To ALL of My Fellow Americans- Election Day 2020

To ALL of my fellow Americans: To those who have already voted. To those who will be voting soon. To those who are not going to vote. If your choice is different than mine: It’s okay. We are different people. If your voice is supporting that which I do not: I still support you as…

I Can See Your Perspective

I can understand your perspective. Not precisely the same way as you because I have not had your exact experiences- but when you share your feelings with me they can make sense to me if I imagine that I am you and I try to feel what you are saying. If I allow myself I…

Love, Sexuality and My Story

There is something I need to get off my chest. I have been keeping a part of myself quiet for a very long time and doing so for the following reasons: My never-ending fear of looking like I am dying to be in the limelight Not wanting to give people any more reasons to find…

I Love You

Because I can see inside of your precious heart Because of all the unique and important things you do each day Because I know that some parts of you don’t feel very good about yourself   Because you are so much more than your scars Because you are a perfect expression of divine love Because…

I Love My (Sick) Body

According to my mother, a part of me seemed “fragile” from the moment I was born.  Other pieces of mine such as strong spirit and an “I can do anything” attitude have done a lot to offset this truth in my life but nonetheless it was an accurate sensing. As a child I was often…

I Married Myself

Despite the fact that I had already been on a self-love journey for about seven years, a little over a year ago I realized that in many ways I was still more devoted to my partner than I was to myself. Don’t get me wrong, I have a really big heart and I enjoy nurturing…

I Am Afraid

Extreme Empathy

Sometimes I really question how I am ever supposed to “make it” through a “normal” length of life here on this planet when after 34 years I am still traumatized and sobbing over the fact that I just saw a spider in my kitchen with a very small bug dangling from its tentacles.  Ten minutes…

Happy Earth Day – Let’s Spread LOVE

I very much appreciate a day being set aside to celebrate and help heal the earth.  I know this earth day post is a couple of days late, but honestly, that works out perfectly for me.  You see, to me every, single day is earth day.  I am sure you have heard people (including me)…

Cry

Holding back is fear; to cry is to be courageous  Forget society Shed your tears There is no weakness in being true to your emotions To let them go is to be free Ignore all stereotypes, silly creations of the mind Let the rain fall down It is a beautiful thing Powerful.  Strong.  Bold.  Precious….

I Couldn’t Love You More

Standing here in front of me, broken as you think you are. A bird who doesn’t know they can fly. I haven’t healed all of my imperfections yet, you say.  I still need to grow. What you don’t realize is that I already see you.  I know who you are. Your eyes shine so brightly….
