Emotions and Evaluating

I have been doing some major "spring cleaning" in my life and I'm talking more than just clothes that I don't wear anymore. I have been in the process of letting go of old habits, mindsets and even evaluating my relationships to see if I have "outgrown" any of them...So much is going on in my life right now and I feel that if I can just free up some extra space, I can allow myself to make room for things that will begin to enrich my soul and my life undoubtedly. My emotions have not been so haywire because I am learning how to express myself in healthier ways...A book that I am just about finished reading titled: "Living Beyond Your Feelings" by Joyce Meyer has been a real anchor for me. I say that mostly because I really did have issues with how to express my emotions in a healthier way. Especially anger and sadness...which I have experienced in many ways recently. I am also learning how to forgive, not that I didn't know how to before, but I have begun to embrace it for what it is. Forgiveness is like strength to my soul and each time I forgive, I become stronger.

Ode to the moon

"I can see the full moon tonight, shining with so much intensity...forcing me to search inside my soul for answers to my innermost's energy awakens me and my very being...leading me to what I'm needing to guide me through this pivotal time when I'm so connected to the moon's fullness"...
The words in this poem are a tribute to the power of the full moon and how it impresses upon us as women. Our cycles are in sync with the moon and it's waxing and waning periods. Magnified; the moon even resembles an egg, just like the single egg we release every month during ovulation. I take time just to gaze out my window at the moon, especially when it is full, I can't help but to be mesmerized by it. How perfectly round and full the moon is, and I take time to reflect on the previous month and what guidance I may receive for the coming month.
The moon looks upon many night flowers; the night flowers see but one moon. ~ Jean Ingelow
