“I will wait for you.”
“Take your time.”
“You make my day better.”
I say those words to my slow-moving, happy-go-lucky, Noticer of life child.
I watch as grateful eyes light up and tiny shoulders relax.
Those words are soul-building words to her.

“Mistakes mean you are learning.”
“It doesn’t have to be perfect.”
“Okay, you can have a few more minutes to work on your project.”
I say those words to my driven, contentious planner and pursuer of dreams child.
I watch as pressure escapes from her chest and aspirations soar higher.
Those words are confidence-boosting words to her.

“I appreciate you.”
“I’m listening.”
“You matter.”
I say those words to my hard-working, often underappreciated love of my life.
I watch as tensions loosen, eyes meet, and conversation comes easier.
Those words are affirming and connective words to him.

“It’s good enough for today.”
“Be kind to yourself.”
“Today isn’t over—there’s still time to turn it around.”
I say those words to my own perfection-seeking, worrisome heart.
I watch as my clenched hands open and tears fall as scars come to the surface.
Those are healing, hope-filled words to me.

“Things that break:

the ocean.
our hearts.

this is how
gardens grow.
this is how
the sun blossoms.
this is how we
make it home.
this is how we
learn to love.” — Pavana पवन (via thatkindofwoman)

“i don’t want you
to love me
for my flaws,
i want you
to love me enough,
to demand
that i grow.” — m.v., you can love my skin and hate the scars i put on it. (via h-o-r-n-g-r-y)
