Today, remember that you have a still place inside of you where you can take refuge. When you can find a moment, retreat into that place where you meet the wise and whole parts of yourself. Pause there, steady yourself, feel confident in your strength. Be shielded for a moment from the winds of judgment, opinion, rush, comparison, and fear.
