At various points in my life I’ve kept a diary. When I was younger, I’d write my secrets down until I learned that my sister was reading them, then I stopped. Then in undergrad LiveJournal was popular. Remember that? Is it still around? Well, I think maybe I journaled for freshman year and then I was over it. In seeking recovery, I was encouraged to start journaling again and I’ve been going strong for a little over a year. This morning, as I started writing, it occurred to me that I don’t know who I’m writing to. I assume I’m writing to my intuition. The deep down voice inside my gut that never steers me wrong, that is, when I actually listen to it. I guess some people would call that God. But I never feel like I’m writing to the same God that I pray to in church on Sunday. So even if it is God, I’m experience it differently. I decided to just clear my mind and write stream-of-consciousness style about who or what I’m writing to and here is the unedited version of what came.What do you envision when you are writing to your Dear Diary? via @bookwheelblair Click To Tweet
You are a strong, female, Earth mama, warrior woman. You’re rooted in the ground, gaining power and energy from Mother Earth. Your womb is fertile – your superpower. You are love, uplifting, glowing electric. Wild hair, strong, powerful. You are love, compassion, all-knowing, forgiving, patient, not vengeful. LOVE! You love everyone. You are whimsical. You love music and dance. You cry tears of joy, sadness, anger, frustration, and you never hide your face – you are not ashamed. You are fearless. Standing strong and living in your truth. You are my gentle guide. The voice in my head and in my heart. You are my Creator and my seamstress. Sewing back together my millions of broken pieces. One by one, day by day, and you will never stop. Even when I think I’m whole again you will show me that I am more. Thank you Earth Mama Warrior Woman for your patience, love, willingness to be there when I finally recognized how much I need you. Thank you for being the Divine Feminine. Thank you for bringing me to so many other warrior women. Thank you for taking away my fears and for equipping me to handle my difficulties. Thank you.
