November 20 REBLOGATHON… I Remember

When it feels tough to keep going, it’s best to remember beautiful memories, whether past memories or future fantasies. The point is to refocus as soon as you catch yourself spiralling down… and change the energy dynamics that gloom and doom bring in to something bright and chirpy!

A post I made back in 2019, containing a poem I wrote to my mum came up today. It is to remind me of all my beautiful memories growing up. There is indeed always something magnificent going on, you just have to shift your perception, that allows you to feel the subtle energies of love, joy and peace infinitely flowing in the background of you and me.

Enjoy this poem and may it inspire you to write your own poem to remind you each time may be something to be grateful for and smile about!

I Remember…

I REMEMBER feeling you for the first time, so soft and cuddly, 
and feeling a sense of belonging…

I REMEMBER blowing out my first birthday candle, 

making a mess and bouncing in an indoor chair…

I REMEMBER playing with my sister outdoors and in our conservatory

watching the caterpillars, chrysalis and butterflies transform in jam-jars…

I REMEMBER taking care of our pet guinea-pig, 

rabbit and cat and the pony who still remains in my imagination…

I REMEMBER hearing the piano played, the fingers so fluent 

on the keys and my music lessons on the guitar…

I REMEMBER playing with my friends in the park and 

digging our garden with my dad and sister…

I REMEMBER trips to my grandparents in the country and in the town

celebrating family birthdays, weddings and christmas..

I REMEMBER the inner joy I always felt at christmas time, santa’s sherry 

and mince pie, made possible by you and dad’s love and excitement…

I REMEMBER us going away on holidays, riding donkeys, making 

sand castles and running on the beach and into the sea…

I REMEMBER feeling tensions, tears and sadness 
but didn’t know how to deal with it…  

I REMEMBER watching you wash the clothes and dishes, 

cleaning the house and you teaching me to iron…

I REMEMBER loving to watch films with my dad and 

sister and crackerjack at 5 to 5…

I REMEMBER your love for flowers, the smell of your 

roses and admiring your green fingers…

I REMEMBER feeling rebellious, a sense of conflict between me and the

outside world and being called mary-mary-quite-contrary…

I REMEMBER finding it hard to breathe for a while and feeling an

inner urge to explore, find freedom and who I truly was…

I REMEMBER you letting me go… to begin my adventure alone, 

my wings expanded in confidence, I took off to discover beyond…

It has taken time for me to look at the mixture of feelings I have 
ever felt and to see them as part of my experience, not who IAM… 

You can know the sprinkle of your love and joy, has overflowed into 

me and has become one with my own sense of loving self…

Love forever intertwined, your nurturing is my nurturing, your love 

is my love, your joy is my joy, you are and IAM one…

Each morning I awake in a bundle of love, have a sense of joy and

excitement and arise to create another best moment exploring All That Is…

I turn my head around and feel your presence, your embrace and I gently 

kiss you on the cheek saying thank you for being you…

Your loving daughter Barbara xxx

Ah dear Barbara, to remember and feel what we were to what we have become is indeed that love that follows it all. Seeing the past in hindsight for what it was, so that you can see its purpose. Even the future is promises kept. Keep holding its beauty my friend, it is indeed teaching us something wonderful. Breathe and a very big hug dear lady, each poem in our hearts will remind us and dare to set us free. This one has indeed done just that 😀❤️🙏🏽
