Day 17,561 Gratitude: That Kind of Girl
Artistically, I have my hands in (and on) many things, but mine is a writer's heart. I need to play with words in the way I play with images, color, textures and energy. This is why I love my daily haiku practice (#myku) which I often post to Twitter. The dance of syllables ... 5/7/5 ... that some days serve as a snapshot story and other days food for thought. Join me!
And, by the way, I really am that kind of girl. It's taken me decades to understand this about myself. At first it felt like a flaw to be so careful and cautious. How many opportunities have I missed because of it? Now I am discovering it to be a superpower because I can finally see it for what it is. Discernment. Sure, I would love to be more spontaneous ... perhaps even impetuous once in awhile ... swept up in a passionate wave of YES. But, hey, I'm that girl. Hanging back. Waiting. And worth it.
For this I am so grateful.
