Sometimes things don’t go as planned.
Expectations rise and fall.
And fall. And fall.
Someone says or does something (or perhaps nothing?) and it opens up scars from the past
Scars that say you’re not good enough
Or that you’re dumb
Or not worth it
Or too much…
I’ll never forget the first time I heard Anis Mojgani perform Shake the Dust
years and years and years ago.
Recently, my fingers found a scar not quite healed
and those voices
came pouring down like gasoline on my open wound.
Let it be.
Let it go.
Shake the Dust
I heard it rattle in my mind.
And I hope that no matter what voices you may hear,
No matter who you are,
What you do,
What you look like,
Or how broken you are,
Shake the Dust. [watch the video below or if you don't see one, click here...]
