This week’s ctworkingmoms writing prompt is the word, embrace. Two thoughts immediately came to my mind– embracing others and embracing oneself.
An embrace… love, comfort, support.
To embrace… accept, hold, value.
When I think about embracing my children, or an old friend, or a close loved one, a smile comes to my face and a calming warmth fills me. The thought alone feels good. And yet, when I think about embracing myself, I do not experience the same sensation. Why not?
Wouldn’t it be nice to experience love, comfort, and support for oneself? Wouldn’t it be nice to accept, hold, and value oneself? I think so.
I guess for me, this month’s prompt is more than writing, it’s a life prompt. A challenge to embrace me. Now that feels good.
