83. When you give yourself away, Remember this… _ Carlene Kurdziel

When you do give yourself away,
You realise that there is really no such a thing
as away from yourself.
True love will let you fall madly in love with that being
yet also more in love with partsl
long forgotten in yourself.

When you do give yourself away,
do so slowly.
With meaning
and with purpose.
Patiently, because as with all things true
there is no rush.

No haste to soak up
the good parts of your time together
like a sponge.
Until another can pick it up
and wring out
all of its substance.
Because love does not spoil
and neither will you.

Pursue your life relentlessly
and carefully.
Lock up your secrets and wishes
inside your mind.
Imagine them, dream of them
and work tirelessly to see those ideas
come to life
in our own time.

Know your worth
and let it beam out from every line on your face;
every step taken with the confidence
that you have already made it.

Because you are beautiful
and filled with grace
and have a heart
that aches to have others
realize that these are the traits
which we all have in common.
You don’t have anything to prove
by rushing through everything.
Savor all your moments.

How sweet,
this patience.
Swallowing pride but bursting with ideas—with goodness
Knowing some things in life
need to have time to simmer down
to rid of the extra weight
before they are ready.

We are taught society’s idea of sensibilities
but are unable to be sensible,
with ourselves.

Once we have accepted these sensibilities,
the way we go about our every day:
Do we realize how beautiful it is
to live senselessly?
Madly in love with the fact
that this is our one go.
This is the only moment
to create our own piece of heaven
on this spinning rock….❣
