Ending Spring Break and Celebrating!

Thank you to Ruth for this amazing community to share our celebrations!
April is poetry month. This month I will be crafting and sharing original poems. Often, these poems will be messy and early drafts. Many of us are sharing our poems on twitter using the hashtag, #digipoetry. We hope you join us!
I love spring break. I loved this spring break. Staying home was the perfect choice for me. Lots got accomplished. There was lots of reflection. Reflecting on where I am, where I've been and where I'd like to go. Here are some no particular order... I like discovering new places on my own. Moving more feels better every day I do it. 
FitBit report for the week. 
Forgive myself. Always be kind (forgive myself when I fail here). I'm an introvert in that I need time to myself to think and process and reflect. Spending time with people I love makes me joy-filled and grateful. Helping others feels good.  When fear threatens to settle in, I work to change my perspective...LOOK for the good. Going to new places opens up my world.  Independent bookstores make my heart smile.

Engage, really engage, in the world. Look people in the eye. Say hello. Ask questions. Have faith. That kind of faith that keeps me warm when days are long and lonely.  Know that what I do matters...
Email I received this week!
Today I celebrate being true to myself...not comparing...finally being grateful for my life. Exactly as it is. There's such freedom in that. Here's a haiku, inspired by that old cartoon character, Popeye...
I am who I am
And that is all that I am
I am who I am
