little tender heart
I will comfort you because
you sing so sweetly
Yesterday I read an interview with Kim Mailhot at
The interview was all so good,
but when she talked about 'Big-Heart Walking'
I felt so connected...
just this past week, I realized that being giving and generous
is who I am,
but there are times when I don't feel appreciated
or that my good-will was not passed on...
some people just take, take, take.
And if I continue giving to them,
I start to feel badly about it.
I will continue to give and share because it brings me joy...
but when it doesn't feel good to me and my spirit,
I won't. And I will not feel bad about saying no.
Taking care of your own spirit is the best thing you can do
for anyone...for the whole world.
It really is the reason for living.
If you haven't read the interview, you can find it here.
It is so encouraging for me to find my friends on the same path,
it means I am not lost.
