Once it was only a whisper
persistently reminding me
of an essence I wasn’t ready to set free
once I was too sensitive to the weakness of others
willing to excuse their limited reality
making myself smaller
to not step on their toes
to not be unjust
to others than myself
but not anymore
Destroy the last fragments of acceptance to conform to structures suffocating the truth in my heart
turn my whisper into a powerful song and let this truth resonate through everything I do
cut away my eagerness to accommodate other people’s needs when they merely echo ignorant manipulation
enable me to recognize with all clarity the path I’m walking
and give me the courage to continue forward with open eyes
mobilize all my resources and let them ripple through this world
allow me my softness
nurture my love
remove what doesn’t serve me
Too busy, and also too much in-process these days to actually form original sentences, but I do constantly stumble upon quotes that perfectly describe this beautiful process of life, in me and around me. Like this one..
“If you want to awaken all of humanity, then awaken all of yourself, if you want to eliminate the suffering in the world, then eliminate all that is dark and negative in yourself. Truly, the greatest gift you have to give is that of your own self-transformation.”
~ Lao Tzu
it’s almost time to say goodbye and let go, in gratitude, of yet another year..
it’s been a rough year, so intense and full of challenges forcing me to mobilize all my strengths more times than I can count. and it’s been a year so full of purpose and insight that I can only bow my head in gratitude and feel blessed. no matter what next year will bring, I know it will be magical. probably not easy, but definitely magical.
this year more than ever, I hope we only carry with us the things, and people, that brings us joy and inspiration and love – that serves our progress. so with only one day left of 2013, it’s the last chance to find peace with any conflicts in our lives. don’t carry it into the new year. it’s time to let go and leave behind everything that is no longer serving us. let go of anger and hurt, let go of regrets and doubts. only bring with us the thoughts and feelings that makes us smile, that warms our hearts and gives us hope. I’m sure we all know exactly what to let go of and what to bring with us forward in life.
however you’re wrapping up the year, I hope you will be happy and feel loved and that you will shine like the beautiful person you are.
Happy New Year ♥
it’s okay to be sad
it’s even okay to feel sorry for yourself
once in a while
and then it’s more than okay
to get your ass back up off the floor
and keep moving forward
your life is waiting
and it’s beautiful
