"don't fence me in. don't make me conform"
in other words, LET ME BE ME…be yourself.
remember, this is my year to EMERGE and after spending two months in florida, i'm back. back, as in physically being back in wisconsin and back, as in emotionally being back and ready to take on the world. well, maybe not the world, but i will be wearing my imaginary cape that will let people know, "i'm happy to be me."
now granted, i'm sure there will be days when my cape will flap haphazardly in the wind and will perhaps be tied a bit too tight around my neck and i'll have to do some occasional adjustments, just like a sail on a boat, but i'm pretty sure it's going to keep me moving perfectly...in the right direction.
love and warmth and sand and the sound of the wind through the willows on the lake and pina coladas and old friends and smiles and long walks and strangers and shells and feathers and fog and new friends and key lime pie and sea birds and bike rides and sunsets are just a few of the gifts that i've been soaking up and in these past two months.
so to say i'm refreshed and relaxed and rejuvenated would be an understatement. instead, parts of me have been so blessedly reorganized that sometimes my reflection in the mirror catches me off guard and i stop and stare. then i softly smile and say "oh, hey there you."
