Living Fully

Old Tree, Vancouver Island, KPI am so tired of people telling me to live on the surface of life.

Telling me how to be happy; how to get along.

I don’t want to whitewash my life; hide the feelings that broil inside.

I want to acknowledge them; explore them, express them!

I want to move through them; make peace with them!

I don’t want to live with blinders; pushing down all that is hard; denying all that is painful.

I want to live fully; eyes open, mind free, heart unguarded.

I want to feel seen and met.

About kp

I am a woman and a mother, a sister and a wife. I have called myself a socialist and a feminist, an environmentalist and an activist, a pagan and an atheist. But, at this stage in my life, none of these labels feel right. I am searching; trying to find an inner calm; trying to make peace with life's disappointments; trying to answer the big questions in my own small life.

    I love your honesty. I think it’s so easy, especially on social media, but also in our day to day interactions with friends, to present the white washed version of our lives. I like that you don’t do that.

  4. Excellent, and I am sure you will, Keep being true to YOU… and live your life not as others would wish. but full-fill your dreams for you..xxx
