It’s ok to not be ok.

I am loved regardless of how fast I get through this. It is not a competition.

It’s ok to slow down.

It’s ok to cry so much you’re not sure where those tears are even coming from–salt stinging your raw skin.

It’s ok to just hold on.

There is light in connection. There is light in reaching out. There is light in believing. There is light and hope in being open to receive love.

It’s ok to not be ok.

I will weather this storm in the safety of knowing I am loved and I will find respite in knowing I am cared for.

It’s ok to not be ok for as long as it takes for the rain to stop.

And while it’s pouring, I will breathe in the gentle fragrance of the desert rain, and find pause in peace. Because I will be ok.
