A Letter about Hard Days

Dear Friend,

No one said being spiritual would make your days easier. But it does mean, we walk through hard days trusting in a God that’s bigger than the the problems we face. I won’t lie, today was a hard day. I would not wish divorce on anyone, let alone disagreement about custody of your child. It sucks, there’s no easy way around it.

Despite all the hardness about it, I know there’s something bigger than me that loves me, my ex, and my daughter. “This too shall pass.”

I have no spiritual advice to give, except on hard days I like to pray while I walk to remind myself that there’s still beauty in the world. Even on hard days the autumn leaves dance in the evening sun.

Love and love,

A Fellow Seeker

Meditation Poem Series: #6

It was hard to get out of bed while it was still cold and dark, but I managed to sit and meditate on my cushion. I am feeling a bit anxious about the list of things I have to do today, and court appointed mediation tomorrow with my ex-wife. All that to say, it was super nice to simply sit and breathe.

I am pulled in all directions
sitting still, I breathe
