Peeling Back the Layers – Part 2 SheryLeigh December 6, 2016 A Faith Walk, A Love Jones, Dream Chasing, Sheryl's Pearls Blog, Spoken Word & Poetry, This Thing Called Life 1 Comment During the month of November, I participated in the 30 Layers 30 Days Writing Challenge. These are my postings from the second half of the challenge. View postings from the first half in Part 1. Day 16: Describe Him Day 17: Rather Not Know Day 18: Endings Day 19: Too Little, Too Late Day 20: Six Months Ago Day 21: Not Here to Stay Day 22: Pillow Talk Day 23: Use Me Day 25: The Unexpected Day 26: Moonlight Day 27: It’s Complicated If you asked me months ago, I would have described our relationship as complicated. While I recognized a few attributes, I was focused on what I considered failings. I was disappointed that it did not respond to my touch, frustrated by what I perceived as its high-maintenance neediness. But when I began to demand less and listen more, my hair opened up to me. When I abandoned comparison and harsh criticisms, when I learned to speak its love language, it blossomed in ways I could not have imagined. Our relationship is neither perfect nor complicated. It is a process of learning and loving, a journey to acceptance. Day 28: A Magical Morning Day 29: Secret Strength Day 30: How to Love Her If you happened to notice, I skipped Day 24. I could not think of anything and I am learning to make peace with the days/times in which, basically, I got nothin’. Photo by Simone Dalmari, Unsplash.
