Positive things I learnt recently

As soon as I read this post, I knew it was one I wanted to keep coming back to. It felt like it was a message ‘just for me’, because it came at the right time to be recognised as being important, even if I can’t take it fully on board right now. I can recognise its importance and its intellectual truth, even if it seems like I’m a long way from feeling the truth of it for myself.

I would like to be able to write this post about myself, in due course. I am not sure how I am going to get there, but through therapy, I hope that I will. I am so pleased for the author of this post that she is coming to these precious realisations. I am excited by her ending – by her ‘to be continued’. I got to the end of her post and had a thirst for more. What other possibilities and realisations lie ahead – for her, and then perhaps for me? What other things do I need to learn and take to heart?

She also has a way of forming words into poetry that I can only dream of and secretly (or not so secretly) envy, as well as admire! Please do check out the rest of her blog, including her ‘Poetry’ category. Her poem ‘The Girl Who Writes‘ from December 2014, still takes my breath away….
