First of all, I have a follow up to my “Wounded” post. I talked with the thoughtless person who had hurt my feelings, and it turns out that they thought my heart-felt offer was a pity offer. They didn’t want my pity. Which – you know, who does? No body.
So I’m retracting some of my Rebellious Obliger/ I am a Warrior stance. I do still need to make sure I’m taking care of myself, this was a good reminder, but I can ease up a bit on them and on myself.
In other news, I still have a few posts from my April Thoughts fantasies sitting in drafts. I think I’ve been pushing my own sexuality away again, but I can feel it re-emerging. It was nudged further into the open by discovering this blog –Erin Controls, by Mistress Erin. She has that Domme presence that might make one hot and squirmy even if one’s not interested in F/f relationships. It looks like she’s just getting started, so that’s very cool.
Early this morning, I ran across a FB post that I’ve shared here because it’s so beautiful. The picture is (I assume) a photograph of Maria Sabina, the Mexcian healer and poet who shares her advice.
“Heal yourself with the light of the sun and the rays of the moon. With the sound of the river and the waterfall. With the swaying of the sea and the fluttering of birds. Heal yourself with mint, neem, and eucalyptus. Sweeten with lavender, rosemary, and chamomile. Hug yourself with the cocoa bean and a hint of cinnamon. Put love in tea instead of sugar and drink it looking at the stars. Heal yourself with the kisses that the wind gives you and the hugs of the rain. Stand strong with your bare feet on the ground and with everything that comes from it. Be smarter every day by listening to your intuition, looking at the world with your forehead. Jump, dance, sing, so that you live happier. Heal yourself, with beautiful love, and always remember … you are the medicine.”
