Inspired by Shakti mama and my feelings of displacement and inbalance these last couple of weeks, I thought I'd also post a picture of me as I am.
This is who I am.
No make up, no hair brush - nothing to hide the person that's inside.
So who am I?
Of course, I'm the labels - I'm the mama, the wife, the sister, the daughter, the friend, the doula, the teacher, the student....
but what is the me that ticks?
I'm a dreamer, I'm argumentative, I'm loving, I'm fiercely loyal, I'm a peace maker, I'm lonely, I'm happy most of the time, I'm sad deep in my core, I like to write, I LOVE to dance but am dreadfully shy and self conscious so I don't dance enough, I doubt myself -- a lot-- but don't want it to rub off on my children, I'm sometimes sarcastic and hurtful - although I don't mean to be and I'm always fighting with myself to be a better and kinder person. I love life with a passion that's so fierce that I sometimes hate life for rushing past me too fast.
I like to drink coffee and alcohol, I still worry about what my parents will say or think, I adore my little sister and wish she lived closer. I cry at stupid things and don't cry at the obvious, I love my feet but hate my arse and tummy. I hate living in Edinburgh and wish I could have stayed in America for-EVER. I love the sun, but grey skies make me sad. I'd love to own a VW Beetle or Citroen 2CV but instead own a people/dog/crap carrier.
So, happy Monday morning - to the REAL you! xx
