Me – 42 years later
Rewriting my 1978 poem
Now, that I’ve broken free from the drama of my youth;
Having learned what it means to heal and become whole;
And written, spoken and sang many times about all of that;
Having traveled through many of the states I’d dreamed of;
I’ve found myself, and continued to be:
Steeped in history;
Fascinated by my ancestry;
Serene near the ocean;
Entranced by magical trees;
Engaged with mystical rocks;
And mesmerized by waterfalls;
Raising children at the World’s Most Famous Beach, and lastly at the Jersey shore;
Enjoying the beach sand in summer,
The endless sway of the palm trees,
More than watching the games people play;
I’ve lived in the middle of the USA in the icy winter and visited snowy New England,
To usher in new technology and witness twin granddaughters birth;
I haven’t always been true to myself,
but I’ve experienced magnificence growth in ALL.
I’ve found excitement, romance, pain, and peace;
I’ve discovered that I’ve always been me, in ALL ways—whether happy or sad;
And I am thankful.
I am content.
I was me all along.
And I put all of me into my children, the good, the bad, and the beautiful;
My soul hasn’t changed much, but my mind and heart has expanded;
Widening my perception;
Deepening my compassion;
I’ve enhanced my understanding of so many things;
And calibrated back to balance;
To continue to bloom where I am planted.
Me – 42 years later.
I have a passion for WORDS and Connecting people. In particular, I love speaking and writing about spiritual and consciousness raising topics, holistic wellness and simple healthy living. I am empathic, intuitive, compassionate, and kind, with a keen and unified wisdom about life.
Conversations surrounding emotional balance, moral ambiguities, and deep spiritual truths (such as We Are All Connected, and Put Your Hands Together When You Pray), are what Sheila is most passionate about. She feels a profound empathic Connection with people and what they’re going through by merely sharing her own truth, by speaking freely about her personal struggles and the challenges she continues to overcome. Sheila strives to ease lonelines, help those exiting toxic relationships, and to remind us all that we are stronger than we think we are, and that Everything Resolves to Gratitude in the end.
