The Sunny Side

Today is purportedly the first day of spring...and it's raining, for a change.

Today is also the first day of the rest of my life, as it is for everyone else.
I've decided to start my life over, to begin again from right where I am.

That old script ~ the one where all I see everywhere is limitation, the one where the options appear to be few, the one that says "This is who I am and this is the way it has to be," was never my script to begin with.  I didn't write it.  I'm not directing it any longer.

Everything (well, many things) with me has always been heavy, portentous, serious, laden with shit (fear, shame, guilt, yada yada yada).

Enough with that.  I've got the rest of my life to live.  I've had more than a lifetime's fill of psyching myself out.  I just want to live the rest of my life in peace, and be who I am without constantly apologizing for myself needlessly.

This is who I am ~ a great person, talented, creative, smart, intelligent, competent, productive and compassionate, with a good heart.  I'm authentic, I'm sensitive, I always work to my best ability, and I try to do the right thing always.  What more do I need?

Connie...You are that and ever so much more. Keep creating, making, expressing the art that just flows through you...each piece you post is, always, telling a story and well executed. The choosing of what to put where is a natural for you. I enjoy reading your words and seeing your work, every post. And, I treasure the friend that you are to me.

I agree...you are all those things and more Connie. I would add a good sense of humor too!
