I'm Done With Fixing



I love the desert in which I live.
I love the way it goes through the four seasons with such subtlety.
You have to really look close--not just feel the temperature.

Much like the language of our heart.
We can't just feel the emotion--we have to look deeper at what is being communicated.

Intuition.  Innate wisdom.
Our truth.

Lately, I've been in the greatest of awe of the landscape of my heart.
How wide and vast it truly is.
I feel like I've been broken open
and then broken open again
And the light of everything good is shining inside me.

I made a decision yesterday, as I drove through the desert with my little one.

I decided that I no longer need fixing.
That there is no better version of me that I can achieve.

I do no good to anyone
(including myself)
if I think I'm less than perfect
right here-
right now.

I only offend my Creator
when I keep striving for a better tomorrow.

And rob myself of truly living
if I think my destiny is out there waiting for my arrival.

this line: "I only offend my Creator when I keep striving for a better tomorrow." i feel as though you've dipped into a truth that is so hard for many to swallow. myself included, at times. we are so driven to do do do, we forget that the greatest acts of honor and reverence and change flow effortlessly when we just Be with the gift of our lives and our self, non-judging non-manipulating, choosing joy and love as our compasses. thanks for this today.

If we all accepted our perfection what a beautiful world this would be.

Lovely poem, one I'm sure I'll steer others to. Thank you!

This is very very inspiring ! I am going to have to put it up somewhere I will see it daily. Absolutely in love and your whole site is incredible! As an author and self-made business owner, I am always on the "lookout" for the right site, the right images, and the right inspiration. I believe words should never be meaningless and the best thing I can tell others through my work: It's a bad day/moment/night; NOT a bad LIFE. I have so much more I can share with you and even others, just let me know what you would like for me to do, if you feel so moved.

Bright Blessings,

Connie,

We haven't talked in a while, but I was led here by a link shared by Lisa Wilson. I clicked on this because the title was irresistible.

I cannot tell you how much I needed this post right now.

Thank you, and blessings to you and your family.
