A day to just "be"

Today I took a day to just "be",
to let my feelings
rise to the surface,
bring tears to my eyes,
then subside.

That's so much better
than stuffing them down,
pretending I'm fine,
while really, I'm
dying inside.

Somehow I feel now
I have swept a room clean
inside my heart.
My mind is now free --
there's nothing to hide.

Have I wasted this day?
No, I have energy now
and I don't regret
taking time to just "be"
and bring healing inside.

This is an orginal poem, written today, as I took a day just to "be".
All in all, I think it has been a good investment.

Here I Go!

Well, here I go.....................
Did you hear the splash as I jumped into the world of blogging?

This blog is dedicated to my sister, who told me that "Life begins at 50!" I'm getting close to my life beginning, and I'm starting to get excited!

I've spent most of my life "watching my life happen", and it's time for me to clear away the debris so that I can begin "living my life", one day at a time.

It's time to light a candle, and bring light to my little corner of the world. I hope to share some of that light with you.

What will this blog look like?

I'm not sure..................... but I'm ready to jump in and find out!
