|When the waves close over me, I dive down to fish for pearls.|
When reading the quote above, my first reaction was Yes! and my second thought, (which has served as an obstacle in writing this post ) is what will others think??? how will it come across???
Somehow along the way, my positive outlook and rather more chipper than subdued personality, has lead others (ok a small handful a friend shared) to believe that things are always rosy in my world and more importantly, that I don't validate how they are feeling. When I think about it closely and try to interpret it...they feel, how "I am" doesn't allow room for how they are feeling, which creates their resentment and what I consider a misinterpretation of who I am. The furthest thing from my mind is to not be giving and compassionate. I will so work on conveying that differently for sure.
From the beginning of writing my blog, it has been important to me to keep it genuine of my thoughts...I didn't want today's entry to be an exception. So that is why I shared candidly with you Dear Readers this struggle, which is the result of a recent, eye opening, conversation that has involved a whole lot of soul searching for this Blogging Mama.
There are times in our lives when we need to take a look deep inside and see if we like what we see and where we want to make changes. I feel that my journey is evolving for sure and when aspects of Life feel a bit turbulent, you can be sure I am fishing for pearls....for both me and for you!
** After thought........Feeling that today's post could have gone on a lot longer and probably required more to make complete sense of it all, but it is about the journey we call Life and my wanting to share mine with you, because we are all processing something, ok MANY THINGS and knowing others are processing too provides hope, comfort and that virtual High Five!
