Hello.

Welcome to The Feminist Vegan, where I write about wellness, mental health, and personal growth, all through the lens of social justice.

Let Everything Happen to You

Let Everything Happen to You

People often ask me if I am afraid.

Afraid to travel alone.

Afraid to move abroad.

Afraid to live far from home.

Afraid to write full-time.

Afraid to be on my own.

 

 

 

Yes.

 

All of the above.

(Sometimes.)

 

Rainer Maria Rilke said:

"Let everything happen to you.

Beauty and terror.

Just keep going.

No feeling is final."

 

I wake up with my pulse racing.

Let everything happen to you.

I fall in love with a new city.

Let everything happen to you.

I miss my train.

Let everything happen to you.

I want to stay.

Let everything happen to you.

I get lonely.

Let everything happen to you.

I get scared.

Let everything happen to you.

I get lost. 

Let everything happen to you.

I find my way back.

Just keep going.
