|We are all unique and amazing. With this notion bouncing around inside me I offer to the world what I have to share. The words inside my head have reached to overflowing and in an attempt to keep from exploding I have taken to writing. What follows is the result of purging my mind.

all too often I stand in the place of darkness and search for light.
today, I stand absorbing the darkness.
I stand, accepting that I am the
Inside I begin to see clearly.
the map begins to draw itself, not
of where I am but of who I am.
I discover this is not darkness, this is
the longer I stand the less unknown I become.

You are enough.
You were born perfect.
And then someone told you to try harder.
You heard your shape was not the same as some others.
Your skin is too fair, too dark, to freckled, too plain.
You could be smarter.
You make someone else feel dumb.
Somewhere we forgot to wash our hands of this.
And our hands soiled the rest of us, until we began to swallow the filth without question.
It is time to forget.
It is time to remember
mistakes are learning in process.
you can be no one else but you.
your uniqueness is what makes you special.
there is nothing wrong with being special.
the downs are there to emphasize how wonderful the ups are.
and the in between is neither up nor down.
When I say “You” I more often mean “I”.
I was born perfect.
I am enough.
TruthDec 1, 2015
my eyes well with tears for my truth looks like no one else's.
Validation, respect, purpose can be looked for and never found until within I find it and match it to that.
Unique does not come in degrees. no matter how hard I fix my gaze I can never see myself, I must know myself unseen.
Yet, we are taught to accept nothing we can not see.
Truth is a matter of perspective and no two of us has the same perspective.
My truth is also untrue... and my eyes well with tears... and my tears stain my face... and my soul shivers inside seeking comfort.

as I age I become new.... the journey has begun..... wings unfolding....
ahead not only learning to fly but learning to land... having been a
creature of the earth for so long it seems strange to consider the
air.... with wings I regard wind in a different way... from the air the
earth which seemed so comfortable becomes something altogether
different... new... new perspectives... new opportunities.... new
information... a new normal... as I once was the earth... I will be the
TodayOct 5, 2015
No one warned me about today, or yesterday, for that matter.
I wonder about tomorrow, yet cannot put much energy to it because I first must manage today.
Was I told that life might get in the way of living?
Did someone ever say the chemicals that make you wonderful could one day drive you mad?
It is today.
We are the same and yet so very different than what we once were.
When did the gravity of life increase to nearly crushing?
When did I become too weak to stand under the weight of living?
When did I start considering giving up?
When did okay become okay?
And striving for wonderful left to others?
When did I forget how to breathe?
No one warned me about today or yesterday, for that matter.
Sacred vs. Sacrosanct.Sep 4, 2015
I have until recently not considered the word sacrosanct. I had held the understanding that when something was sacred it was held in the highest regard. Now I have discovered Sacrosanct. The definition of sacrosanct is something that is extremely sacred. To be held in a higher regard than sacred. I had not considered that there could be more than sacred. My mind is opening to the idea of what is beyond sacred what more there can be. What does extremely sacred look like? feel like? The idea of beyond sacred the reality of beyond sacred rocks my world my physical world, my spiritual world. In my travels I have been to many sacred places experiencing the awe and wonder. I now feel that I am called to discover the sacrosanct places of the world. Just as I was drawn to find the definition of sacrosanct, I feel something deep within me needs me to find these sacrosanct places in the physical world to connect with my sacrosanct soul.
