You may not know this about me…
I write poetry.
Poems seem to come through me when I travel. Several years ago, I was at a retreat in Mexico called Sacred Sensual Splendour.
I didn’t have my kids with me, or my husband. There was almost no wi-fi, so I didn’t go on my cell phone. We were given hours of free time every day. There was gloriously little to do.
And as I journalled, poems started to appear on the page.
Up until now, they’ve been quietly hiding in that journal, but today is a big day! One of them is going to get out into the open, right here.
If you could, please imagine throwing a little confetti and hearing a party horn blow in honour of this poem’s first release.
(I was shocked when I read it over to see that it’s about self-care. i guess part of me knew long ago that Courageous Self-Care was in my future!)
I Am a Bridge
I am a bridge between earth and sky.
I am a container. I am grounded.
I choose to contain my strength and keep it for me.
In my strong container, my boundaries are clear.
When my boundaries are clear, I nurture and am nurtured.
I honour myself by taking care of me.
A bridge is strong.
I am the bridge between self-care and care for others.
It’s not a choice between the two.
I am a bridge. Both sides are important.
There is love on both sides.
I am a Bridge.
