This new Me

A Poem by Shandra Sun

New beiginnings are happening all the time.

This new Me


Now and then I meet this new Me.
A quiet friendly stranger, walking in my shoes, smiling at everything. She seems to have won being herself and there is so much life beaming from within. Her presence is serene, vibrant, no wishes, no needs, no sorrows, no regrets, no "what if's". She is the unique gifted being I've always wanted to be.
Now and then I meet this new Me.

This is very inspiring! Your self reflections mirror back the most important aspects of learning to be comfortable in our own skin, not superficial stuff, but deep meaningful observations. Yet, I also feel a bit of hesitancy, which is normal & expected . . . none of us can ever feel totally secure that we've gotten on this path & that we'll stay there. Life is full of trickery that can bring out the worst in us, so your brief uplifting piece also reminds us to refresh our commitment to being the kind of person we want to be (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

This is a nice, positive poem that holds off that little sliver of darkness that tries to engulf us. Great work. CD

Gee
I think we all have a "new me," seldom met but often dreamed of.
Good morning

Hi there. Thank you for taking the time to review.

"SHANDRA"
(to a free spirit)

Shandra used to bounce along
like a little child
... then ...
her eyes sparkle
and
a woman emerges.

A spirit like hers
needs to be free …
to fly to the winds
and chase a kite.

It would be unfair
to hold too much of her
to one's own breast

~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~

Sorry, Shandra,
Your deeply moving prose of greeting and enjoying your new self, inspired my battered olde pen to jump-up and perform a little poetic Klompendansen. : )
I agree with You, there is nothing like catching a fresh mental and emotional breath that reenergizes one's heart, mind, and soul, in such a way we feel reborn into a sense of happiness and wellbeing … these times should be many, not too far apart; and, I can easily see you wrote this piece with a smile and soaring spirit.

I love your picture choice, because it makes me want to skip and run through a field of flowers, too.
Beautifully and creatively penned, Shandra … thank you ever-so warmly! ⁓ Richard 🍃

Hi bunny. Nice to meet you too.
An uplifting little poem. We need to truly be ourselves. Sadly many of us hide behind masks. Do away with the masks I say, let's see the real people. Nicely penned Shandra Sun.

You are welcome Shandra.
Isn’t it wonderful how we re-create ourselves? And, yet we tend to slide back into the old characters we once played.

I truly enjoyed this brief, insightful piece. Bright, cheerful and still raw genuineness.

This content is too good to have such trash formatting. Try spaces so it is easy on the readers eyes. It needs a makeover something fierce. Great content though.
