No beginning and no end

sucky vulnerability.
feeling raw.
so in love with people.
so needing to be alone.
thrilled with life's possibilities.
wanting to hide under the covers.
bored silly.
mind racing with ideas and directions.
content with who I am.
wishing I were so different.
passion for authenticity.
critical scrutiny of my own reflection.
wanting to feel better.
suspecting its not a feeling.
quite sure another human doesn't hold the answer.
tired of reading their books.
in love with diversity.
frightened of it all.

You stole my thoughts and articulated them so much better.

If it's not a feeling, do you have any idea of what it really is then?

Nice thoughts Joyce. Keep it up.

"tired of reading their books"

Yeah, this is what I've been thinking about a lot lately.
At some point "it" has to come from within ourselves. We have to be kind enough to ourselves to allow this to happen in its own time.

It can be frightening, indeed.
Thanks Joyce.
