"Just give me a reason,
Just a little bit's enough
Just a second, we're not broken
Just bent and we can learn to love again.
It's in the stars,
It's been written in the scars on our hearts
We're not broken
Just bent and we can learn to love again."
How often do the forces of the universe, of nature, of people push relentlessly against us? Are you broken, or are you just bent? Most people don't actually break, but they are so bent, they don't realize they can fix themselves.
Most people's yards are covered in grass, a seemingly unimportant plant. But grass teaches us a good lesson. Grass looks better when it's been cut and trimmed, but if you wait too long to cut it and cut off more than half the blade, it hurts it. It's better to trim a little off at a time, even if you have to mow more often. Life lessons are best learned a little at a time, but more frequently than a huge blow to our soul.
Grass is also resilient. It gets sat on, walked on, played on, driven over, squashed flat, and it still pops right back up. It's not broken, just bent. The wind blows the grass till it's almost lying vertical, but as soon as the wind stops, it straightens itself and continues to thrive. Rain and hail pelt the grass flat, snow covers it for months, and it comes right back in the spring.
Finding a moment of introspection can happen easily while laying in the grass looking up at the vast blue sky while white clouds float lazily in the warm summer sun. The ground is a firm anchor to hold you while look into the unending blue space above you. Feelings of being grounded while having unlimited potential.
"Sometimes the best that you can do is just to jump back in
Cause I've got me a fearless heart
Strong enough to get you through the scary part
And it's been broken many times before
A fearless heart just comes back for more."
Introspection can often lead to healing. You will be able to unbend and untie the knots in your soul. It gives a feeling of power, peace, and a fearless heart. You'll be able to jump back in to the game of life. You'll be strong enough to get through the scary parts. Keep coming back for more!
