Weekend Reflections

The word 'Reflect' or "Reflection' always seems to be loaded with the infinite.

I've been reflecting on many things these last several months not least what it means to be me at this point in time and what i want going into an uncertain future.

I'm learning to use new words for myself such as fragile, gentle, caring; replacing worn out words like hard, cold and strong.

This image captures what i am so hopeless at saying in words, that there are many versions of ourselves depending on who's looking and from what angle. What really matters is that we aren't our own 'elephant in the room'. Recognising the things you don't like or that others find difficult about you is just part of the process of laying your demons to rest. The more honest you can be with yourself and others around you the fewer skeletons to dance with.


For other reflections please use the below link to go to James for this weeks 'Weekend Reflections'.

Great reflections and the thoughts about "elephants in the room" are well-expressed. Welcome to the "reflections" meme.

Oh, I should have added that talent and creativity seem to run in families. I have 5 sisters who would want to agree with that!
