Recently, we’ve noticed thorns and sparks growing within us, causing pain within our emotional and physical bodies. We’ve noticed a perennial of painful love blossoming within our core. This emotional tolerance has kneaded a doughy heart, capable of enduring the overflowing tides of an eroding ego. There continues to be days of anguish and sparkling anxiety.

May the sheen of your armor deflect that which seeks to cause you heartache, may your armor glimmer in the glow of your day.
