My creativity is my contribution to the world. Creative ideas, art, music, poetry. It all matters to the world, and I consider myself fortunate that I can stir the creativity pot.
Quiet. Quiet is sufficient in my life. It is plentiful, and I am grateful.
My yard. My back yard. The lushness of this Spring. The sounds – birds, birds, birds, chirp chirp chirp. I have this and it is sufficient. My health may be poor, but I have this. And soon, soon I will feel better.
I find playfulness with my grandchildren. Little ones sure know how to play and create adventures!
I’m still learning to accept my restless leg syndrome condition, to be brave about it, to continue on and to reach out to help others. Yes, this is how I’ve grown.
If I am more tender toward myself, that will enable me to be more tender toward those I encounter today.
The small change that would make the rest of my life my best life? To be gentle with myself.
I’m a real rabblerouser. I don’t like it that I am, but I am. I’m a real pain in the ass! And rabblerousers just constantly look for authenticity and tries to guide others toward it. Well, at least that’s what my particular brand of rabblerouserness is like.

So it’s me. For me, I am the one who inspired myself to live my most authentic life. I wrassled and fought my way out of an abusive marriage, I pushed and birthed myself out of a stifling childhood that didn’t recognize my authenticity… I am grateful to myself for where I am now.

So today I am going out to buy 1 or 2 new outfits. This is my way of treating myself and of being gentle with myself, to bring home something that will make me feel just a little bit more emotionally comfortable, which will enhance my feeling of aliveness.
The best I can do right now is to take care of myself, my health, my home. It’s the best I can do. I’m kind to others and loving to my grandchildren, that’s the best I can do.
That I’m stronger than I know.
These are so very beautiful! Just love each of them. Thank you for such a sweet gift!
What a beautiful tale, it filled my heart with joy!
