I recently started to follow her…. The Haunted Wordsmith. Thank you for nominating me. I am coming to the third day and this will be it. (Insert pouty face lol)
The rules are simple:
- Thank the person who nominated you.
- Post a quote for three consecutive days.
- Nominate three bloggers each day.
I realized today that I am at peace within myself. I no longer care how people judge me. I no longer care if people think my laugh is too loud. I say inappropriate things at the wrong times because my filter does not always work. And that is okay.
I love me. All of me. With all my heart. And in doing so I have freed myself.
When I look in the mirror
I do not see
that others find in me.
When they wax eloquently
to explain the way my smile brightens
and my eyes sparkle with laughter;
all I can see are over large teeth
and the wrinkles that cover my face.
I do not see the wonder and joy
I cannot comprehend the whys of it all.
I do not know what draws them within
and keeps them close to my bones.
I stare deeply into the mirror
still unable to see
why they are called to me.
