My name is Shannon Mujica. I am a lover of love. I think the site is beautiful and I’d love to contribute.
I fell in love with myself 6 months ago.
I didn’t feel the swirly buzz of a love-struck poet
I felt loss and I cried for days, weeks, maybe a full month I’m not sure but I let go of everything that was holding me down. I said my goodbyes to the people I clung to so tightly I was sure they would always drip from my limbs like sap on tree bark.
I fell in love with myself
I walked in the open air and laughed at my own jokes, I cooked delicious meals just for me, I devoured books, I forgave myself, I practiced being kind… to ME, I opened my heart and poured out my requests to the universe because I deserve LOVE.
I slowly emerged from my cocoon and opened my beautiful Mariposa wings. I sat in the sun as they dried and my colors became vibrant
I felt beautiful.
I felt LOVE
I remained open and watched as the world changed around me. Light swirled and my inner song played so loudly that I danced freely wherever I went.
Being in love never felt so right .
