|Return to who you are and live on purpose.|
It is my intention to be authentic and peaceful with myself. I have this choice between being what others expect me to be and finding that place within myself that is truly me. How others treat me has alot to do with how I treat myself. The answer is allowing myself to listen to low level energies of well-meaning but bothersome opinions of others, instead of putting my energy to postive thinking. Change the thought and change your mind. Change your relationships by not giving your consent to be at peace with yourself. I wake up every morning usually with the same ritual of making coffee and letting life just happen. Not actively changing the story, but wondering every once in a while, why nothing great happens. Can I shake it up a bit? Sure, but that is scary. I get in this comfort zone of what I expect to happen today,instead of setting my course off the shore to sail on seas of the unknown today! Even small things can make a difference. Just going out and smiling at ten people that I do not know, I found eight of them smile back and say hello. It's not so scary as I thought. Being shy is frightening when you consider the courage it takes to step out the door in the first place. It has to be your decision, not the kind push of others, for your own good, but you, only you. Taking part of life, the tears, the laughter, and the peace will follow. Turn off the tv, the computer, the telephone and participate in the life of the living once again. Yes, life is hard. It can be joyful or painful. The choice is always yours. I know that no matter what brand of sneakers I am wearing, it matters not, for I am smiling today. This new found freedom is wonderful and I feel no longer shackled by fear. This fear tricks me into believing I need to hide away from life. Fear is an illusion that is a cloud of darkness that shuts out the sun. I only know I wish to live a happy life and stand in the sun. That means taking the risk of finding a dark cloud or two. But there is always sunshine around the corner. Dare to try. Tweet
