Respect yourself

Love is respecting the person you love, having admiration for their accomplishments. Love is trusting the one you love to be true no matter where you are because you know they are committed to you as you are to them. Love is catching up, discovering a slightly different person than the one you knew. Love is an understanding that is almost telepathic, love is a heady mixture of old and new.

Love is also respect for yourself and love for yourself. Love is forgiving your flaws, accepting them. Love is understanding what you need in your life and what you don't need. Love is taking care of yourself, of being who you truly are.

We all need someone to love but we should not need someone to love us, we should love ourselves.

Happiness is.....

Happiness is a warm shared glance with someone who knows you better than you know yourself. With someone who has made a study of your every mood and expression. Happiness is shared jokes and memories. Happiness is feeling loved and loving. Happiness is excitement for the future, and fondness for the past. Happiness is sharing on every level, unselfishly.

Freedom is emotional maturity and emotional maturity is freedom.

How do we learn to be emotionally mature? by taking responsibility for our actions. By acknowledging our mistakes. When we see our self truly and love ourselves unconditionally we have no need of another. All choices are made freely without the constraint that need can wrap us in. When we do not need the constant presence of someone to give us an identity, we are truly free.

Emotional maturity allows us to forgive ourselves and others for we are all the same, only the mistakes are different. Always help a fellow traveller if you can but not in a way which impedes your journey.

Each of us has to make their own journey. If we are fortunate we have a companion for some of the way. When we no longer need a mirror to know who we are we are truly free.

Well there are finally no more obstacles or reasons for me not to go, and I am going to go travelling. I will travel light and write as I go, its the only thing I want to do. So many things that are nearly ready but I must not forget new stuff, I am writing in my head most of the time now. I have a lot I have not listened to which needs to be said. And it is all said when it is written. I have worried all  my life, always been anxious. I will travel with no thought for the future and see where I lead myself. A life's work I think to undo the chains but a worthwhile journey, one with no particular destination.
Heigh ho I guess a garage sale is on the way
Keep you posted
