Responsibility and ownership of shortcoming are difficult aspects that most struggle with.
Excuses will be made with anything plausible and some will prefer to keep shifting the blame other than shifting the chunk of hubris that denies them the pleasure of seeing themselves in stark reality.
Growth demands that we wake up to the reality of our true selves. It’s until we are honest with ourselves that our new possibilities emerge and we make our dreams come true.
Below is my first just published Poetry Book “Out of the silent breath” which is available on Amazon and Smashwords.
When you buy my book, you support me in an invaluable manner.
I’m halfway through with this book and was compelled to leave a review. I absolutely love this book of poems. My favorites are “Love Rations” (for those who love to give the silent treatment) and “Beggars Supper” (which definitely pulls at the heart strings). Two thumbs up!!
On the day that you wake up Doubting yourself On the day that you wake Wondering if you are doing okay as a parent On the day that you wake up Feeling that you suck at being a mother On the day that you wake up Worrying if you are raising them right On the day you wake up confused Not knowing what the next step should be On the day that you wake up Wanting to cry instead of laugh or smile On the day that you wake up Huddled and not wanting to climb out It takes the lovingly made card Of small hands The painstaking drawing of hearts and kisses Of the warm hug and the beautiful words That sounds like music in your ears ‘Mummy you are the bestest ever!’ ‘I made this for you’ For you to learn, That you are doing well That you are the bestest, despite your shortcomings Those words are the turn key That makes you climb out and wear your smile with joy To flip pancakes with oodles of syrup Sniffing and thanking God for these young arms.
