"Some days the best gift you can give yourself, and the world, is to not try to hold it all and to allow yourself to collapse."
I saw Sonya Renee perform at the Seattle Poetry Slam a couple of weeks ago. If you do not know who she is and have never seen her perform, check this out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0soC-Dvv1f0. (The sound isn't great, but the poem will blow you away anyway.)
This quote is from a story she told about her dog and its unreliable bowels, but she made the point that it applies to all of us at one time or another.
A few days later was the yoga incident, wherein I tried to hold it all for our family and found that I just couldn't.
What can YOU let go of as a gift to all of us?
