SPC {Pop Art Kinda?-1}


  • somebody thinks I'm a swirled rubber ball, bouncing around, changing the world with my truth
  • somebody likes all my facets and complexities
  • somebody thinks I'm simply beautiful
  • somebody appreciates my truth and honesty
  • somebody feels as if I'm a kindred spirit
  • somebody believes I am precious, wild and alive
  • somebody thinks I have guts and grace
  • somebody calls me amazing
  • somebody says I'm a girl who rocks
  • somebody loves my bravery
  • somebody believes I'm a gift
  • somebody tells me I'm special to them
  • somebody thinks I'm inspiring, a minister, a force of change
  • somebody thanks me for being open, loving and real
  • somebody sees me...really sees ME

Thank you! All of you. These are words taken straight from comments you've left me. All of you are my somebodies. Thank you for seeing my truth. Thank you for seeing all the beauty in me. Thank you for constantly holding the mirror up to my face, reminding me of who I am...because god knows there are times I can't see it for myself and I need your eyes. Thank you for being eyes of grace.

ps--I have posted the game plan!

And of course, they are true.

Very creative pop art :) We all need validation and it looks like you have it in abundance.

Your journal project sounds great. My disability won't allow me to write any longer, but I will keep tabs on this project. Good Luck!

Michelle, I can completely relate to your feelings about the validation you get from blogging. Ultimately, I realize I have to be able to do that for myself. Keep putting yourself out there, because the world needs it. :-)
