The weekend reminded me that I am vulnerable, that I have hurts, guilt and anger from long ago that had not been directly expressed. I surprised the heck out of myself in the power of my emotions, especially my rage.
I am looking at myself differently, more kindly than I have in a very long time. I actually looked at myself in the mirror a few days after I got home and said…” Maria, I love you”. I smile at myself. I feel more comfortable with myself. I firmly believe that anything you do for yourself enriches what you bring to others, either personally or professionally. I think others in my life know it is safe to be vulnerable with me.
