31 Days of Self Love: For Future Leah

31 Days of Self Love

Day 27: What is one choice you can make right now that your future self will thank you for? 

Be still.

Instead of chasing change, I am learning to be still in it.

Be still with my decisions.
Be still with my words.
Be still in what I share.
Be still

I know how to do this. I know how to wait out storms and see where things are going before making my next move. I learned it early sitting under tables while adults talked and hiding just out of site in the hall trying to hear what was coming. I know how to know more than others and wait until they catch up. I know how to hold my own counsel and bide my time. Every women knows this from the core of her being because men have taught us that our stillness creates time and space.

I’ve been still before so I will be still again.

Future Leah will be grateful for the stillness and the time taken to think. You never know who or what may show back up during a good stillness.

Be still Leah. Be still.
