A rainbow of emotions. Raw. Vibrant. Very much alive.
The sun shines through the rain to make a rainbow. Such beauty is formed by contrasting weather. I guess it's the same with feelings - growth comes from getting through. Gracefully, with gritted teeth, I am getting through.
Recently I felt a glimpse of myself. I suddenly realised as I walked down the street in the sunshine, my baby sleeping snuggled up close in a wrap, that I felt like a whole, happy, strong, confident, grateful woman. A bit like who I was before. But different.
The moment passed quickly but it was there. I was there, fully, in that moment.
