A Day, A Month, This year 2013
Each year a bird either deconstructs their previous years nest, or they create a whole new grassy abode. They know just what to do and how to do it. Creative little nesters!
It's a good and healthy practice to regularly re-evaluate your life and the place where you live. To ask yourself, am I still content? Do I feel the need for change? Are we still here or do we see bigger opportunities just past the treetops?
There are other questions as well. Like, Do I prevent greatness by coddling my own personal fears? Fear, in my book should be considered a disease. Something to be diagnosed, treated, and hence forth rehabilitated. It shreds your insides to pieces. Fear brings with it so many other symptoms, it's just the first domino to a whole mess of dominoes that slam down upon each other.
It's okay to be vulnerable (when your safe), it is when we let down our guard that goodness seeps in. Like the water that splits stone, it pushes all the bad out of the way - only leaving room for the right things you need (and personally choose) to put into your life. Sometimes holding onto things can only increase the fear discussed above.
It's a cycle, break it.
~ NOW ~
I ask... why tread lightly where tiptoeing begs to be heavy foot falls? Why stand alone, when you can hold onto another? Why linger in doubt, when you can linger in living life out loud?
Live LOUD - Split the stone - BE the water (dammit)
I have been casting out fear for about a month now. Choosing to return to my past personal motto of "No one said I can't, so I will"... and that is because I am capable of ANYTHING, and so are you! Somewhere, somehow I lost myself. Cast out good people, good things, and let the negative in (lots of it, cause negative brings friends). We all do it... I'm not afraid to admit to you today that I am guilty of such things.
That's right, little miss sunshine once in awhile sticks her head up her ass!
So I stand here, a creature of the sun - arms cast outward in full surrender. I invited myself back to the party, and holy shit I showed up! Not only did I show up, but I was (and am) the coolest person at the festivities! Anyone bring refreshments? This post has me thirsty!
All jokes aside though...
I'm performing a personal exorcism, and I'm not afraid. I go forth chest puffed out like a robin at dawn. I claim what is mine, who is mine, and march like a soldier manning up for war. I take ownership of things I have done, the person I have been, and the person I am striving to be.
I know where I BELONG. I know where I want to BE. I know who I am meant to be WITH.
Have you evaluated lately?
