MONDAY MANTRA: TRUST

Inner GoddessKate WeinerComment

Six or so years ago, my friend Lynn had us draw painted rocks at her baby shower imprinted with the values she hoped to pass on to her daughter. I've held tightly onto this rock ever since. It's my beloved talisman, a reminder of the many super rad women I am lucky to have in my life, and the origin for Monday's mantra: trust.

Trust that you are capable.

Trust that you are safe.

Trust that you are loved.

Trust that all will work itself out.

Trust in the present. 

Trust in your breath.

Trust in your experiences.

Trust is a pretty fearless/terrifying thing to do. Trust is about detachment but it's also about letting ourselves be just as we are in the faith that even if we can't control every single thing (which um, yeah, we CAN'T) there are a thousand and one variables working with us. I hope that throughout this week, you can ground yourself in trust. Whether you are making a major move or a small shift, trust that the fundamentals will always apply—you are capable, you are safe, you are loved, and all will work itself out.
