Sometimes life throws you challenges and sometimes it's not easy coping when they come. As many of you know from reading my book and my blog, my life has not been a smooth running life, like many reading this I imagine. Life has given me many opportunities to accept what is, to embrace my reality and to find a tenderness in what takes place.

Next year I turn 40 and for most of the time I look around at people my own age and I don't feel that age at all. Inside me is a 25 year old who is now re-living her misspent youth.
When I was a teenager I had a hard challenging time, like most teenagers, but I did not feel I fully lived my youth. I was also quite a shy child pre-teen and did not get to enjoy the fun and play many children did as I spent most of my time hiding or playing on my own. Now, I feel I have a new lease of life and the youthfulness is emerging as I become more my true self and I am being more and more authentic daily.

Okay, sooo... as I am coming to the end of this blogging challenge I am cheating today. My theme is feelings and apart from Xenophobic and X'd out I chose something on a list of adjectives and one word was XOXO, totally cheating.
Sometimes I just need a hug.
Sometimes I just can't stop kissing.
“That's what people do who love you. They put their arms around you and love you when you're not so lovable.”

Many would probably think of me as a younger wild child, I drank far too much alcohol in my earlier years from around 14, but I was not so much wild, more lost and empty. I reacted badly when I was 13 to my sister being born as an only child and it was a shock to suddenly have a sister, but more so my parents attention went to the new sibling when I needed them the most during my teenage years.

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

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.

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 :
So feeling tickled pink is so much about feeling absolutely delighted.
