Inspiration for when you feel lost


The true quote from this poem, The Clearing, by Martha Postlewait, is actually,

"Wait there patiently, 
until the song 
that is your life
falls into your own cupped hands..."

But the first time that this poem was read to me, the version instead said,

"Wait patiently
for the song 
that is only yours to sing,
to fall into your own cupped hands,"

And even though both sets of words are equally beautiful, the refrain that often comes back to my head is about the song that is only mine to sing.

What does that even mean??

Well for me it means, that there is something out there that only I can do. And when I find it....that's where the magic happens.

So what is the song that only you can sing? And once you find it, take a moment to think about how you are going to share that gift with the world…because after all…you are the only one that can share it.
