We will likely have to go through some heavy moments in our lives, ones that will put us to the test to really stand up for ourselves, for what we feel is right in our life. But I believe these moments can, if funneled properly, push us through to a better place. Even if we don't know what that will look like or who will be there with us.
What scary thing are you going through? Does it feel like you can't see the end of it? Maybe you're in a tunnel... but you are still moving. We are never still. Our lives are never still. Keep going. Keep going. Keep going. And then 'keep going' some more.
But don't rush it. Don't rush the process. Trust it. Then walk it.
Howevery wiggly and windy it is.
All of the beautiful, love-filled, lasting, and authentic things of your life came into your life without your even trying. You were simply being you and they were attracted to you. Even if the timing didn't seem right. But the timing is always right.
So just get on with being 'you.' That's your job. Don't worry about others. And have faith that those things will find you again. Have faith that the beauty of life and love will always find it's way to you even when it feels universes away. Maybe it is in a tunnel. Just not quite ready to emerge yet. Keep going. Keep going. Keep going. And then 'keep going' some more.
There's a light in the dark where the sky splits apart where the stars find a way to shine through all the spaces in between. Yes. Breathing underwater, indeed.
MBR, you're wise beyond your years. HK[isses]
Regarding the craziness of each of our journeys, this reply to a post I saw on SARK's FB page today was simply precious...
SARK: Our healing and changes do not happen in steps like a ladder — they happen in spirals and layers.And today I also saw another link SARK posted that simply rocked my world. Check out Kris' story, her Crazy Sexy Life. Wow. Beautiful inspiration.
A follower's reply: love that! Also loop-de-loops and sometimes tunnels where you can't see and aren't sure where you are going. (Kind of like Space Mountain or other roller coaster).
My reply: a-men!
Different than hers, but I'm walking through a Whiskey Tango Foxtrot* moment. Use these tough 'moments' as fuel to launch you to a beautiful place. But to get there, you must first be honest with yourself about exactly where you are on your path, now.
Where are you standing?
Right now. Not last year. Not next year. But right now.
Where is your 'you are here' on your map? Because it's only then, after you are honest about where you are, that will you will be able to truly move forward in your life. So, keep going. Keep going. And then 'keep going' some more.
Even if it is in spirals and layers.
* See Kris' story. Loved this.
