Self Compassion: A New Expressive Arts Piece

Self Compassion: Parenting the Inner Child

What I know about growth is that it takes the time it takes.

We can’t force it.

We can’t jump ahead in the line.

We have to start where we are, with acceptance that we don’t know whatever it is that we don’t know yet.

And when we know better, we do better.

It really is just as simple as that.

So dear child, the piece of me that hasn’t yet learned,

be grateful that you don’t know it all yet;

for the more you have to learn, the more of life you get to experience

in it’s raw beauty and infinite wonder.

And the more chances you have

to love fully, authentically, and completely.
