I Love That For You {Guest Essay from Emily Peele}

Hi there captivating blog readers! My life has me unable to blog as frequently as I once was. I’m creating content once a week on Mondays and have decided to open up this platform for other writers to share when they feel led to! My first Wednesday guest post was sent to my inbox from one of my dearest and most insightful friends. Grab a cup of coffee or tea, and chew on the words of Emily Peele.

Transformative honesty that liberates the rest of us to do the same open talking. Thank you for this openness and for closing with our monarch of feminist thought, bell hooks.

Dear Diary.

Once, I attempted to write a poem which referenced a line from every journal I’ve had since I was 6 years old. The poem didn’t read well and so it has lived in an old journal of mine since last Fall. That particular old journal has been stowed away in my camera bag and I just pulled it out this week. As I read through it, it was that piece which I connected to the most. I decided, as per usual, to share.

This is absolutely gorgeous. I love it- not just the idea of constructing a poem from journals throughout the years, or that you pulled this poem comprised of lines from old journals out of an old journal and then had the courageous vulnerability to share it- but mostly your sweet, genuine heart boldly scribing raw heartbeats across the page. It is a thing of beauty, and thank you for sharing. xo.

Flood Waters.

We used to swim in flood waters.
In the summer we spent at dad’s house the river would rise.
He had two mobile homes that backed up to the water and lived on top of stilts

No one will ever convince me that praying for a hedge of protection around your children doesn’t work. I bet you have a gaziillion angels keeping watch. It would nice if we could see them ………

So beautiful

So beautiful.

Duality and My Human Condition.

Honestly, I feel like an imposter most of the time. Being in my body feels a lot like being uneasy. I’ve come to believe that we all feel similarly to a degree. I’ve chosen to own my own brand of strange and to love my body because it is the only real home that I’ve ever had. But, there’s a constant nagging.

I have things in my life that exist to remind me that I’m not quite perfect. There’s an option to accept the fact that I’ll never be perfect, to hold onto that and just let go. But, I haven’t quite gotten there yet. I still feel the need to constantly refine myself and try over and over again to be what I deem as ‘exactly right.’

I love when I read something that speaks to my heart and has me shed a few tears. Thank you for these well said beautiful words.

Thank you for reading Zoe and for taking the time to comment!

Dear Sarajane…

On my birthday I was having some heart aches.
I was feeling uncertain of my place and unable to live up to my own expectations.

I decided that was bullshit.
So, I wrote myself a love letter.
I didn’t intend to share, however, it ended up being quite therapeutic for me.
So, sharing my own is my quiet plea for you to write one for yourself.
This world is harsh and people can be rough with our hearts.
I hope you take some time today to tell yourself that you are so very worthy of everything good in the world.
Because, you are.
