Haiku My Heart–Color Me Lime Green


My Lime Green Buddha,

Content where this life puts him.

Color me lime green.


I am continuing to deepen my practice of belonging to myself.

My close to empty bucket wasn’t filled in one day.

But I am finding that this taking care of and loving on yourself stuff

really does feel pretty good.

Winking smile

Happy Friday, Beautiful Ones !

Love on your sweet Selves!

You look beautiful in lime green!

You always learn the valuable lesson...when you give all you've got for something you believe in, you owe it to yourself to treat yourself like the gift of life you are and say "well done, now rest". xo

Nadeja said...

You are brave and true

Is what you need do!!!

Lime green, that brand new growth of spring, finding us where we least expect it at the end of summer, right there in the buddha's smile... May your bucket continue to fill with the sweet water of love Kim.

I read your post from yesterday and see where the depletion comes from. Overproviding. That's what I do a lot of times. A lot of food for thought here and I love the line green Buddha.

Dianne said...

Contemplating your Buddha among the naturals, the works of the hand, the shadows will do the trick of filling your bucket I'm sure. x

I can't get the whole concept of "belonging to myself" out of my brain- I haven't been able to since I first read about it by you. Thank you for opening up a new portal in my soul- I SO needed it. <3
