“Even if your hands are shaking
And your faith is broken
Even as the eyes are closing
Do it with a heart wide open
Say what you need to say.”
-John Mayer, “Say”
My word for this year is SAY. Say all
The things that are bubbling up inside. Say the unspeakable, and most especially say the living daylights of of shame. Say, “I love you.” Say, “I’m sorry.” Say, “No.” say, “This is what I need.” Say what you honestly feel and what you think, instead of lying to make you look good. Say it out loud. Say it on paper. Say it whether or not anyone listens, because you are listening. Say what you need to say.
