We Are Who We Are....Embrace that

This song is a huge part of stays in my soul..i hope you have time to listen to it....

I am a girl who collects things..Books, and buttons and odds and ends of things..Like a fairy. I capture the odd and beautiful things of life in jars.

I raise Paper whites in the window in Winter ..I capture Spring that way..

I look for ways to make people feel beautiful and loved.

"We are who we are..Embrace that today..."

Sometimes we let guilt for things we didn't do weigh us down. We can't let the past drown us. We are all guilty for something.

I wish in so many ways I could have relived parts of my life over. I wish in I could change so many things...But I can't .

I can only go on with today and look for ways to be happy with myself. With my surroundings.

Don't let guilt swallow you today.

Move on..Do it. Move on. It is time. Be happy and start a new life.

Love Nita

Every word so true!! Such love written in those words as I read them. I've missed you and I'm happy when you post...I dont know if you knew this, but I thought I told you...I lost my only brother almost a month ago, and I have some quilt I'm struggling with, and I needed to read this. I LOVE YOU AND PLEASE KEEP COMING BACK....MISSED YOU

Hi Nita, I am sorry it has been a while since I last popped by. I am so very happy to see your heart is shining a brightly as ever.
This is such a wonderful post, thank you for sharing it. If we could learn to embrace ourselves for who we really are,TODAY. We are not defined by our situation or circumstances in life and we are not defined by our past. I carry guilt from the past as we all do. I am able to find a degree of comfort in knowing, yes there were times when I was an insensitive jerk. But, that is who I used to be. I am not like that anymore. OK,maybe, I should say I really try not to be like that anymore.
Be kind to yourself, embrace yourself as the kind, loving good person you are today.
Your post has such a wonderful message, I hope you don't mind if I borrow the idea for my own blog in the next few days.
