pivoting towards grace

I read the most beautiful sentence today. It was in reference to hardship, change, desire for a more fulfilling life. We can choose the well worn path, or we can pivot towards grace.

Grace.

It’s such a beautiful word.

It reminds me of a piece of a poem by David Whyte, What I Must Tell Myself

I know my innocence

and I know my unknowing

but for all my successes

I go through life

like a blind child

who cannot see,

arms outstretched

trying to put together

a world.

And the world

works on my behalf

catching me in its arms

when I go too far.
