V Is For VULNERABILITY

V Is For VULNERABILITY


Feeling vulnerable, something I have felt a lot in my life. Vulnerable in relationships, vulnerable in grief, vulnerable in loneliness - vulnerable.

“Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy—the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.”  ~ Brene Brown

U Is For UNCERTAINTY

AtoZChallenge Uncertainty Road


No-thing is certain, the only certainty we have is life itself. Life is beyond all form, all shape or sense of control, it has no limits, it has no edges, it is like the sky itself.

T Is For TICKLED PINK

AtoZChallenge Tickled Pink T

As the challenge goes on for this A to Z writing extravaganza the words get slightly tougher as my theme is feelings. I was considering 'thankful', but then I thought I would simply share what tickles me pink and I admit perhaps some are more awe-filled and not so tickled, but joy tickles me so awe is tickly too (smile).

TICKLED PINK :
  1. verb (used with object), tickled, tickling. 1. to touch or stroke lightly with the fingers, a feather, etc., so as to excite a tingling or itching sensation in; titillate. 2. to poke some sensitive part of the body so as to excite spasmodic laughter. To fill with mirth or pleasure; delight. Very pleased; delighted.
So feeling tickled pink is so much about feeling absolutely delighted.

S Is For SEXY

Sexy Open Flower AtoZChallenge

What is sexy to you? I used to think it was tall dark handsome, but now, as I have grown more wise (grin), I realise that sex appeal is an inside job. Someone can be stereotypically beautiful and have no sex appeal at all. Sexy comes from within, physical beauty that we are often brainwashed to believe to be sexy needs to have the whole package. My boyfriend told me recently that often those who may not be in the category of 'attractive' may work harder at developing their inner world, their self confidence, self empowerment etc etc.. whereas someone who may be hit with the 'pretty' stick from birth perhaps does not feel the need to look within as much as someone who may feel physically challenged in that way. And in many a sense those hit with the pretty stick may not have to develop a pleasant personality because there is queue of admirers waiting in line for them.

R Is For RADIANCE

AtoZChallenge R is for RADIANCE

We all have an inner radiance, I was reminded recently that no matter how much I may have issues with my appearance, when the inner light, the inner beauty shines out it doesn't matter. It can be a hard understanding to swallow, especially when the majority of the world highlights the importance of outer beauty, but slowly I am beginning to see my own light shine out, regardless of any perceived 'imperfections' I may feel I have.

For the purpose of this post I am going to post images of people who many may view as not stereotypically attractive or beautiful yet I can clearly see this radiant beauty shining out.

P Is For POVERTY

ATOZ CHALLENGE P is for POVERTY

Poor brings up so many connotations, starving children in Africa to homeless people on the street in the Western world, yet poor to me is a state of mind.

There seem to be so many degrees of feeling poor and what feels like poverty to one person is absolute abundance to another. I know of many people in my life who would be absolutely crushed with my income level at this present time, they would not know how to cope and they would feel absolutely devastated. And I can empathise with this because poverty consciousness and feeling poor has been something that has played on my mind and spirit for quite some time.

O Is For Over-Sensitive

AtoZChallenge Over Sensitive

For as long as I remember people have been saying to me "Stop being so over-sensitive Kelly" or "You're too sensitive Kelly!". Being sensitive was always deemed to be a bad thing - a weakness.

Many years later I am now slowly beginning to see being sensitive as an asset, being sensitive connects me to people and I now meet more people who are just as sensitive as me by revealing my sensitivity and accepting it.
