And I Shall Love Me

Because who better to love me than the one who knows all of my light, darkness, beauty and beast? Once upon a time I beleived it selfish to love me….not entirely selfish but a little bit.But then in the moments of treasuring myself I saw how my heart opened to everybody.I saw how clearly a day of loving me….not waiting for another to love me….not giving all of my love away…..but loving me was an incredible gift to the world and beyond.



And I Shall Love Me – Forever and Ever Amen.


Coming Around

Something was shifting

and she could feel

herself coming around.

She was coming up

with fresh eyes and

a deeper love,

light and understanding.

Every ending is a new beginning.

Every rose has it’s thorns.

Always there is light at the end of the tunnel.

Something was shifting

and she could feel

herself coming around.

Soon she would have no choice but to SHINE.

Sitting In Sadness

It was difficult some days when all was silent and the demands on her time were gone.  The distractions and constant chatter of life drowned out so much of her feeling of being lost.  She knew it was important and wise to sit in the sadness but it hurt to feel so flailing, falling and out of control.  Nobody had the words for her, nobody had the answers.  They told her that she should walk alone – build up her muscles but she resisted that notion as she had seen how prickly and hard women could become.  Yet she sat alone anyways in the sadness that burnt her eyes and made her scared for what had become of people and their hearts.


Blooming, Death and Dormancy

She had learned about the cycles

and seasons in life.

She would delight always

in the Blooming.

Accept with curiosity

the necessary Death.

And of course,

Embrace the required Dormancy.

Life had seasons.

Years had seasons.

Everything always Bloomed again.
