Nov. 28th. 22


Move your body.


I know itโ€™s hard sometimes.


Stillness being familiar and safe.


Humans taught to be warriors made of cement and smooth marble.


Beautiful. Glorious. Still.


Taught to contract.


Hold everything in and look fine.


Hide every emotion inside.


Be tough. Strong. In line.


Nobody wants to hear you whine.

*

But your body, so wise.


Will keep that stored emotion


Itโ€™ll store it in your muscles


In your body


In your mind


You are an animal.


You are meant to be wild


To fuck, to sleep, to eat


To roar and wail when things threaten or scare you


You werenโ€™t meant to be still when a tiger tears at your limbs


You werenโ€™t meant to be still when someone you love shatters youโ€™re heart


You werenโ€™t meant to be still when the cost of sitting in an office all day makes you want to explode


You were meant to make noise, to sweat, to move, to respond, to cry, to be wild


To make a fucking mess


And then be done with it.


You can do it at home.


It can be our little secret.


But do it.


Tear at your pillows, tantrum, growl.


Youโ€™ll be frozen at first. Because thatโ€™s what weโ€™re taught.


But make noise and show up and then see what comes up.


You can be wild and professional


You can be wild and powerfully in control


You can be in your nature and wear parts of civilization by choice- decorate yourself with it. And donโ€™t forget whatโ€™s underneath.


You can be both.
