“I’m here to remind you, and myself, that all your feelings are welcome. All your emotions, your ‘too much-ness’, your intensity. All the parts of you that are deep and dark and challenging and hard.

They are welcome. They are beautiful and true. They are healing and powerful. They are the place from which the light is born. They are the reason you can feel so much love and joy.”
