Sometimes we find a piece of us that has been missing, and maybe we never knew, or realized it was lost. A piece can be large or small and found in a subtle way, or sometimes we receive a direct hit from the universe that shakes our foundation.

Often, a piece evokes some sort of feeling, and this feeling can hold varying degrees of significance to us. It may be tied to a memory or experience in the past, or it may feel new to us. Whichever the case, our boundaries have expanded and our perspective has shifted.

Picking up the pieces can imply something that was once whole, has broken and shattered. But, if we aren’t whole and perfect  to begin with, we pick up pieces to add, enhance, improve and create ourselves.
