Salt and Sugar

“don’t mistake salt for sugar.”- Milk and Honey, Rupi Kaur

This work is a personal story about excavating your truth and your voice. If you have to earn love, that is not love. Becoming one with who we are is to first show up for yourself. To honor your spirit. To give yourself permission to withdraw from those who diminish you and don’t allow you to fully show up in their presence. To say yes to your authenticity. Yes to your vulnerability. To say “Voice, you are welcome here. You have permission.”

"Everything we see has existed always, including the eyes we see through. There is no new matter and no new energy in the universe. We live linear time, but the enormity of existence transcends. Death is not the conclusion of our identity nor is birth the start of it. We have no beginning and we have no end."
