Lesson for the day

Here it is, Wednesday.  Know what I like about Wednesday?  It is in the middle.  I like middle.  It seems safe.  I like balance.  When my life is out of balance, I feel distorted, like I am not really me.  I know my ‘”status” does not define who I am or what I am capable of; but I sure like “in a relationship”.  It seems safe and balanced.  Now that my relationship has been broken, I need to find a new spot on the scale – looking for balance.  That spot will be my space and only mine.  No one, ever again, will take it away or make it unbearable.  I know it is important to love myself and be comfortable with who I am – right now, at this time, in this space.  That, I think, is the most important step.  As always, it begins with me.  Healing, moving forward, making my space, achieving my goals – my responsibility.  I accept this.  That is an important step too.  No one can “fix” me.  Only I can do that.  It may mean a new way of thinking and doing, but I am capable.  Change is always challenging, but it is also growth.  I am ready to grow.  Anyone else with me?


One thought on “Lesson for the day

  1. Some say love, it is a river
    That drowns the tender reed
    Some say love, it is a razor
    That leaves your soul to bleed
    Some say love, it is a hunger
    An endless aching need
    I say love, it is a flower
    And you, its only seed

    It’s the heart, afraid of breaking
    That never learns to dance
    It’s the dream, afraid of waking
    That never takes the chance
    It’s the one who won’t be taken
    Who cannot seem to give
    And the soul, afraid of dying
    That never learns to live

    When the night has been too lonely
    And the road has been too long
    And you think that love is only
    for the lucky and the strong
    Just remember in the winter
    Far beneath the bitter snow
    Lies the seed
    That with the sun’s love, in the spring
    Becomes the rose
