It’s Okay To Feel Vulnerable
One of my coping mechanisms for releasing frustrations is to write poetry from my heart and soul. This next poem was created at a time when I was feeling a little stressed out and frustrated with myself and I know we’ve all been there, sometimes too often!! The purpose of me sharing this with you is because I feel through my own creative self-expression, there is much encouragement, support and positivity shining through, which may help you if you’re going through a similar experience right now. I want you to know that it is okay to feel vulnerable at times, actually, I believe now that showing vulnerability is often a real strength of integrity and authenticity. Give yourself permission to be who you really are, silence the overwhelmed mind and follow your heart. May you take comfort and courage from the following verse. Much love to you, Clarabelle.
Follow Your Heart
I feel frustrated, but no one knows;
How up and down I feel, but on the inside it shows.
So I take a time out, it’s time to express;
These random thoughts, are a bit of a mess.
But my mind feels strong, I prepared for it well;
The stresses keep coming, but I’m not in hell.
There is one part in balance, so I never fall;
Even though the ground is shaky, I’m walking tall.
I believe that this, pain will go;
I’ve built up an inner resistance, no matter what life does throw.
It’s teaching me something, and breaking old rules;
Changing me for the better, giving me new tools.
So I can mend, myself for good;
Uplifting my spirits, brightening my mood.
So when life gets you down, as it sometimes will;
You can create the way out – minus the pill.
Shine from within, follow your heart;
Your new life is waiting, soon you’ll never be apart.
