Comfort in the Uncomfortable

The healer cannot heal others without first healing themselves

But how do you heal yourself

without allowing yourself

To live

To love

To feel

To anger

To cry

To laugh

To explore

To grow

To break free of all that you thought you were

all that others expect you to be

to become all that you truly are

It’s not about being comfortable in your own skin

But finding comfort in the uncomfortable

Because all that is uncomfortable is what pushes you further

Because breaking the mold and pushing through to the next level is how you grow

and growth is how you heal

In the moment

Sometimes you have to let it all go.
Sometimes you have to continue letting go.  It doesn’t happen all at once.
Baby steps.
Little by little.
It gets easier. 
It starts to feel lighter.
You learn how to keep going.
You learn not to look back,
Not to look too far ahead.
You stop.
Plant your feet on the ground.
Take time to feel the breeze on your skin,
The sun on your face,
The sand between your toes.
You take a moment to listen to life,
to love
but most of all
to yourself.

Unknown

So you thought you felt as i did
Looking for something
You thought you may have found it
Then it seemed to disappear
And fade away
You learned you were wrong
You made a mistake
Everything you thought you’d found
Felt
Seen
Turned out to be a mirage
Nothing but a mere illusion
What had seemed so real
So true
Was gone in a flash
What if you were wrong?
What if you ARE wrong?
What if none of it mattered?
What if you were wrong about knowing?
Maybe sometimes you just don’t know
What you think you know
Maybe sometimes the way you think things should happen, don’t happen that way at all
What if it takes more than just a moment
A feeling
A knowing
To really find the truth
What if it takes time
Work
Knowledge
To really know
What if you never know?
What if it takes change
Growth
Education
To really find what you thought you had lost
What if you thought you lost something
Only to realize it was really there all along
That it just wasn’t where you thought it was
Was right in front of your face but you weren’t really ready to see it?
Not at that time
What if
Just what if
None of that mattered
What if you were right where you were supposed to be
What if you weren’t supposed to know
What if you were supposed to learn
Grow
Live and love and change
Never really knowing all the answers
Just taking it all in
Being content in the moment
Realizing that even if you don’t know the why of the why
Its ok
Knowing that everything happens for a reason and accepting the unknown

I am

I am truth
I am beauty
I am confidence
I am light
shining forth
From the inside out
To reflect
all
that is within me 
Expanding
Into nature
to share with this world
To light
The way for others
To heal
To love
I am strength
unimagined
I am the only me
Made like no other
Beauty
Love
Gentleness
Radiating
from within
Shining bright for all to see
To empower others
To light the way
towards my path
So that i may see
where i am heading
To a place of peace and joy
To create
A magical moment
in the day to day
To touch one person
To light the way of hope
So that it may ripple on
to infinity
To spread
throughout the universe

Beauty

She radiates beauty
from within her soul
Shining bright
from the inside out
It shows
in her eyes
her smile
her gentle spirit
A strong
yet peaceful
beauty
which was hidden
for so long
Clouded
by those who came
before him
those
who dampened it
Who blocked it
who tried to steal a piece
to keep for themselves
Not knowing
it’s power
couldn’t be taken
It was meant
to be shared 
To grow
and blossom
to shine
and multiply
But only he
had the spirit
and the power
to set it free 
Only he
had the strength image

to show her
the reflection
through the waters
that ran deep
within him

Truth and lies

You try to cover your truth with lies
Close your eyes
You can’t disguise
The monsters and demons
The pit of my stomach
Intuition is beaming
It’s a knowing
A feeling
Lies so soft and sweet
Telling me what you think i want to hear
This is not strength
It’s fear
Afraid to speak your truth
Honesty unknown
Lie to me
To keep me smiling
But deep down inside
I am dying
Tearing apart with each falsehood
Truth hurts sometimes
Unfathomable
Breaks
Cracks
The pictures of perfection
shattered images
Facing reality
Not always easy
