"Seeing" things a little differently

How to grow a rock


Everyday, WordPress gives us a challenge to write about.  In other words, they give me ideas when I have writers block.  Sometimes I participate and sometimes I opt out.  Today, I’m writing.   Below is my challenge…..easy, breezy!   *********************************************************

Daily Prompt: I Am a Rock

Is it easy for you to ask for help when you need it, or do you prefer to rely only on yourself? Why?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us SELF.

I am a giver by nature.

By:  Sherry L. Cook

I am the person that will bend over backwards to help…listen when you want to talk and understand when no one else does.  I hate to be late for anything and I am usually early.  I give with my heart and I wear it on my sleeve.

People similar to me…

Are the ones that end up hurt. We are emotionally “in” and look forward to the future, sharing through rose-colored glasses.   We get attached then hurt.  You would think we would learn our lessons and start protecting our emotions and even though we try…still get hurt terribly.

That was then…This is now…

Now…I am realizing that I am a ROCK.  I must be my own rock. If there was ever a major lesson for me to realize in my lifetime it is…  I must be my own rock.  Never put all your trust into anything or anyone.

Shielded or scarred?

Do I wear an iron shield around my heart so no one can get that close to do anymore damage?

Or is it a healed scar from past experiences that will never really go away?

I am still working on that answer.  Each day, new experiences and new wisdom come before me.

I am a Rock… and don’t ever forget it.

    Love the quote – hope you don’t mind me posting it to my Facebook. Using a diamond to illustrate this post was a good idea. You’re a glittery gorgeous precious stone. Take care.
