the guest house

Happy Friday, my dearest friends!

One of the ways that I'm working to infuse some new life into our presence here at Wellness by Kate is to share some of my favorite bits of inspiration with you! Last week, I shared with you a glimpse at what body love looks like at our beginnings.

This week, I'm sharing with you an excerpt that inspired self-reflection and creativity for me this week. 

Have a beautiful weekend, babes.

xx Kate


This being human is a guest house.
Every morning a new arrival.

A joy, a depression, a meanness,
some momentary awareness comes
as an unexpected visitor.

Welcome and entertain them all!
Even if they are a crowd of sorrows,
who violently sweep your house
empty of its furniture,
still, treat each guest honorably.
He may be clearing you out
for some new delight.

The dark thought, the shame, the malice.
meet them at the door laughing and invite them in.

Be grateful for whatever comes.
because each has been sent
as a guide from beyond.

- Rumi -
