The ultimate selfie.

December 10, 2014


The word “self” has become one of those nebulous words, these days, like “soul” and “divine.” It has even morphed into the word “selfie?” But who took the picture, and are you looking at your empowered self? Then there’s love to consider. Yet shouldn’t we consider self-love first? For how can we love someone, if we don’t truly know how to love ourselves? We confuse self-love with being selfish. That’s political—and the powers that be wanting to keep us small. What about being selfless? There’s a place for that kind of act in our lives far more than we realize. Yet how can we be selfless, if we don’t  have a strong sense of who we really are?

  1. Hi Gail,
    the subject was so intriguing, I chose to read on and found it was only one paragraph; disappointed! I would love to hear more from you, especially me being a writer scribing out philosophies, psychological and behavioral science issues, it is nice to hear from others’ in full thought.

    Could you expound on your thought, igniting more from us readers?
    Cheers MicheleElys
    PS I do somewhat agree with your Donovan quote. Beatrix Potter wrote, “there is something delicious about those first words one writes, we never know where they will lead us. ;D

  2. Hi MicheleElys, I’m so sorry to disappoint you. My blog takes the structure of short clips with the intention of leaving the reader with more questions or with something to ponder, rather than answering questions. So I wouldn’t write more here. But I do have lots more to say on the subject. Perhaps, we can have a conversation about it sometime. I am very happy to have received your comment.

  3. Another Splendid Gale Harris mind-scape. Like a picture in time… large enough to capture the scene, small enough to leave you looking for the larger landscape. I do have to agree with Michele, I got to the end and had a yearning for more. Much Love, Gale ~Phil // oh BTW… Gorgeous!

  4. Thanks for the feedback, Phil. Maybe I’ll have to do a follow-up post. Generally speaking, I like to give little clips. Like I explained to MicheleElys leave the reader with questions. But I do see both your points on this one. In this post I throw out many concepts that deserve a bit more explanation. You live and you learn. Great connecting here on my site. I appreciate your feedback and love, as always.
