So I'm actually seeing now that motherhood has been and is an incredible gift in so many ways. The perfect gift, sometimes wrapped in really ugly paper, but lovely and amazing on the inside when you turn it around and look at it from a new angle.
My five year old asked me yesterday what is inside our bodies. "A ghost?" And I didn't necessarily have a definitive answer for him ... One that he'd understand, and that is "truth."
>>> small steps, in any direction, lead to new understanding. That new understanding is the plan ... To see new things, experience new things, breathe new air.
Anytime is the perfect time. Any day, you can sit down and make a list of the things that you'd like to focus on, the things that you think would add light to your life, and you can begin that day to move into that new energy.
And in the midst of all that is going on, there is this beautiful lovely stillness that I can intentionally choose to step into. And it creates a sense of peace ...
This appreciation is LIFE. It is the energy that creates the expansion that brings more of your desires and dreams and hopes to your view.
For a few minutes I actually allowed that stupid word to make me feel less than, unimportant, not worthy, and invisible. Again.
YOU are the agent, the instrument, the means that expresses this unique spark of the one source of which we are all a part of.
I sometimes imagine standing at the threshold of a vast field of space. Stretching out before me is infinite possibility.
That's the awareness behind EVERYTHING. Every moment. Every contact. Every thought. Every feeling. It is all one.
Guess what happens then? Nothing. The thought goes. I don't activate it further by dwelling on it, thus giving it momentum, I just let it go and I become present. "I am here. This is now."
Nothing outside of me is choosing for me ... every minute of every day I am the one with ALL the power.
You are the one who decides. There isn't someone outside of you telling you, "you MUST progress in this EXACT way and if you don't you're a terrible bad person." There's just your own freedom to choose who you want to be and then either alignment with that or not.
Do you want to be MORE than who you are today? Then everyday make those choices that align with a greater you. And keep making those choices knowing that as you do you are creating that future that you desire and it WILL be.
