Being graceful can be awkward. It can seem downright impossible.
We all lack grace, here and there, in movement and in heart.
I know I clench up so hard some days that the thought of moving through that brick wall of frustration seems impossible. It reflects in my physical world- I drop things, spilling tea or beads, banging shins on tables that haven't been moved for years. I've learned to stay away from the tooling bench on days like those. Eventually, I move on auto pilot into self-care, a bath, the gym or some yoga, stitching small things onto other small things, writing it all out, screaming in the car. Sometimes, I'm particularly in tune, and I do these things with purpose, examining the trail that lead me to that point, backtracking, finding my own north once more.
It comes back, the Grace we need to move through the world with an open heart, willing to listen and support those who need it.
Reconnect with yourself, and grace will find you.
