I have previously mentioned that this little house I share with two other fabulous women has walls covered in quotes. Our favourite quotes. To give us inspiration. To help us remember we’re human. To find love in the hard moments. My favourite of all of these quotes resides in our dining room, its by Courtney A Walsh and she says it like this….
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 by 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 to be gorgeously human. Flawed and fabulous. And then to rise again into remembering. 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.”
As someone who constantly struggles to live in the present moment and to just be human and not strive for perfection, this quote struck a chord with me and is a great daily reminder to just be me!
I hope it does the same for you. Love love xxxx
