Sun Ritual (8”x10”).
When you can’t hug yourself, let the sunlight give you a warm, gentle hug.
During our journey, sometimes we get caught in shadow and let critical inner voice and self-hatred eat us alive. Sometimes it’s just impossible to believe “Everything’s gonna be ok”. Once a friend told me, “ If you let yourself sink all the way down to the bottom, you will naturally float up to the surface little by little”, so instead of pretending to be ok, I started doing that. It’s ok to be not ok. It’s ok just to exist, breathe and do nothing else. The sun’s always there to celebrate your life.
