It was what she said that opened up my eyes to the journey I am currently traveling. I keep dreaming that my writing will make a difference, that I will gather and tend to the souls of others, that what I do in this world matters.
Hearing what she said made me realize that I am currently walking the walk. While deep in the thick of it I did not realize that I am already living my truth. I am cultivating my dreams. I am tending to hearts. I am writing from a place of honest vulnerability. I am touching peoples lives the way I have always dreamed of. I am inspiring others.
Sometimes we need our dear friends to hold a mirror up in front of us so that we can see all that we are. It is through their reflection of us that opens up our eyes to our own innate beauty. They see us through unfiltered lenses. They are the recipient of our energy. They feel what we give them and they can show it back to us.
She said ... is a prompt from a course I am taking called Community Grace with Hannah Marcotti. The prompt was to go through text messages, emails, social channels, and interactions with our tribe and pull out the pieces when they hold up the mirror showing me where I am really there for them.
I took some time to go through my facebook feed and found the above words written from others. It opened up my eyes to the journey that I am on. To quickly I can lose sight of all I am. It is my tribe that constantly holds up the mirror and helps carry me through. They reflect the purest pieces of me, and I do the same for them.
This is a reminder that we are not meant to travel this journey alone. We are meant to walk together. To hold hands, laugh, and love.
I encourage you to go through this exercise and see what you can unearth that your tribe has reflected back to you. Write your own She Said and tuck it in your pocket to turn to again and again. For what they say is the truth. Feel it, know it, believe it.
