Friendship

I’ve been pondering friendship lately.  Why I choose the people I choose as my friends, why I continue to call them ‘friends’ when they obviously don’t consider me to be a very important fixture in their lives…

…and I realize that for many years, I did the same, and it wasn’t because I didn’t care for them, but because I either didn’t know how, or that I was lost in my own bubble.  It’s easy to get caught up in your day to day busy-ness that we forget to keep in touch with the people who matter to us, or to stay silent out of fear of rejection.

If you have someone you care about, but haven’t given them the attention that the level of your affection would indicate they deserve… call them.  Text them.  Email them.  Hell… tag them on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.  Let them know they cross your mind.

Today, I called my dad.  Of all the people I love, he is probably the most un-aware of my feelings, due to familial habits of interaction.

Who will you reach out to?

Finally Loving Me (FLM)

Is there peace

inside your soul

or do you lack

what makes you whole?

Inside of me

I have found

a sense of self

and a love profound.

You, also,

may have these gifts:

a soothed soul,

and healed rifts.

Ash will be ash

and dust will be dust-

the Source of all things

lies inside all of us.

A grain of faith,

about a mustard seed will do,

and heaven on Earth

will flow to you.

Don’t take my word

give it a try…

With the right leap of faith

your Spirit will fly.

Love Me

Love me

for cooking for you.

Love me

because I washed your laundry.

Love me

because I brought home a paycheck.

Love me

when the world is out to get me.

Love me

when I’m at my worst.

Love me

even when I’m irritating and unreasonable. 

Love me

because I can’t love myself.

(I) love me

for cooking for you.

(I) love me

because I washed your laundry.

(I) love me

because I brought home a paycheck.

(I) love me

when the world is out to get me.

(I) love me

when I’m at my worst.

(I) love me

even when I’m irritating and unreasonable. 

(I) love me

because if I can’t love myself,

who can?
