Contemplating Renewal

October 4, 2023

Good morning lovelies.

I Love this poem from s.c lourie. It speaks to where I’ve been of late. The emotions have been quite heavy as I am continuing this journey of self-discovery and self-love. It’s been like the peeling of an onion. Layers upon layers you continue to discover about yourself. Getting to the core comes with tears, stillness, revelation and times of rest…then renewal. Love S❤️

I started calling that girl back. The girl who loved living,

the girl who danced

instead of walking. The girl who had sunflowers for eyes

and fireworks in her soul.

I started playing music again,

hoping she would come out.

I started looking for beautiful

moments to experience, so she would feel safe enough to show herself,

because I knew

she was in there

And she needed my kindness

and my effort

to come to the surface again.
