The Grove Prompt: Return

We are in week two of our annual three week series on Change, Return, and Remain.

Return can be true to its name, can’t it? Re + Turn. Turning again and again.

If you were like me, when you were a little girl you loved to spin around. I can remember having spinning contests with my sisters before bed where we spun and spun until, giggling, we collapsed on the floor.

With aging, however, my inner ear can take only one or two turns before I feel nauseous.

Maybe you are invigorated with the thought of returning and like the little girls in the living room, can turn and turn. But maybe you are more like the person who is no longer enamored with turning and instead feel disoriented and sick.

Regardless, we are here for each other.

Interestingly, when we solicited posts on this prompt, we received multiple pieces that were letters written to themselves. So, this week, consider writing yourself a letter. How would you console yourself? What words of comfort and hope would you offer yourself? What would you remind yourself during this season?

Let’s share our letters at The Grove. I can’t wait to read the words of wisdom you have for yourself and us!

Join the discussion this week in the comments, on Instagram using #VelvetAshesReturn, and then at The Grove beginning Thursday 6pm EST. Bring your blog posts to link up.
