2010–2023 Writings
by Michelle Margaret Fajkus

I have learned that it’s OK to feel whatever I feel.
I have learned that it’s better to follow my intuition than to ignore or doubt it.
I have learned that living close to the Earth gives me the greatest sense of joy and gratitude.
I have learned that learning is a nonstop, lifelong process.
I have learned the art of editing: what is to be shared publicly; what is to be kept private.
I have learned that this too shall pass.
I have learned that everyone is my mirror.
I have learned the importance of being lusciously lazy, doing nothing, relaxing and staying in my pajamas all day on occasion.
I have learned to soften, to listen more carefully, to pay attention to more of the precious details—the butterflies on the path, the buzz of a hummingbird’s zoom, the baby scorpion on the wall, the little girl’s voice, the voice of my own inner knowing.
I have learned that I am love.
I have learned to be more loving.
I have learned to bake fantastic cookies.
I have learned to fry plantains.
I have learnt the differences between British English and American English.
I have learned not to go to emotional extremes (as often).
I have learned to trust in the unfolding.
I have learned to be more patient.
I have learned to hold on to some things and let go of others.
I am always learning.
