Feeling unloved? 

the parts of us that are the

darkest and most rank,

are the parts that

need the love most.

just as the crops in the field

thirst for water; the elixir of life,

needing it to grow and thrive,

those darkest, thirstiest, nastiest

parts of us need to be

showered with love.

like a little girl

crying out at night,

longing to be held and loved,

if we would but listen,

following the source of the cries

and comforting the child within,

instead of stifling her fears or

instead of turning a deaf ear;

pretending we don’t hear,

imagine how much more we

could accomplish here,

when our energy is

directed towards expression,

instead of suppression.

Love thyself, please,

you’re much nicer

to everyone else

that way.


Did you know that “failure to thrive” is a medical term?

It is a condition that can occur in babies and young children who cannot gain weight or grow. In the absence of a medical condition, environmental factors are indicated as the cause (ie abuse and neglect or severe malnutrition).

Writing out my thoughts has helped me to gain a new perspective of myself. In sharing these writings, it is my hope to help others to better understand themselves. It is my belief that with each of us who chooses this path of greater understanding of thy self, that it inspires others to do the same. This building momentum is the force that drives me to share, for in my vulnerability, I find my strength. I believe that you can also find yours there. ~~~In reading some of my posts, you will see that growth is not always pretty. It is in breaking apart and coming undone that a seed sprouts and breaks free of its own captivity. It is also out of mud that the lotus blossoms. ~~~Please join me in seeing the beauty of growth within the deconstruction of our limiting beliefs. ~~T.C.
