IT HAS BEEN OVER A YEAR SINCE I WROTE A BLOG!!

Saturday, December 21, 2013

OH MY, I JUST NOTICED THAT THE LAST BLOG I WROTE WAS DATED 11/11/12! WOW! TIME SEEMS TO HAVE BEEN AT WARP SPEED!

WELL, MY MESSAGE TODAY IS ABOUT FLAWS AND YOUR "DARK SIDE". KELLY CLARKSON HAS A GREAT SONG ON HER MOST RECENT CD CALLED "DARK SIDE" WHERE SHE ASKS "WILL YOU STILL LOVE ME WITH MY DARK SIDE"? I THINK THIS IS A UNIVERSAL FEAR WHICH WE ALL EXPERIENCE. FIRST, A FEAR OF LOOKING AT OUR OWN "DARK SIDE" AND THEN THE PROCESS OF DECIDING WHETHER TO UNCOVER YOUR FLAWS OR NOT AND HAVE THE COURAGE TO LIVE WITH THEM AND EMBRACE THEM. THERE IS A SENSE OF RELIEF AND PERSONAL FREEDOM WHEN WE RELEASE THE NEED TO HIDE A PART OF OURSELVES. MAY YOU HAVE THE COURAGE TO ACCEPT YOURSELF AS YOU ARE AND EMBRACE ALL OF YOU, FLAWS AND ALL. BRING IN THE NEW YEAR WITH COURAGE AND LOVE YOURSELF, ALL OF YOURSELF.

    MARY, HOW TRUE THAT IS. A LONG, LONG TIME AGO I REMEMBER HAVING THIS CONVERSATION WITH A FRIEND ABOUT JOHN. WE HAVE BOTH LIVED ALONE FOR A LONG TIME SO THERE ARE DAYS WHEN WE BECOME SELFISH - BOTH OF US. I MUST HAVE BEEN COMPLAINING ABOUT SOMETHING HE DID, AND SHE WAS ADVISING ME TO SPLIT FROM HIM. I REMEMBER TELLING HER THAT WHEN WE LOVE SOMEONE TRULY, THOUGH THEIR FLAWS MIGHT BE ANNOYING, WE HAVE TO LOVE THOSE FLAWS AS WELL. THEY ARE PART OF THE PERSON WE LOVE.

    THANK YOU FOR MAKING ME REALIZE THAT PRINCIPLE HOLDS TRUE WHEN I'M LOVING ME.

    MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU! BTW, I'LL BE HERE AS WELL ON CHRISTMAS DAY, THOUGH WE DO GO TO OUR RESPECTIVE COUSINS' HOMES, MY FIRST STOP IS ALWAYS AT OUR TEAM PAGE!

    HUGS.
