering my environment is my way of relieving myself of the weight of the past; a clean space, means a blank canvas to discover and create how I want my life to look. In working through this ritual, I came across a quote that I scribbled down back in 2013. I love these words today as I did then because it it is a great reminder that as I take these steps forward, it is ok to be me and to love myself each day through each pitfall because I, also, am very … human. “I must learn to love the fool in me--the one who feels too much, talks too much, takes too many chances, wins sometimes and loses often, lacks self-control, loves and hates, hurts and gets hurt, promises and breaks promises, laughs and cries. It alone protects me against that utterly self-controlled, masterful tyrant whom I also harbor and who would rob me of my human aliveness, humility, and dignity but for my Fool.”
