Grateful for Wednesdays

okay

stillness

aloneness

silence

now i only need

to be

with

the wildflowers

the trees

the butterflies

the birds and insects

to be with a deer

carry with me a book

braid my hair

wear me a dress

a jar of fresh water

and just be

There are thousands of things to be grateful for today, and here’s to name a few:

I am grateful for poetry. For being a friend in sadness and in joy and in everything in between.

I am grateful for the brave souls that came before me. Shining their brightest light. Inspiring hearts and souls. Daring greatly everyday. Deliberately living authentically.

I am grateful for the people who cared to notice my writing. However small. It came as a surprise because it is something unknown to me. I am inspired by all of you. Thank you wholeheartedly.

I am grateful for the people who loves me; my family, my love, my friends.

I am grateful for finding peace in solitude.

Okay your turn! Take a minute or more to revel on the things or even just one thing you can be grateful for today. It has a power in it. Go!

Frida

frida

 I used to think

I was the strangest person in the world

but then I thought there are so many people in the world,

there must be someone just like me

who feels bizarre and flawed in the same ways I do.

I would imagine her,

and imagine that she must be out there thinking of me,

too.

Well, I hope that if you are out there and read this

and know that,

yes,

it’s true I’m here,

and I’m just as strange as you.

– Frida Kahlo
