Why can’t things be how they were, when they were great – or were we blissfully unaware of how ungreat they were? But they’re the moments, in all their ungreatness, that are so wonderful in retrospect.
To expose myself and let them see
Would be the end of me.
The multicolored mess inside
Would confuse them.
They would run and hide.
They would not understand.
One is there with an open hand.
The I Am.
I do not deserve thee.
I am nothing like the tree
That I should be;
Standing tall and ever growing
But I am me
And He is pleased.
I don’t own a horse, I own a mule and he is every bit of it. Stubborn and smart as a whip, he challenges my endurance and ferocity. Some days, my body doesn’t abide by what my brain says but he’s pretty patient. Leading him around is great because he pays attention to my pace, however, he likes to lean in to me, and has stepped on my foot. That never feels too great. I’m glad I got him because his demeanor is sweet and he is ornery as all get out. Jasper is my little buddy and I’m excited to see what all we accomplish together.
Reading takes us to places when we have to stay where we are.
This quote resonated with me in so many ways and made me realize how much I escape reality. Makes sense because I am a Pisces. We Pisceans live in a fantasy world and are always stuck inside of our own minds. I use reading as an escape from my own mind because I am crazy.
I’m moody, quick to be angry at someone for the smallest thing, and quick to forgive. What a great combination! Not!
I love the pieces of me that come directly from my mother and father but, sometimes, they war with each other and I can’t figure myself out.
Reading helps me see pieces of myself that need to become larger pieces in various characters. For example, Elizabeth Bennett from Pride and Prejudice. She is one of my absolute favorite characters. She keeps her mouth shut but stands up for herself when necessary. I stand up for myself way more than necessary and portray myself in a negative fashion. That needs to stop.
