Well: I am getting there

For years, I lied to myself
believing that acting well enough was
surely as good as being well.
But acting is not good enough.
Now, being well is better; necessary.
Much like a well, I have
gone deep to find the good
that was always within me; unfulfilled.
That change has come about with
sacrifice, heartache; for me, for us.
When I am with you, love,
my heart is a bottomless well
of passion, of gratitude, of abandon.
Because of in spite of me,
with you, I'm better than well.
With you, I can be me; authentically.

Are you well?  Want to tell how?  Visit Melissa at Making Things Up and join in Six Words Fridays!


  1. partnership can make us work harder
    at living well and being well.
    i couldn't agree with you more!

  2. So beautiful. Looking deep within and bringing about change are always a wonderful process that brings us new light and love. Thanks for sharing.

  3. I feel much the same way. Beautiful.

  4. authenticity is where it's at! I struggle with that, too.

  5. Awesome! The best way to be "well" is certainly to be authentically yourself.

  6. Going well-deep: good for you.
    It's hard to plumb the depths.

  7. To be your authentic self - what a relief! I know the feeling well. (pun intended) :)
