Funny how those words sound so similar. I went back to myself this week. Me, the Trish that I am, that I am happiest being. I made it to my water aerobics class three times this week just like I promised myself I would. Yes! Go Me!!!! I laughed more. I listened to the tiny voice of HOPE I carry around in my head. It was just where I had left her waiting; until I needed her again.
I AM…most at peace with myself when I am true to myself. I am happily married. I am a power in my own right. I am worth my journey. I realized that I have a real life. I am loved. I am needed. I am EVERYTHING I never thought I would be. I AM…
Walking side by side today with my love, I finally realized that what we have is the realest thing I have ever allowed myself to be a part of. We lost sight of each other through a field of strangers at the BIG E today. I felt myself get a little panicky. I told myself all would be ok. The look of concern that registered across his face when I located him; how it melted away just by his seeing me, told me a thousand tales. Why wasn’t I willing to recognize the depth of his love before that moment escapes me. Maybe I didn’t want to believe someone could love me madly, truly, deeply. Guess I am the lucky one. Love is indeed a wonderful gift that keeps on giving.
Don’t hold back, love the people in your life!

Gorgeous realization! You are indeed very lucky to have this love, and it’s deserved of course. At 51, I’m still searching… hopefully I’m getting close… And just keep being YOU; no one else is more qualified : )
Thanks for that. In matters of the heart I lack any true wisdom but I never give up hope. = )
