What I know about Michelle...
She doesn't enter a room with a big bang,
she prefers to quietly slip in unnoticed,
to take her place in the scheme of things as if she's always been there.
She likes to be seen but not in the "Look at me! Look at me!" kind of way,
more in the sit next to me and lets share out stories kind of way.
Her beauty isn't a lot of razzle-dazzle,
like a lightning storm demanding attention with all its flash and glory,
Her's is a more subtle beauty,
like the slow flowing of one season into the next,
a soft blooming, hardly noticeable at first.
She's never been the popular one, the flashy one, the talkative one,
She's the one who needs the deeper things of life,
the one who wants to talk about spirit and bliss and woundedness and the true things of life.
What I know about Michelle is that everyday is filled with wanting to learn, to grow, discovering more about herself, others, and the world around her.
What I know about Michelle is she's carefully getting to a place in her life where everything she knows is okay just as it is,
that there is perfection in the imperfection,
that she just gets better with age,
that permission is something she has to give herself and not seek from others,
that she likes her sweet self and her equally sweet life,
that you are more than welcome to take a peek inside
her heart is open.

i love that you let us see you in your pain, your searching, your process, your celebrations, your nakedness, your life... i love it when someone reminds me that exactly where i am at, right in this moment, is perfection... thank you for this gift... i love seeing you...

I like this SP and what u wrote with it. It is so hard to define what we all are and what we want. Self discovery is always a good thing to learn about..But always seems to be the toughest.
