the tree of life

the other day 
 

I went to a workshop
about the tree of life

 

seeing the tree as a metaphor for my life
this week we started with the soil

 

this is to do with the present
where I am now

 

I am pretty stable
and comfortable

 

I have friends and things to do
we had to talk to the person next to us

 

we had to describe what resilience means to us
I said that I thought it meant the self belief that we can overcome obstacles

 

but, everyone had a different take on it!

Today, I've been awarded funds-
to treat myself!

I am an unpaid carer
part of me feels guilty

unentitled

am I unentitled?

I don't deserve it

in reality

I do!

I should stop giving myself a hard time!
