You know who I am talking to, you are the ones that join me every day to read random quotes and take them to heart, sharing them with those you love and carrying them with on your day’s journey, no matter where you find yourself.
I treasure you because I know you, maybe not personally, but we are from the same cloth, bound together by an invisible thread that connect us. Thread that is sometimes is bare and worn thin but when woven together we are strong.
We listen to the same songs, sometimes again and again because they keep our hearts tender in a world that highlights tragedy and brings to us the worst of humanity, delivered not just to our doors but directly into our homes. We find solace in those songs and they allow us to dream of goodness, true love, happiness and allows us to keep hoping for better.
We read the same books, looking for guidance, looking for direction, the direction that gives us the answers to all the questions unanswered by hollow words that seem to fill the air and the airwaves.
We are kept busy attempting to balance our life. We take everything that you throw at us as if we were born for this purpose alone, while doubting every moment our ability to do any of it “good enough”.
We know instinctively that we are loved by a power much greater than we, but go to bed each night looking for a star to wish upon so that all our deepest wishes, our wants and needs will be fulfilled.
And what of our spiritual enlightenment when the focus has been so long on the physical world, a world that we must manage or succumb to its pull which will result in a slow and painful death to our spirits.
Something significant is happening in the world. Do you feel it too? It is reflected in the people you speak to, there is an understanding that it is going to take us all, working together to change the world but we realize we must first change ourselves. So, many of us are seeking a new way to live.
We are growing weary of chasing “things” our homes already filled to the brim and instead are interested in learning to create a life of substance and simplicity. No longer satisfied to fade into a life we bought into, instead we are deciding to keep what they need in their life, that which will make them happy and fulfilled. A beautiful life created with genuine relationships, a life that allows us to do the work to find answers and follow our passion, listening for what speaks to our heart, locating our purpose.
Begin today. Free your heart. Embrace your loved ones and tell them how important they are to you. Write a note to those who are far away. Eat a healthy meal with your family sitting down at a table with phones shut off and talk with your children and partners about their dreams and wishes. Allow yourself to feel the love that has been kept hidden away for far too long and vow to move into a different direction. Recreate your life and that of your family by making choices with thought and with awareness of the direction you are choosing.
And then stay with me and allow me the honor of proving direction, the direction that I myself moved in many years ago, allowing myself to be captured by those things that are free to each and every one of us ~ Love ~ Peace and Happiness.
Blessings for our safe and beautiful journey, together.
