A conversation about emerging from the dark...
Oh, some days it’s tough to shake the heaviness that I feel, to get that grey cloud cover to move away... I feel lost, I feel stuck, I feel worthless...
Inner Voice of Wisdom pipes up, “Whoa – do you realize how far you’ve come on this journey?”
Me, “yah, so what?”
IVofW, “So what? So Ms. SuperHero, take a good look in that mirror... Can you give your Amazing Soul a little smile?”
Me stares at my reflection, smiles a little.
IVofW, “You have risen up to the challenges that life has put on your path, overcome them and surpassed obstacles that others wouldn’t even dare come close to.”
Me pauses a bit and recalls some of these moments (raising four kids solo; returning to school after 40 and graduating with honours; losing everything and rebuilding from scratch and more) and the smile grows.
IVofW, “WooHoo – You are a superhero – you just forgot for a moment”
Me chuckles and the smile is bigger.
IVofW, “You are okay – every day you wake up, you are okay!”
Me smiles and nods.
IVofW, “And you have a full heart!”
Me looks at reflection in the mirror, I blow a kiss.
The birds are singing, the sun is shining and my happiness has returned.
Who I AM...
