Day 356 - Lighten Me
To recover the Child in me
To forgive the Parent in me
To remember the Divine in me
Once upon a time, my nickname was Sunshine. If you knew me then, you would agree. Anyone who knows me now, wouldn't. Now, they call me Grim.
People who haven't seen me in years tell me how much I've changed, that I look tired, or they avoid me. That's alright for them. They have the right to react. They have the right to fear what they don't understand.
It's not alright for me, though. I deserve better than I've given myself; I deserve to be Sunshine once again and to dance and delight my friends as once I did.
And that is what this writing is all about. It's a means to an end.
In the end, whenever that may be, I want people to remember all of me, the light and the dark and the writer to my truths. I want to be the light that illumens the pages I write, the struggles and the lives and the Child, Parent and Lover of the Divine.
