The Glass Rose Day 3/30
A 30 Day detox from ALL that no longer serves you
If you missed the introduction (see "Day 2" here)
Day 3: Protect your peace.
The radiant flower before you is not unbreakable you see
a rare rose with tints of carnelian
is a mere reflection of the beauty cloaked by a beast
if this were a fairy tale you would pluck its petals to reveal the true being beneath
But this, is real life and this glass rose is a reminder that there are vulnerable and sometimes fragile stages on the journey we seek
So walk as if your feet were kissing the earth and choose your surroundings wisely
It’s okay to move silently and take a rest, for this path is one often sought but rarely traveled none the less
There will be magic and enchanting characters on this voyage but it is not companionship you yearn for, it’s your inner peace
Be wise, travel lightly, let go of baggage along the way and know that…
Today doesn’t determine tomorrow, always move at your own pace.
I am in control
I am protected
I am brave
I am blossoming into a stronger version of me
I am safe and supported
Word of the day
Make sure to preserve your energy. Be mindful of how and with whom you share this time with. It’s okay to be vulnerable but shelter your light. Spend time in solitude but when you do go out to play, make sure your company is supportive of your journey. You don’t need to explain yourself, just be you in a safe space. You are a delicate rose extremely radiant but right now guard your light, you are not shatter proof. Even in times where you must walk alone, you are protected and never fully alone.
