Saturday thoughts

Last night I looked back. I wanted to take stock. I realized that I had gone from a fearless teenager to a fearful woman, and had stayed that way for many years. It was no mystery: tragedies and cruelties had taken their toll, and at one [blessedly brief] time, I lived in constant fear of everything and for good reason. It was a vicious circle. Because I was fearful, I chose the wrong people, who in turn hurt me one way or another.

I didn't see a bright light or hear thundering voices: My voyage out of the fear was gradual, my innate stubborness propelling me towards something better. I learned to hear and listen to my intuition and the more I did that, the stronger it got. My intuition had been working fine all along -- it's just that I did not trust it [me]. It has never steered me wrong. I don't always listen to it but only in minor things, and I'm remedying that! You have to trust yourself before you can proceed.
Be well. Be safe. Be happy.

  4. Very wise words, my friend - especially timely today with another reminder that life is so short and fragile, as a blogging sister died unexpectedly. In my own experience, it's only when I've gone against my instincts that I made the worst mistakes. xo

  5. This resonates so strongly for me - you have expressed something that I have been unable to be clear about - thank you
