Today I'm learning appreciation.
Not of everything going well,
But of people who sit within the mess.
Not needing to clean or fix.
I'm learning to appreciate the moments in life,
The ones I would probably rather ignore.
I'm learning that these are shaping me,
I'm learning to appreciate pain.
I don't like it,
But I can look at it,
And know that it has a story,
And that story is one of survival.
And I'm appreciating vulnerability,
The scariest mission I have ever gone on,
One of the most uncomfortable journeys I've ever set out on.
Yet it is bringing me to life.
