A poem… Who Am I?

This is a poem I wrote in Spring 2021…

I am bridge
Translator of sorts
Connector
Between two worlds

It’s hard being
Between two places
Never fully in one
Or the other

I long to walk
on the water
Swim deep
From shore to shore

Yet here I stay…

I am bridge

“Yet here I stay… I am bridge”

….

It’s hard being the one
To take the first step

To trust again
After being hurt, betrayed
By those I love
By strangers
By myself

And yet

I take the first step

My words
my speech
Create worlds
new realities

Majestic trees
flowing rivers
purest lakes
gentle places to rest

I take the first step

“And yet… I take the first step”

….

I allow myself to reconnect
To God, to Grace, to Knowing
that No One is perfect

To Understanding
that No One is worthy
except God Alone

my Eyes turn toward heaven
my Heart turns toward heaven

I Am Bridge

To Wonder
Curiosity
Imagination

“I allow myself to reconnect… to wonder, curiosity, imagination”

Come with me
Take the first step
I am here
To walk beside
On this road less travelled

Let me be
a bridge
To the place
where hope is found
Until you find
This hope, yourself

When you trust in God
with all your heart
Step
by step
by step

“Come with me, take the first step…”

Much love,
Ruth Renee ✨

Some of the gratitude responses! ❤️❤️ @nursehealingadvocate

I want to take a moment to reflect on the benefits of gratitude…

Gratitude is so good for the energy of the soul, and has the power to uplift the weary spirit.

It is free and one of the most effective tools I know of that restores and maintains your health.

A dedicated daily practice of gratitude powerfully supports all aspects of your health.

When we feel better, we do better. We choose life! And, we choose more often to live in faith rather than fear when we are in a place of gratitude, no matter the circumstances.

“When we feel better, we do better. We choose life!” IG@nurse_healing_advocate

I’m curious….
do you have a gratitude practice?

If so, I’d love to hear about it!

If not, World Mental Health Day is a great day to start!

For me, I write in my journal a short list of the things I am grateful for at the end of the day.

I’m not perfect. Some days I get busy and I forget, but continuing to come back to this practice of daily gratitude as I review my day creates peace in my life.

I hope you have a blessed day, and invite you to choose gratitude, not for all things, but IN all things.

With gratitude,
