As January comes to an end I thought I would include some different content and start a mini self care/self love series. I thought that as someone who loves to read the words of others I would share with you some words of my own. This one holds a strong place in my heart I hope you enjoy!
Sitting here on the beach staring in to nothingness.
For the first time in forever with No headphones, no book to get lost in. Just me, myself and I. I have time to think. Maybe not think, reflect is a better word.
I have always struggled to let things go. Whether it be people, memories or mere moments that have had an impact on my life…
But as I sit watching the ways flow in and out I begin to understand the power of letting go.
The waves deposit new stones on the shore front by sweeping away the memories of the ones before.
Just like the start of a new day, we don’t know what each wave is going to bring.
But isn’t that just the magic of an everyday thing.
We never know what tomorrow will bring.
So why hold on to the things that chain us to the memories and worries of the day before.
Why do we not act more like the waves that sweep in day in day out and lest that it is okay to let go of the negatives.
Letting go of the negatives brings room to fill our lives with the magic of the unknown.
I know it’s hard… I struggle just as much as you. But when it gets tough and the thoughts of the past that don’t bring us warmth and abundance just get a little to loud.
Picture yourself sat on your favourite beach or anywhere that makes you feel safe. Picture the waves drawing in and out but every time they wash out to sea let it take with them all the memories.
The ones that fill you with dread and anxiety. The ones that do not have a place in the life you wish to create. Watch them wash away with every wave that is drawn back into the sea. And with every new wave picture everything that feels you with warmth and happiness. Things that bring you joy and motivation.
For you are in control of your own destiny let it be the one you spend your days day dreaming of!
It is okay to let it go!
Let me know what you think of this! It is a little different from me and I would love your feedback.
