Everyone is unique and uniquely wonderful, in God's doting and creative eyes they are. People as unique as snowflakes. This is an ideal I uphold, to honor others. So why am I teetering on the edge this winter?
The edge I feel is the edge between accepting and exception. Should I accept everything someone does, or should I make an exception? Should I create a boundary that says very clearly, "Dear (or not so dear) one, you have gone too far!"
How important am I in the greater scheme of things? Perhaps not important at all. Perhaps I should let go of the end of my rope and just free fall.
Acceptance and Exception.
I am feeling the need for exceptions because I am not honoring myself.
I am not important in the greater scheme of things, but in my own little world it is important that I hang on. Winter is a good time to begin protecting the boundaries that help me rediscover my hopes and dreams. Winter is a good time to reflect upon where I end and others begin.
Where I end is a good place to begin.
