Today, let the sounds of the world spill in. Really listen.
A carrot’s crunch.
A spoon’s clink.
A yawn’s rustle in and out of lungs.
Sneakers crunching tiny rocks on the sidewalk.
A baby cooing at the sky.
Tiny birds calling for food from the home their mother made them.
The murmurs and thrums of useful machines: dishwasher, fan, computer, car.
The reassuring burble of water draining from a bathtub.
The persistent beat of your own heart.
Let every right-now, real-life thing drown out any voice that whispers you’re not good enough. Listen to the miracle of the world.
