“She unfolded the parts of herself that she used as her armour.” ~Vivienne
Unfolding is a word I can easily pair with life these days.
I feel like I’m slowly unfolding from my highly protective way of being. Something learned from a time when I needed to protect myself, to stop saving everyone around me and start saving myself.
But I had to put some armour up in order to learn these new ways of being. I found myself putting up walls of self-protection, armour that had its use.
But now this new way of being is securely in place and it is time to put the armour down. Maybe not put my guard down as self-protection can be a good thing. Its time to take a deep breath and remove the armour once was useful but is now just in my way.
I’m thawing out, opening up, unfolding into the potential of what is ahead.
What are you unfolding these days? What is unfolding for you?
