My friend Nikole shared some words on Facebook over the weekend that took my breath away. In all the years using Facebook as a social media platform there are 4/5 posts like this that have really stood out to me and made me think. The words resonated and touched me…instantly bringing tears to my eyes. I thought I’d share these words with you.
Dear Human; You’ve got it all wrong. You didn’t come here to master unconditional love. That is where you came from and where you’ll return. You came here to learn personal love. Universal love. Messy Love. Sweaty Love. Crazy Love. Broken Love. Whole love. Infused with divinity. Lived through the grace of stumbling. Demonstrated through the beauty of… messing up. Often. You didn’t come here to be perfect. You already are. You came here to be gorgeously human. Flawed and fabulous. And then to rise again into remembering.
I went on to find the rest of the quote and who it was by. It continues:
But unconditional love? Stop telling that story. Love, in truth, doesn’t need any other adjectives. It doesn’t require modifiers. It doesn’t require the condition of perfection. It only asks that you show up. And do your best. That you stay present and feel fully. That you shine and fly and laugh and cry and hurt and heal and fall and get back up and play and work and live and die as you. It’s enough. It’s plenty
