Looking In

I have been looking in.  
Trying to understand the feeling, 
figure out the emotion, 
and be kind to myself.  

Why is it so hard sometimes to be kind to oneself?

Favorite Things

As part of my homework for the unravelling e-course I had to photograph some of my favorite things.  Oh what a fun assignment.  Singing the song "My Favorite Things" from the Sound of Music I began snapping photos of things around my house.  This assignment really opened my eyes to how much I love so many of the things that I surround myself with.  

It was so much fun to photograph these things.  I kept snapping away with a huge smile on my face.  I needed this today.  To bring me back to myself.  To connect with the world around me.  And to fall in love all over again with myself.  I have been feeling lost.  This assignment really helped me find my path again.

This mirror

This mirror has seen all of my.  
My smiling face filled with happiness.
My eyes sad with sorrow.
The hurt in my heart.
The glow of a beautiful day.
Tired sleep eyes
Eyes beaming with joy.

This mirror has reflected back pieces of me, 
and forced me to look.
I cannot hide from this mirror.
Always it is there like a trusty friend,
telling me to open my eyes and see the beauty that is before me.  

This mirror holds my secrets, 
whispers sweet nothings,
catches my fears,
and protects my heart.

This mirror has made me begin to see myself, 
embrace myself,
and love myself.
