Take time for yourself

My mother asked me why my sister decided to go to her room last night and if she was angry.

After being on vacation for almost 2 weeks, I’ve come to value and truly appreciate the release taking time for one-self provides. I went out of town, postponed whatever needed to be done, and truly gave myself the time, and am still giving myself the time, needed to let go and release what is no longer serving me. I haven’t been answering any phone calls or text messages and if I had to, at a bare minimal. Took time to do the things that I wanted to do and with whom. I read books, finished projects, spend some quality time with the family, got to know a little better a beautiful ray of sunshine that just entered our lives named Lina.

It’s important to cater to your wants, likes and desires because it’s by being your own best friend, lover and companion that you truly get to know who you are. By doing the things we love doing, the way we love doing them, aids us in reconnecting with ourselves. When we are reconnected with ourselves we have a clearer unbiased view of the person we truly are, we want to be and that provides us with a clearer unbiased view of the next steps on the beautiful and mysterious journey we have set forth on. In addition, the responsibility of our happiness is nobodies but our own. It is the key factor on taking back your personal power. Take the responsibility of your happiness in your hands and no none will be able to take it away from you. We have the right to be and feel happy at all times regardless of our environment and/or circumstances. Living in the present moment gives us that bliss happiness provides and is a great trick to come back to. The beauty and miracles the present moment provides us is incredible, take a moment right now, to feel, smell, see, sense everything this moment can provide. Try and see its essence.

Taking time for yourself also helps release any old lingering energies that only weights us down. This is where the beauty of death comes into play, if you let it. Death is not a scary thing, it gives room for new and more exiting ones.

If you feel like just being alone, do it. If you feel like you want a vacation, take it, even if it is simply in your backyard. Even if it sparks up thoughts and questions in your outside world, so be it. It is nobodies business. But of course, kiss your mother’s forehead to ease any worries, they mean well Xox

#LettingGo

Be Free

Letting go is never easy. It’s something I didn’t understand; I still get confused at times. Its only when you start letting go that you realize how much there is to let go. There are so many things that do not serve us anymore but that we still hold on too. Whether it’s a passed relationship, images of past, present and future endeavours of what has, could haves, or might bes. Relationships that hinder our growth, foods and addictions we push our bodies to consume despite the after math, How people think about us; family as much, if not more, then none members. We go to the point of altering our self-image and self-worth as deep as the subconscious level just to accommodate to biased opinions imposed on us by individuals that think they know best. We respond to these out of fears of being judged and most common of then all, fear of loosing the most desired emotion; Love….

And it is there the art of Conditional Love is born. We hide not or impose, not to offend or to validate our feelings. We let our mind consume us, impose our expectations and desired conditions or we tuck ourselves away until we can’t handle it anymore. Then it comes down too, who’s feelings should be prioritized. We are all here on a journey and part of that journey is to strip away all that no longer serves us including some deep ingrained foundations that our lives are build on. In other words letting go.
If we kept these self deprecating foundation women still would not have the right to vote, Gandhi wouldn’t be Gandhi as we know him now and all these amazing stories about people pushing boundaries physically, mentally and spiritually would just be myths.

Letting go is respecting yourself enough to know that holding on will bring nothing. It will only take away your power of loving. Letting go is honouring who we truly are and who we truly are is not defined by the limits we let ourselves or others impose on us. Letting go is freeing yourself.

Enjoy this beautiful and blessed rainy day. Let it wash away all that no longer serve you.
