my grandmother passed away yesterday morning. it was so sudden and I hadn’t spent hardly anytime with her over the last two years and I am irrationally mad at my parents because they kept telling me not to worry or move my ticket to come home sooner. it hurts because I miss her but I have been sitting/walking/sleeping in meditation and prayers that she found peace despite the suddenness of her death.
If you’ve ever doubted yourself, walk deep into any forest. Notice how the trees still stand even though they are given no recognition. Walk along any stream. The water still flows, though no one stops to praise it. Watch the stars late at night; they shine without acknowledgment. Humans are just the same. We are made out of the same elements as these beautiful wonders. Always remember your beauty and self worth.
