When you give too much,and don’t leave space to receive, you’re not being loving to the one person who should matter the most to you- YOURSELF!
I know a Woman, who is just like you.
When you realize that any outward work is useless, unless it also leads to inner work. And outward kindness and compassion starts with first being that way towards yourself.
I’ve always loved finding the meaning of new words. Some Japanese words, like this one, are so deep and meaningful. One word. SO much meaning. Kintsugi is a word that inspired this piece of poetry. It is about brokenness and how it doesn’t have to mean the end of anything. I hope you like reading it.

When you feel your Purpose is starting to look out of reach, it really isn’t. You’re just looking at it all wrong. Hopefully this little poem will show it to you.
‘Propellers’ is a term I use for people and situations that have taught me valuable lessons. Without these propellers, we would have been stuck. They shake things up and help us be unstuck.
Notes to myself post recording this Karaoke version of Meghan Trainor’s Original-
*One does look vain recording these. But it’s fun also. So I’ll take the risk of seeming vain, which I’m not, promise.
This live performance, by absolute legends in Music, is classic and unique, in that, it engulfs you in its melancholy, making you feel slightly downhearted by the despair it expresses… BUT at the same time you feel somehow strangely healed by the wistful expression of it all. By the end of it, you’re almost ecstatic that by just watching them perform, you have shared in a little of what they were feeling on stage.
I believe that if what you’ve written speaks to someone, it’s only because your words are being read by a similar feeling heart.
