Space between

Tracy Chapman sang about “the space between”
What’s in there?

Imagination
Things we hold as true
Past memories
Odd feelings

We feel the need to fill in
As emptiness is quite frightening
A place where shadows are walking barefoot
Unafraid of the turmoil inside

What’s in there is just
Time trying to catch up time
So we can move on
Without losing our minds

About time…

We hoped
And flew

Away with the sun
Reaching high
Chasing blue skies

Finding solace
In the arms of a lifelong
Dream

Words come when I don’t expect them to show up. If I can’t catch them, I let them go. Or I find myself in a place of struggle. I don’t need more these days. I got enough on my plate. Some will say it’s all about being hypersensitive. Maybe. For me, it’s about digesting life events and news that don’t make sense to me. It’s about healing. And healing takes time…

 

 

Inside my head

I am watching you

Don’t faint

Don’t cry

Don’t show me your scars

Be brave

Be strong

Fit in the world that I shaped

Don’t try to be different

Or you’ll fail…

*

I don’t care what you see

I often fall into pieces

I often let tears flow

My scars are the victories I cannot hide

I know when to be brave

How to be strong

I won’t fit in to please you

I am unique

I will succeed…

Great Words – Hard Practice

I started 2012 with great words in mind:
 
SURRENDER                                       HUMILITY                                                        LET GO
                    PATIENCE                                                                             LET IT BE
                                                LOVE                                    FAITH
STILL YOUR MIND                            PAUSE/REST                  NOURISH YOUR SOUL
 
Great ideas at the start of a new year. Nine months later I still struggle with most of them. But it’s never too late to start, so slowly I try to LET GO of any thoughts that don’t serve me, of any idea that hurt me, of any worries that darken my days. It’s a daily job that requires lots of practice. I fail miserably some days, sometime I fail every single day of the week. But is this the most important?
 
I don’t think so. I think the most important is to recognize it and change things, right at the moment I know I am on the wrong road. There is no space for regrets in this daily practice, no place for maybe or maybe not. There is no time better than NOW to make things work, to improve.
 
So I keep going with these words in my mind, I take the risk to fail and the risk to win a battle too. And I make sure to celebrate every single struggle, even the tiniest one because without this one I will never progress.
And you, tell me which words you have a hard time with? And how you handle it?
