Haiku My Heart–Being Me

DSC04087

“Just be you.” he said.

How is it we forget that ?

Shiny me, I’ll be.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

It is much easier to be shiny through the computer screen sometimes than it is to be shiny in person.

I am off to my writing retreat. Excited and nervous.

But probably heading into a place where just about everyone feel the same.

Working on letting go of insecurities about wardrobe, and/or having the coolest notebook,

and remembering instead

that this is my experience and I choose what kind of experience I want it to be.

Bringing my bag-o-rocks with me, of course.

They help me to remember who I am.

Shine on, Beautiful Ones, and have a great weekend !

Love haiku like me ? Head over to recuerda mi corazon for a sweet dose of Haiku My Heart Friday.

I've seen you up close and personal and on my computer screen and let me tell you -- you shine on in oh so many ways!!

I'm so thrilled that you are doing this retreat. I was thinking about doing it and then didn't because I talked myself out of it. You? You didn't talk yourself out of it and I'm so glad.

I know you will have an amazing experience with those who are leading the retreat, with those attending and with your pal Susie...shine on ladies...can't wait to hear all about it!! xoxox

Why is it we forget to remember to just be "me"? You would think with the proximity of "me" it would be hard to forget. I'm glad you are having an adventure with your peeps this weekend. We expect a full report on Monday!

Hi Kim, Oh I'm feeling some synchronicity here! I have organised a 'Letting Go Yoga & Art retreat for next weekend, I'm doing the art bit, I'm so nervous even though there are only seven of us!

Let's shine together!
