I lost the words

sky view, from my aunts apartment

I was exhausted yesterday from lack of sleep.  
I couldn't wait to climb into bed, close my eyes, and drift gently off to dream land.
But my mind would not allow it.
My head was swirling with a million ideas, 
words I wanted to write, phrases I wanted to remember. 
I wanted to write them all down, but laziness pursued and I never did.
Now those words and thoughts have escaped  me.  
Out there for another day hopefully, a day when I am ready to fully receive them.

Thank you

Squam Lake

Thank you for your kind words
for listening
never judging
and nudging me to fly

Thank you for opening your door to me
inviting me in
and making me feel so welcome

Thank you for believing in me
supporting me
and watching me grow

Thank you!

my little worry box

I am setting my worries free
Letting the sea take them
Letting the waves sweep them where they may

The sound of the ocean
The calming sound 
that soothes my heart, my mind, my soul

Worries do one no good
They bring grief and sorrow

My heart and soul want to sing and dance
My mind is doing just that

So I am setting my worries free
Dropping them inside this box
and letting the world take care of them

What a relief to know that I do not have to worry

Don't be afraid

Don't be afraid to make a fool of yourself
to stand up for what you believe in
to make decisions
to laugh, to cry
to hope
to embrace others around you
to love yourself
and to fully feel the joy's and sorrows that life brings you
Don't be afraid

Finally myself again

I found a quiet place by the babbling stream
I let the tears fall down my face
I released all the tension that was pent up inside me
I let go of all the anger I was holding onto
I sat there for awhile
Surrounded by nature
Surrounded by the sounds of peace
I held myself tenderly
I knew I needed to get all of this out
I knew I needed to be alone in those moments
It was a blessing to find such a perfect place, 
to free myself of this tornado that has been ripping me apart
I sat there
and sat there
Until I felt that I didn't need to be there any longer
I felt lighter, free, happy
I finally feel like myself again
