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,

What I’ve Learned so far at 41…

After 6 months of going through the nurse coaching processing as a client, I know without a doubt that my voice matters!

I am no longer afraid to publicly say what I think even if it is different than the majority. I have the courage to be me and am choosing from this day forward to accept others where they are.

What do you need to say out loud that you have not yet said? I challenge you to speak the truth in love, holding nothing back.

It’s okay to believe differently than those we love. Unity is not uniformity.

Unity is defined as “a thing forming a complex whole.”

A little something I read on Instagram that spoke deeply to my heart early this morning when sleep alluded me…

“Bring me the one who disagrees to my face but supports me behind my back. Bring me the one who takes risks a little far but pushes people to be better than they were today. Bring me the one who challenges me to rethink my perspective, to research before forming an opinion, and who has relentless faith that we will work out our differences and if we don’t, we’ll disagree cordially….

Bring me the messy ones.” @principal_jess

“Bring me the messy ones!” – Jessica Alessio @nursehealingadvocate

I’m so thankful for a mother who taught me, and continues to teach me, about unconditional love in spite of differences in beliefs, appearances, and talents.

Most everything I learned about love, I learned it first from my mother because of her relentless courage to choose faith over fear, love over hate, unity over division.

She taught me it’s okay to be messy, that it’s okay to be myself, that it’s okay to be different. She accepts me as I am, and holds space for me no matter the choices I make.

It is my hope for every human that you find your path and find your peace, wherever that may be.

It is my belief that we are on this earth to hold healing space for each other, no matter what.

Much Love!!!
Ruth Renee

We are wired for connection…

We have to get back to a place where we look each other in the eyes, in person as much as possible!

If you’re feeling isolated or lonely, I have this question for you…

How is your connection with humans in the real world? It it greater than, equal, or less than your connection to social media and the digital world?

If you need some help finding balance and connection, I can help.

My hope is for our world to come out of isolation, and find greater peace in connecting with each other as raw, vulnerable humans.

My challenge for you today: connect with 3 people today in person, and really look each other in the eyes. 👀

Where is your favorite place to connect with others in person?

We are wired for in-person connection. @nursehealingadvocate
