My Gifts

I am enough
I am good enough
I was made that way

I honour my maker
I use my gifts
however they

Qualifier ~>
An amount of self sabotage, not good enough has been circulating lately,
I suppose we all get a dose from time to time! It is appropriate then and helpful for me to remember ~
all that I am is not of my own making, that what I offer has been gifted to me in the first place.
My unique ~ I just keep building upon that base!

Sometimes that`s a tall believe we are good enough when that monkey brain keeps trying to tell us differently.

Thank you for the gentle reminder
Sue - this is so true for so many of us - getting the message in childhood and society of not being "good enough" - and *believing* it - comparing ourselves to others, needing to be validated for what we do and who we are, and how we express that. And yes, you/we *are* wonderfully "made" :) - a unique expression of the Divine, loved beyond measure. So how can we ever not be "good enough!" :) I have to keep reminding myself of this all the time when the "not good enough" phantom comes knocking. :)

Christine, exactly! I had forgotten about all of those school reports ~ "day dreamer, does not try hard enough". Thank you for reminding me.

Sue, I needed to read that... I think I am walking that path myself...

dear sue,
i was just thinking about mosaics and how they are glorious, vibrant and delight the soul. one reason, i believe, is that they honor all the fragments, the broken bits and pieces of life. by embracing ALL the parts of ourselves, our life experience, and reassembling them in love, forgiveness and acceptance we become more beautiful in our wholeness. every part of us is essential. the dark makes the light brighter, sorrow becomes a deeper well for happiness, acceptance teaches us compassion for self and others.
holding you in love and light.
i am so grateful for your place in my heart.

Happy Haiku New Year

Bare winter branches bathed in mystical moonshine stirring some magic!

Hello and a Happy New Year to you and yours...

I feel like a stranger to this online space it being nearly two months since I last tapped the keys here. I've been living a kind of nomadic existence recently flitting between houses with the addition of my new little tin home that perches on a Welsh hillside overlooking the ocean. What with Christmas and New Year I have been sleeping in random beds! The acquisition of my tin home is something I have dreamed about for ages and now it has come to pass so I've been bathing in ocean magic....

Something else that has kept me creatively occupied lately is my regular postings on Instagram, I have taken to posting haiku and images there as a meditative practice which satisfies both my need to create and also to focus, I have set the intention to continue this practice for 2017 and also to research the subject, perhaps write about my findings here as I believe this art-…

Stepping out Sunday
though nation is mourning, we
put best foot forward...

Today before posting my daily haiku on Instagram I was shocked to learn of yet another terror attack in the capital city London, 7 slaughtered and 48 injured, this only days after the Manchester killings. At the very moment I was viewing this on-line a pigeon, in flight, slammed into my window causing me to feel a sudden fear, heightening the fear- feeling for those innocent people... Later the prime-minister Theresa May declared on a news bulletin that "enough is enough" and that new measures must be taken to counter this....  As she counted out four ways these measures must take place I was feeling a sense of frustration that no doubt countless millions of others must feel in the face of these senseless acts of violence. I was thinking what can I as one person do? 
My small act of posting one image on Instagram with the above haiku seemed so insignificant and I felt the message of "stepping out r…

Snuggling up till spring...

Comfy and cosy
feeling all loved up in the
comfort of haiku...

Just a quick line this week but thought I'd mention 'Doris' the storm that hit our shores.  On our walk through the church yard this morning there was quite a bit of damage, mainly to the trees up-rooting one altogether so that's why my Jasper and me are snuggling up till spring...

Happy weekend all haiku lovers...
