December Dawn

December Dawn – 2017


A new day dawning

finally free of a burden

that caused so much pain

across decades

because yesterday I chose

to trust

caring competent others

and face my greatest fears.

  3. Beautiful photograph and beautiful words. Our fears hold us back and prevent us fully experiencing our lives, it is so difficult to trust others when you have been hurt. I am pleased you have been able to confront yours and wish you well on your journey forward. 💜

    1. Thank you so much for your lovely comments, Izzy, and for the wonderful multi-colored hearts. I send you love and warm wishes to you. ❤

      PS: I hope you share your secret about how to post the many-colored hearts! I'm not very good with technology. 🙂

      1. No secret, but it just happened. I’ve got an icon for a ‘touch keyboard’ on the toolbar of my laptop. I clicked on it, a keyboard appeared on screen and I clicked on a smiley face at the bottom left hand side of the keyboard which then gave me lots of coloured hearts. I’m not technically minded either and it was just one of those things. I’ve seen these hearts on other people’s posts and wondered how they got them and then I just happened across them. Coincidence or synchronicity?? Hope you manage to find them.

  5. Just came across this quote, thought I would share it:

    “Hope begins in the dark, the stubborn hope that if you just show up and try to do the right thing, the dawn will come. You wait and watch and work: you don’t give up.” Anne Lamott

  6. Sound guidance that we know as a child but stubbornly neglect as world weary adults. I hope this morning finds you well Dear Carol. Your posts always remind me to slow down. Peace to you during this special time of the year.
