I hope this message finds you well. Happy Thanksgiving! Take a moment and reflect on your journey in this life..........deep breath.......... be immensely proud of yourself at this very moment. Perhaps you're riding out a storm or have survived it...stand confident and know that at every phase in your life you are everything you have always wanted to be. Even if you don't think so. Believe it! You are perfection!
the mist, a glorious tease
I imagined myself enjoying this glass,
Sip by sip
Admiring all the qualities
I have been told it would taste better by age
10 years later, I take a drink
Only to find out my suspicions where true
Somehow in the course of the 10 years, the cork was disintegrating
Exposing the true essence
But I had already poured myself a glass
I had already took a sip
The self deception
I should have thrown it out years ago
But I kept it
Hanging on to the foolish belief that my loving intentions would override my suspicions
My self deception is exposed
I will embrace the beauty and take responsibility for my own desires
With that, you are no longer desirable.

For those of you who know me, I don't prefer to drink alcohol. I have forced myself to drink "the occasional beverage" for social reasons. Truth be told, I will no longer force myself to drink alcohol. For those of you who have caught on, my poem may not be about wine.
Just like you, I have experiences that bring me to my knees and I am forced to reevaluate myself and my environment. That is okay! It's all apart of the currency of this beautiful universe. The constant thing in life is change. Change is growth. Growth is wisdom. Wisdom is unconditional love. Share your wisdom....your unconditional love. Even if your heart aches, feeling lonely, sad or upset. At any dark corner of your life, you are the light for someone.
Many Blessings to you all. Happy Thanksgiving! I am so grateful for you all.
