Just as you are

Sometimes, the world projects images and labels on you that can make you feel scarier or bigger than you actually are. Today’s morning word? Know that you are fearfully and wonderfully made, exactly as you are. Don’t let someone else or the powers that be tell you otherwise. In other words, how Mary Oliver said it:

“You do not have to be good.

You do not have to walk on your knees

for a hundred miles through the desert repenting.

You only have to let the soft animal of your body

love what it loves.”
