Flawed? Why not.
This is where I will share my biggest mistake of the week. With the intention to show others that mistakes happen to all of us. We are flawed and learn as we go along. But also we can learn from or mistakes . We can own them.
Maybe it’s not following through with something you wished you had or maybe it was doing too much. Not making that call or making the call before you took the time to calm down. Maybe it was believing that telephone marketer and giving out information you wished you hadn’t. Maybe it was losing your wallet or your child (temporarily). Maybe for not eating well and on and on it goes.
You are never alone. We all make mistakes.
This version of the world that we are witnessing is not real. You’re just seeing where the camera points to. And that my dear may involve several out takes that will never see the light of day. Perfect lighting to highlight only the best. A team of magicians that create hypnotizing beauty from hair, make-up and edits beyond human recognition.
Allow your eyes to feast on a miracle instead. See the true beauty beyond the shadows, behind the barricades so perfectly placed to hide the past stories.
My dear look into a mirror and look into those eyes. Go beyond the tiredness you’ll first notice. Yes, they are tired- they are tired of hiding and viewing all the is fake shit. Look deeper into those eyes and stay there. Remain calm, take a deep breath..stay focused. That, there you’re feeling is the forgotten parts of you; who were too little. From a time when you didn’t know any better, it’s was when you didn’t have the words, the language you never knew. You couldn’t get away, you didn’t stop, when you were too afraid. The time you felt alone, you didn’t know.You just didn’t know. And that’s OK. Look into those eyes and see that person. Everything you’re going through, everything you’ve ever gone through is to get your attention to see that part of you.
Instead you keep looking at all those other people and you’re desperate for them to see you. However my dear, it’ll never be enough, they can’t because they don’t see themselves. We all have to see ourselves. It’s within those eyes that we must hear the whispers. “I love you and I see you.”You are now the grown up to that little child who wanted to be seen. Do you see me? Is the question falling in the tears.
In case you can’t right now…hear me say. I love you and I see you.
Flawed? Why not.
