"When you start to crack open, don't waste a moment gathering your old self up into something like you knew before. Let your new self splash like sunlight into every dark place & laugh & cry & make sounds you never made & thank al that is holy for the gift, because now you have no choice but to let all your love spill out into the world."

- Brian Andreas, Story of the Day

Beautiful, thoughtful, inspiring! Our inclination is to stay with what is known, what is comfortable, what feels familiar. But "when you start to crack open", no matter what the cause, it truly is a perfect time to " let your new self splash like sunlight into every dark place & laugh & cry & make sounds you never made".

Thank you for sharing this, Sarah!

In love and peace,

Terry
