the bluest eye
i have been tagged to link back to five of my previous posts that relate to the following topics: (of course, i had to go and make things difficult by not being able to choose between the two favorites of each.)
your love: my idea of home shares the history and captain & chenille was a visual sigh.
friend: this twenty years ago today post is still true. he really was my best friend. this is what i am gonna miss was a heartpull when sage was off to college.
yourself: those ers, girlicious booty queen and the inking man were my favorites.
family: it was a tossup between sleeping minimen and unstolen identity.
a post i like: last february, i remember the relief when he decided that we weren't moving in noble work of birds and the clarity in this homage to a soulsister in weight & freedom, less than two months later. reading these makes me so grateful that we don't know what tomorrow brings.
as i took some time to reread some of my journal's posts, i realized the magnitude of change that has happened in less than a year. it almost seems surreal and it makes me appreciate the gift of journaling. you can stare at things from a different angle and take a good look at yourself then, decide who you will be today and where you want to be tomorrow.
if you get a chance, reread your blog, journal, or even a scribbled dayplanner. you might be struck by where you were just a year ago. maybe, you can laugh when you couldn't before or not cry when you couldn't stop the tears. hopefully, your mind is more open and your heart is fuller.
tag yourself and start the staredown.
