A weekly curated collection of essays, poetry, and reflections for your spiritual journey. From The Wisdom Years.
I’ve learned how to not be broken from life’s unwanted things by watching a willow in the wild wind tossing and bending rather than pushing back against the storm. It’s taught me that I can’t always have everything go my way.
Sometimes I need to bend a bit.
What Defines You
In this exquisite film from Green Renaissance, Danielsun Okeyo reflects on no longer being able to count on his own abilities. “I am not Superman,” he says, “and it’s fine. It actually makes it more beautiful that I’m not. The way I am right now is the way it was meant to be, and I’m at peace with that.”
