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….

  1. Thank you so, so much for reblogging this! And thank you for all of the lovely things you wrote! I cannot say enough how touched I am. 🙂 ! xxx


    • That’s not a problem – and you deserve them 🙂 It’s a privilege to read your writings and follow your journey – your writing always connects with me. I think you once said something about my writing being ‘philosophical’ – as indeed is yours (as well as being honest, real and insightful), and your poetry is inspiring. It may be a strange thing to say but I have a feeling that if we ever met we would have no shortage of topics to talk about! Take care 🙂 xxx
