17 March 2015

I hadn't realized how much I'd been needing to meet someone I might be able to say everything to.   [Elizabeth Berg, Talk Before Sleep]

I’ve learned so much about what I need that I often wonder how I managed BEfore knowing this. And I suppose that explains a LOT of my unhappiness with Life, too. Having someone who I can say EVERYthing to, who doesn’t laugh, roll their eyes, or seem fidgety and impatient, this is NOT something I have really had.

And yet, cancer is teaching me far more about my needs and somedays I can actually see things from an entirely new perspective.

I will come back as a little breeze. You will feel me on your face, and you will know that I am still listening. So you can still talk to me.   [Elizabeth Berg, Talk Before Sleep]

This describes what I think I have always BElieved. A person dies, or mayBE just is disappeared from my Life, [far more common in my experience] and I still feel him or her, just BEyond the shadow round the corner.

Sometimes my writing is my someone. Which I suppose would make YOU my someone by extension. Hmmmmmmm…

Sometimes it seems like a little moment brings a whole world with it.   [Elizabeth Berg, True to Form]

Well said.

I love you, Currie

Saying everything or speaking your truth pretty much anywhere to anybody is what I found to be my best path. There will always be eye-rollers, tsk-tskers, head shakers, condemners, and even attackers...no matter who you are or what you say...or don't say, for that matter. But it weeds out the people who don't think at all like me and wouldn't like me regardless if they got to know me slower, entertains some of the others, takes away ammunition for the backstabbers (if you already told everybody yourself), and reveals the like-minded who--best of all--are like soul family finds. You will never please everybody. And shouldn't. We are all so very different just as much as we might all be the same in so many ways.

Speaking your truth--your everything--is the only way to find yourself...and the people who empathize, understand, hear you, and can say their everything to you, too. Kudos!! :):)

Rita has pretty much already said it all. I find that people either love me or hate me and not a lot of in between. I'm open and upfront right off the bat and what you see is what you get. The friends I do make are usually there for life. It keeps it simple and true.
Sending you Love & Strength and HEALING OF SPIRIT.
