It’s time to be the total sum of who we are. In a nutshell; I grew up  as a minority, overweight, insecure, and painfully shy. I had very low self-esteem and later become a self masochist. I didn’t know how to take care of myself and I sabotaged myself a lot. I can now see how everything was by design. Because of my pain and chaos I had to do a lot of inner work to find myself again. I’m now, how God intended me to be, BRIGHT & WHOLE. That’s how God intends for all of us to be because we are all little sparks of the Great Creator.  As a line in one of my poems goes: “I’m cleansed of the debris that no longer belongs to me.” You see, I was hidden away by debris that I thought was me but it was just hiding the real me. The reason for my sharing is to help chisel away anything that needs  chiseling away for you to shine, be happy, create and be peaceful. Read on and do give feedback if you wish.
