When you were a beginner you let yourself be clumsy because quenching your curiosity was well worth the bruises.
And some people were judging you then just as some people are judging you now, but you hadn’t the time or inclination to care. You were too busy enjoying yourself, immersed in the adventure of romancing life.
That’s the secret: the beginner lives life fully open to the process. Skinned knees, roughed up feelings and all.
Try to get back to that fresh mind space every morning, that sacred place inside where all that matters is that you are vibrant and alive. Summon the vigor of fully trusting that life wants to love you beyond anything you’ve ever known or seen before.
She has so much to show you, beloved. Beyond all pain and judgement.
Beyond all fear.
Life invites you to begin again.

P.S. That fantastic Indian statue up there? It’s called Looking West, carved in 1902, a Lenape Indian Chief. Legend has it he’s watching his people leave in the late 1750’s, headed west for someplace less crowded. I took that photo of him while on a hike through the Wissahickon Valley Park in Pennsylvania.
