Hello Deep Soul.
Having a soul that feels deeply is wonderful. Right?
I mean we sense so many things. Even something as simple as dripping ice-cream or passing clouds puts us into deep and contemplative thought. (especially when we are slowed down and can be fully present)
But having a deep feeling soul goes both ways.
See, while we can be wrapped up in a blissful contentment of the breeze over waving grass, melodic morning birds, and cool rippling water with smooth pebbles under our feet…we can also go deep down.
down into dark places where the air is thin and the light is dim. As high and light as we can feel one extreme, we can be just the opposite in the deepest depths of melancholy.
That can morph quickly into a menagerie of every other thing that pulls us deeper and deeper into our hurts, pains, sorrows.
Deep Soul, I get that. These cards… you recall I want them to benefit TWLOHA (To Write Love On Her Arms). They are all about these deep dark feelings and helping others through the rough spots. They are about helping others reach for air and light.
And Deep Soul, please… I know you need to go into the deep. Because we all need to feel. But don’t forget to come up for air. And if you forget…have a life line – a love line – in place before you go for that deep swim.
When you’re down at the bottom, when you need air, it’s not impossible.
It’s worth it.
And you are deeply loved.
Reach for the light.
You might even find it in an ice-cream cone. I know that may seem / feel small…trite. But for a girl who has done her fair share of bottom dwelling… trust me. Ice-cream on a cone… on a cone.
You are loved Deep Soul.
You wouldn’t be you without the depth that you feel things.
Just remember to get some air and light.
My hope is that one day these Truth Cards will come to good use. Eventually I’d like to publish them with proceeds benefiting TWLOHA (because I think what they do is so very important). I have no idea how that will work, but it is a wish. For now they are my gift to you. So without further ado, here is your Truth Card to print. I’m offering one each week, collect them all and you’ll have a beautiful set of 52 cards. Simply click on the card (which takes you to my Flickr set) and download and print. I have my Truth Cards on a small easel. They look best printed 5″ x 5″. You are free to give them to others, in fact it would be a huge honor if you did. I just ask that you do not remove the copyright info. This is an honor system, I honor you, you honor me. n♥JOY!
