This is profound and thoughtful... So very truthful Renn... :)
dear, dear renn,what a huge truth in that little, charming poem. it's so true, and it's a good reminder to keep faith for ourselves that we are doing the best that we are able - with so much on our plates. we may have our moments of feeling inadequate, wishing we didn't have to feel the disappointment others project onto us, and wanting so desperately to wear the full array of hats that pronounce us able and willing to be so many things to a lot of people. i'm beginning to understand that though I can't always rise to expectations placed upon me by myself and others,that I need to set more doable priorities, stop giving a rat's ass about how others see me, and realize that I am striving to be a good citizen of the universe, and that by honing in on what I CAN do and deriving my own pats on the back, I feel more peaceful. thanks for sharing that lovely and inspirational poem!love and light, XOXOKaren,TC
Thanks for writing, Karen. It's really like the old adage, don't judge a book by its cover. If ever a truth was more applicable, it was in reference to cancer patients! We may look one way on the outside, but 9 times outta 10, we are feeling a completely different way on the inside!
thanks, dear friend!
What matters most is how we see ourselves, don't you think? I wonder why it's so hard to stop caring so much about how others do or do not see us...
