I have other blogs where I post writings, poems concerning my faith, prayers, thoughts. But this is the first one I’ve attempted that is just about sharing my life. Something I wrote a long time ago explains why I chose the heading I did.
FREE TO SHARE
A butterfly is free
giving to all who see.
A turtle hides in its shell
never letting anyone know him well.
I would rather be like the butterfly,
giving, sharing beauty, free.
Not like the turtle,
afraid, hiding, a prisoner.
the butterfly used to be
a caterpillar trapped in a cocoon.
This gives hope for change!
I have always struggled with my tendency to “hide” from people – my thoughts, my words, my eyes, and who I am inside. But isolation always leads to depression, lack of joy. I want to be like the butterfly and I hope with this blog, I can open my heart and share freely from my life.
