encompassing captivating consuming
our very sacred am.
countless forceful bursts
–rarely cheering us–
attempting to remind us of
our failings, imperfections,
our very humanity.
demanding that i
reduce my harmful signs of aging
(umm, no thank you. where’s the button “i love the way my face records my very existence”?)
laughter completely felt
pain deeply owned
life truly lived.
i can choose where i give my attention.
i can choose what i believe about this spectacular world.
i will choose how to live me.
i am enough to simply
we are already enough.

This reminds me of another of my favorite quotes:
“We don’t have to do anything to be glorious; to be so is our nature. If we have read, studied, and loved; if we have thought as deeply as we could and felt as deeply as we could; if our bodies are instruments of love given and received – then we are the greatest blessing in the world. Nothing needs to be added to that to establish our worth.” — Marianne Williamson, A Woman’s Worth
Thank you for the reminder! xoxo
Peace AND Prosperity,
Thanks for this, Becky – I really needed it!
Oh, Becky! I adore you!
Beautiful poem! Is it ok if I share it with others (giving you credit, of course)?
Thank you (((ALL))) for holding this supportive and loving space. Linda, I’d be most honored. Thank you. _/\_
I like reading you, thank you very much! And I love the italics of harmful signs of aging and your response to that concept. I’d never thought of it that way. I will happily adopt that idea from you.
