Where I’m from….
I am from a plain manila folder;
From 3M and At-A-Glance.
I am from the plain house in the middle of the block;
Masculine, formulated, cacophonous.
I am from Willow trees;
Strong roots with the tenacity to live.
I’m from Saturday afternoon Little League Games and road trips to Arizona;
From Janice and Virginia.
I’m from the secret keepers and the keepers of secrets;
From “shhhhh” and “smart is better than pretty.”
I’m from dropping to my knees to find my seat down the pew and Wednesday Night Bible Studies.
I’m from Los Angeles and Belfast;
Comfort food and Corned Beef and Cabbage.
From the young couple that loved each other but chose an education instead of their child;
The young man who already had 4 sons but wanted a daughter more than anything;
From the antique hope chest that is new to us;
I am these ordinary items that are only meaningful to three.
My life is a series of events and experiences that has brought me to today and made me the woman I am. I am a culmination of every experience of every woman that has passed through my life. While none have ever stayed, they’ve each given me an experience to share, to make all our journeys a little bit easier.
What’s important to me is to live my life by doing my best to do no harm to another person, animal or the planet. I try to keep the goal in mind at all times and honor myself at the same time. Sometimes that gets tricky but I hope to find a way no matter how small to leave this world a little bit better than I found it.
I love how my journey has taught me that I am the only one who’s responsible for my inner happiness. I’m at thee happiest place I’ve ever been in my life. No matter what my challenges are, the sweet happy feeling remains untouched. I smile from my toes to deep warm heart which shines through my eyes & lights up the room. Grateful. Happy.
I think and see things differently. A lot of people do not see the bigger picture or my bigger. I find myself enlightening people, I hardly get enlightened. Pain has opened my eyes to A lot of things and helped me evolved as a woman.
I have been on my journey of rediscovering myself and self love for about 5 years now and hope to share ideas and inspiration with a like minded tribe. X
