living through the feelings


Since returning
The connection between my mind and my pen has been a struggle
I have tried lining words up to form a sentence
Express my feelings
Release what is swirling around inside of me
But nothing is coming out

I am in a period of transition
Of letting go
and opening myself up to the world around me
Not holding anything to tightly
But allowing things to come in and go out

It is not an easy path to travel down
Being such a deep feeler
It can be difficult to give freedom to all of these emotions
Allowing them to just be what they are
Without holding on

I am bravely stepping forward
Through the darkness
And the questions
Digging deeper into the strength that is within me
Revealing pieces of my heart with each step

I know I must live boldly
Without fear
Planning my next adventure
And standing tall in the uncomfortableness of life
Reaching, stretching, growing

My precious friend . . . your words bring such beauty to my heart. If you are struggling with words and putting pen to paper, I certainly don't see it! You have such a way of revealing your heart and I am always touched by reading your thoughts. Thank you for having this beautiful blog and sharing with us. Those of us who receive your words are the gifted ones!

I love how I never really know what you're talking about...but I mean, of course I care..and want to know...but my point is: it doesn't matter. I love that you allow us to use your words as we see fit in our own lives. you are so generous. but I want to know more. :)
