Meeting Myself

Updated on July 9, 2017

For the first time

I have met myself

After a long period

Of struggle

And disconnect

I finally stepped

Into me

I accepted all of

My past

All of my flaws

All of the

Could have beens

And just saw myself

Raw and exposed

In all of my

Imperfect beauty

I saw the little

Afraid girl

Who didn't

Want to see

The truth

Who feared

Life itself

Who believed

That she couldn't

Do it

I embraced her

Fully

Into this new way

Of being

This was a beginning

For me

For my soul to grow

To become who

I was meant to be

All along

I challenge you

To do the same

      I went back and edited two books, and both are ready for print. Several others are in the final edit stage, and I started another yesterday outlined to the end in my mind, though we never know where the characters might take us until it is all down in final form. I am somewhat hurrying due to my late start in life, but life may not have reached its final form either. Best wishes, Demas

      Finding oneself is a truly wonderful gift. So happy for you.

      Having similar experiences in the past, likely to find myself in this repetitive cycle...losing oneself and finding myself anew.

      Beautifully written Caroline Marie!

      Nice poetic thoughts. Once in awhile we need to look deeper into ourselves.

      Hi Demas,

      My column is going well, but I am putting more focus on design right now. How are you doing in your writing? I read that you are writing a book? How interesting!
