  • It might be the weather that my body and spirit feels down, the soul seems to be getting affected by this quandary too. I search not for answers but for the root course of this as I sway with the tides. Always looking to better myself and have the ripple effect stream to others.
    My wounds so to speak are my purpose, healing them starts with me. I can’t help heal the world if I am not in the right mindset to heal myself.

    Being aware of this fact makes me look inward first and work with whatever I feel or see that doesn’t please me or the self. I don’t know how to avoid my feelings or emotions other than let them ride. They may be pleasant or not but they happen to be there and avoiding them is just like putting on a bandage and assuming the wound is healed. Knowing that my life is a precious flower and there’s unlimited potential in it and so many untapped gifts that I am yet to open, I will strive to keep myself alert as old petals wan out, learn from them and embrace the new ones as they reveal themselves.
    Wait……….is that too much self-attention?? Can I make a worthwhile contribution in the world if I don’t do the same to myself?
