Have you ever been in a place where you were trying to put your entire heart into words? You finally get your thoughts and feelings organized to the point where you think you’ve done a fairly decent job of trying to captivate just what you needed to relay. This wasn’t an easy process. It kept you up at night and forced you to feel the weight so strongly that the vulnerability of it all was completely overwhelming. And then it happens.
All of a sudden you come to the realization that none of it really matters.
Now what? How do you put your heart back in place. What can you use to tuck it safely so that it doesn’t feel as if the beating of it is a train going in circles barely on track?
Too many people overvalue what they are not and undervalue what they are. ~Malcolm S. Forbes
I found this quote the other day and it made me think about a few things. Those exact thoughts have disappeared by now but I still wanted to share it here. I feel that it works on some level with this entry. I know that I have overvalued something that I am not or that I have overvalued something that didn’t need to be. I also know that I have certainly undervalued beautiful pieces of me.
In an effort to try to safely tuck my heart into place I decided to remind myself of some qualities I possess.
I am thoughtful, caring, dedicated, and loving.
I am giving, compassionate, hopeful and reflective.
I am reliable, sensitive, and heart warming.
I’m not always courageous but am at times and although I am weak, I am also strong.
I am patient, quiet, gracious and nurturing.
I am a dreamer.
