lightanddark

Basking in the winter sun today.. before we welcome the rain. For it takes both sun and rain to grow a beautiful flower and both light and dark to grow a beautiful life. #basking #wintersun #welcometherain #rainscoming #lightanddark #sun #rain #winter #brisbanewinter #hibiscus #hibiscusflower #beautifullife #beautifulflowers #flowersofinstagram #grow #flower

A snap shot of me and my true love by the lovely @andreamichellephoto . . . ❤@pnwprinc3ss

My light was held in the dark until I was ready. The darkness is not a thing to fear, simply a place of the unknown – yet to be. Embrace with love your own darkness and the light will reveal your worth. -Kelly Martin ✨ . For most of my life, I wanted everyone to like me. This has meant hiding parts of me that I thought might upset or offend someone else. It didn’t matter who it was, I wanted them to like me at all costs; that was most important. I’m not sure where I learned to people-please, but it’s gotten me nowhere and places I don’t want to be. It’s hindered me. ✨ . One thing that has helped me break out of that has been to honor the dark parts of myself. We all have light and dark in us, it’s just that we’re conditioned to not give equal weight to both. Self acceptance followed. Not having to worry if I’m too much or not enough for people has been immensely liberating. ✨ . #diggingdeep #doingthework #delvingdeep #lightanddark #explorethedarkplaces #acceptance #balance #here #present #growth #findingjoyeveryday #authenticlife #vulnerability #vulnerabilityisstrength #uncontainedlife
