Self care

I am being honest about the black dog,

Who is looming large in my life at this time…

And having refused to walk to heel

Has been growling, and prowling around …

So I have looked him in the face and accepted his presence…

Which has the effect of making him a little more bearable …

So I reach out and pat him on the head…

Choosing to care for myself

To eat properly,

To get some exercise,

To ask for help,

To say the rare words “No”, and “I can’t “….

So today, after picking up my meds, I bought myself some flowers….

Looked in the mirror and said to myself, you will be okay….

This too will pass…

About Sally C

How do I describe myself, I am not what I do, (I am a Methodist Minister), I am not who I am related to (I have 5 wonderful children, 2 lovely granddaughters and 2 lovely grandsons). I am a seeker truth, a partaker of life in all it's fullness and a follower, sometimes stumbling, sometimes celebrating of the Christian pathway.
