The other night, in the middle of the night, I couldn’t sleep. My mind was racing about all the things I hadn’t gotten done.

Eventually, finally, I had the thought:

“I can’t do anything about any of this. Let it go.”

In that moment that I surrendered, it felt like a presence encircled me. The next morning this is what I wrote.

The Great Mother came to me last night

She wrapped her arms around me

She reminded me that everything would be alright.

And she said:

You can’t give to others what you don’t give to yourself.
