Conversations with Self

All  day long

I speak silently

To myself

 

Sometimes

It’s a to-do list

Sometimes

It’s catching memories

Sometimes

It’s following a dream

 

Sometimes it’s a harder conversation

Sometimes I catch myself sliding into negativity

But I am not my thoughts

 

I awaken to the magic of being alive

Dwelling in possibilities

Focusing on the moment

It’s all we have

 

“The timeless in you is aware of life’s timelessness. And knows that yesterday is but today’s memory and tomorrow is today’s dream.”
― Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet

“Everything works out in the end. If it hasn’t worked out yet, then it’s not the end.” ~ Tracy McMillan

  1. Loved your poem, beautiful and well-written. I had to just repeat this… “The timeless in you is aware of life’s timelessness. And knows that yesterday is but today’s memory and tomorrow is today’s dream.”
    ― Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet. I’ve not heard this before, but how beautiful. Thank you

    Beautiful, Olga. Boy do I relate to what you wrote! No we are not our thoughts yet our thoughts are the very essence that create our lives. I couldn’t tell you how many times I thought of something and then a day later …. that very thing appears in my life. I end up asking …. Now did I project that thought into my life or was it a premonition of me knowing this was going to happen. I still don’t have the answer. LOL

    That we are not our thoughts is so important to remember. I love your insights here, and the quotations are an effective addition.

    “…Dwelling in possibilities
    Focusing on the moment…”
    Coming back to presence, the relief of putting down the weight those thoughts carry.
