show and tell: my little girl

Show and Tell Chalkboard 2

See what everyone else is showing and telling over at Mel’s.

When I traveled out of state recently to go to my divorce mediation, I had a little secret in my pocket:IMG_0054

This is a picture of me at about years old set in a charm for a necklace.  Here’s a bigger shot of the same photo:IMG_0070 - Copy

I did some inner child work with my old therapist, and way back then she suggested carrying a small photo of myself as a child as part of that work.

I see this little girl as the true me, the me before I started believing that I was less-than, before I started carrying the weight of the world on my shoulders.

The true me is pretty strong, though.  She knows how to love others and herself.  She knows what she needs.  I just have to listen to her.

And not let her ever hear that she is less-than.

  1. I think that little girl has grown up to be a beautiful woman.

  2. What a great way to remind yourself of who you were and what you can still be.

  3. That is a nice idea. You are such a cute little girl!

  4. You are so gorgeous! You take care of that little girl. She’s worth it.

  5. Very cute! You left out how old you were. It’s true. We could probably all benefit from weeding out al that has happened to us in life and remember our dreams of childhood.

  6. Beautiful — I love this. What a great idea. Always remember how strong you are.

  7. You know. You have a very strong voice. You do not sound less-than in any way to me.

    You have a vulnerability, but it’s really an openness. And THAT, the willingess to be THAT, is very powerful.

    How wise to carry around a pic of your inner child. Your innocence and innate wisdom.
