Three little words :)

I discovered a wonderful album from an artist I’d never heard of before this weekend: Phillip Phillips – Behind the Light.

Listen to my two favourite songs here:

With the immigration laws finally changing and a manic few weeks behind me at work, compassion has been on my mind a lot the last while. I’m making that conscious effort to apply what I’ve learned… act out of a place of compassion and love… listen to the clients (without worrying about how much time the phone call is taking out of my day) and teaching those around me with kindness, patience and joy (even when around us there is chaos).

The lyrics of Unpack Your Heart are especially perfect for this moment, a moment of buoyancy finally again. I think I understand now and I feel a lot better today – like I finally conquered something important, even though I can’t put it in words yet, I feel better prepared for the next phase and whatever it brings… :)

“Unpack Your Heart” 

Meet me where the sunlight ends
Meet me where the truth never bends
Bring all that you’re scared to defend
And lay it down when you walk through my door
Throw all of it out on the floor
Your sorrow, your beauty, your war
I want it all, I want it all

Bring your secrets, bring your scars
Bring your glory, all you are
Bring your daylight, bring your dark
Share your silence
And unpack your heart

Show me something the rest never see
Give me all that you hope to receive
Your deepest regret dies with me

The days when you stumble and fall
The days when you grind to a crawl
The treasure that hides behind your walls
I want it all, yeah I want it all

Bring your secrets, bring your scars
Bring your glory, all you are
Bring your daylight, bring your dark
Share your silence
And unpack your heart
Unpack your heart

Oh, I’m on your side
So shed your shadow
And watch it rise

Oh, I’m on your side
So shed your shadow
And watch it rise
Into your darkness
I’ll shine a light

Bring your secrets, bring your scars
Bring your glory, all you are
Bring your daylight, bring your dark
Share your silence

Bring your honor, bring your shame
All your madness, I will tame
Won’t you lay down, down your guard
Share your silence
And unpack your heart
