Finding The Compassion We Need

Finding The Compassion We Need

“Today I began to criticize myself and look at myself with a judgmental eye… but then instead of going all out in that direction, I stopped and I began to understand me. And then I began to be patient with me. And then I began to feel a softness in the middle of my chest. […]

Poetry Sunday-Be Like A Seed

Poetry Sunday-Be Like A Seed

    Be Like A Seed     See not the hopeless, helpless time. Go instead underground And be like a seed.     Seek instead the nourishment within your own soul. Bringing refreshment and urging you to grow. Letting go of your outer shell.     Draw your courage from deep inside, It is there […]

Seeking Vunerability

 “Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it.

Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will […]
