Realistic Expectations : What a wonderful world, anyway

Some realisations today

Important ones

A questions too

Can I expect someone to care for me

If I don’t take care of myself?

Caring for myself

Means finding those that will care for me

It means caring about others

But not to my detriment

It means letting go

When holding on too tight

Is giving me bleeding hands

It means recognising

That some people are wounded and damaged

And its not my task to heal them

But I can still care

And show support when I can

Because that is who I am

It also means not caring sometimes

Disconnecting when I need to

And caring enough

To allow myself to have some fun

Time to laugh

To play

To find joy

To sing

To dance

To celebrate

To love

Time to laugh (again)

And time to cry

It means keeping my heart open when I need to

And shutting the door tight when too much energy has bled out

It means compassion

For me

For you

And the realisation

That even though life is not perfect

It truly is

To quote Louis Armstrong

A wonderful world

"The religious naturalist is provisioned with tales of natural emergence that are, to my mind, far more magical than traditional miracles. Emergence is inherent in everything that is alive, allowing our yearning for supernatural miracles to be subsumed by our joy in the countless miracles that surround us." Ursula Goodenough How to describe oneself? People are a mystery and there is so much more to us than just our particular experiences or occupations. I could write down a list of attributes and they still might not paint a complete picture pf Deborah Louise and in any case it would not be the full truth of me. I would say that my purpose here on Wordpress is to express some of my random experiences, thoughts and feelings, to share about my particular journey and explore some subjects dear to my heart, such as emotional recovery, healing and astrology while posting up some of the prose/poems which are an outgrowth of my labours with life, love and relationships. If anything I write touches you I would be so pleased to hear for the purpose of reaching out and expressung ourselves is hopefully to connect with each other and find where our souls meet.
