Love is a lesson in caring, compassion selflessness and also self-care.
Optimism is a buoyant force that we must all share.
Valuing one emotion over another is not healthy for you
Every emotion has value, it’s true!
Recognizing all feelings is
Optimal self care
Owning all sensations
Truth and Despair
Seeing Light even in Darkness.
Growing and learning day by day
Realizing that relationships take work not just play!
Our relationships give life meaning and hope
Without them we be would not be able to cope
Tough times draw us together in love
Heavenly relationships sent from above
Over time, we would love each other, and I would learn to love her like a mother loves a daughter imperfectly and without roots.
Acrostic poem by Ingrid Exner, Half Marathon, 2020 and above line from book reading.
