You know what it’s like? What it’s like to be a creative, passionate person, one with endless ideas, thoughts, passions, one who needs to constantly create, be challenged, share, communicate…and to finally find a place where people appreciate that part of you?
Yeah, perhaps you do. Remember when your realized how amazing that feeling was? Maybe you still feel this every day. Maybe you don’t, and that’s fine. I…I feel this every time I log in here (who am I kidding…I never log out). It’s like…finding my tribe.
There are people close to me in my life to whom I could read my poetry to and they may appreciate that I am passionate, but they don’t share my passion. And that’s okay. Each to his/her own. And while a part of me dies when I sense lack of connection with people who are supposed to be intimate with me emotionally or otherwise…I never expect everything from everyone in my life. It must come from a variety of sources. (This is also why I am poly.)
I honestly don’t know what I would do if I couldn’t share my words with you here. I think my other relationships would drastically suffer without this outlet. I wonder why I waited so long to commit to this part of my expression. But, that’s neither here nor there, well…because I am here now and that’s what matters.
I believe in vulnerability; I believe there is very little that can compare to the level of courageousness it takes to be vulnerable, to exist bravely. I believe in wholeheartedness. I don’t merely believe in it, I live it, and always have. It’s risky, it hurts, it scares people, it’s who I am and when it works…it leads to the most blissful connections full of amazing spine-tingling moments. If you haven’t watched Brené Brown’s video The Power of Vulnerability, please watch it below, it is only 20 minutes – but the most valuable 20 minutes, and prepare to have your mind-blown and your world changed, maybe not overnight…but it will happen.
Thank you for enriching my life and being active participants in this part of my creative life. I feel you surrounding me 24 hours a day.
You’re my tribe.
