When I write….
…it feels like I am sitting around an old fashioned kitchen table, the room is warm, my hand around a beautiful cup, leaning forward, sharing heartfelt words with another woman. Eye contact, compassion and a shared knowing is woven between those words.
It feels like what I write, is something she may be feeling too, maybe the words haven’t found a voice in her yet. Maybe they have, maybe she does not know how to share them.
It feels like the words I write, become the words of so many woman as they read. The emotion when put into words bring a sense of self compassion and gentleness to her. Helps to soften the raw edges of emotions she hasn`t known how to look at or disentangle yet.
As I write, I am giving myself the permission to be honest and I believe that honesty is being birthed within her too.
As I write, I know she may be sitting on her couch, tears softly falling, not knowing if and when and how her life will be different.
As I write, I know that she too yearns for the joy … the light … that is waiting on the other side of her tears.
I know this…
…because I was her 5 years ago, reading the words of another . I was the woman reading and craving another woman’s honesty so that I could begin living my own honesty.
Those blogs helped give me the hope I needed, to know that there must be something on the other side of my own experiences. Another woman`s words became so much light for me.
A good few years ago, I wanted to start a blog myself and call it “Simply in search of Beauty” I never had the courage and I was too troubled at the time to know that beginning that blog would have been so good for me. It is interesting that today I still write so much about Beauty. Our truth never lies, never dies…
This is why I write. This is why I blog. This is how I create beauty from the disentangling of my own emotions and experiences. This is how I keep strengthening my own voice. This is how I guide others to strengthen theirs.
This is how I help guide them back to the light of their own truth.
With so much love
PS: I have a few paintings that I have done a few years ago. Many of them have beautiful open rose blossoms that remind me so much of the quote : “And the time came when the risk to remain tight in the bud was more painful than the risk it takes to blossom.” Anais Nin.
I will be writing more about this soon.
I have started adding them to my shop here http://rozannehenry.com/paintings/
