When I was a little boy my mom and dad taught me to color in coloring books. When I was in second grade my mom helped me write my first poem. That was the extent of my artistic success as a child.
Starting in elementary school I felt out of place in art class. I never understood what to do in art. I felt trapped by my lack of understanding how to do whatever we were assigned to do.

How are you feeling? Maybe you’re doing great; maybe not. Many times I feel like that swan in the middle: Everyone is heading in one direction except me.
Sometimes it’s hard to keep focused on the best things in life while every message in print or via the media seems to tell me that what I have is not good enough.
Know what I mean?
In my heart I know I’m heading the right way. For the last several years I have embraced the fact that I am unique. I may not always get it right, but sometimes it’s great to be different.

I’m a mystery. I’m an anomaly. I’m unique. I often choose a road that seems different than the roads others travel or think I should travel.
It seems like the greatest psychologists, analysts, and detectives the world has ever know would have a field day with me.
Why do I do what I do?
It’s obvious that we self-reflect when we make mistakes. Why? Why? Wby did I do THAT?
Self-reflection and assessment is common, and normal, at least for mentally healthy people.

Late Spring is a time for renewal. Everything in my garden is coming alive again. It’s a great time for reflection and self assessment. Through the month of June I’m writing about the importance of embracing yourself, the real, the whole you.
Gathering into yourself all the pieces of you.
