It’s easy to feel alone in all the hustle and bustle of every day life
Even when surrounded by others…
truth is, journey is individual
walking alone at times builds character and richness
time spent alone allows for in depth research
I’m beginning to realize that I truly am one of a kind
knowing and believing are two different things…
My belief is becoming grounded
I am becoming free…
free of the shackles I placed upon myself
free of the box I created to surround myself
free of the person who no longer serves me
my authentic me….
Today I went to my very first therapy session and I went on an online dating site and actually posted a profile (or at least started). Baby steps or huge strides? I dunno yet. Time will tell. I’m pretty tired so I will just share the “take action” right now, then elaborate later. Wish me luck!
My yoga instructor shared this in class today. Ironically I’ve had this book by Don Miguel Ruiz on my bookshelf for years and haven’t read it. Now is as good a time as any. I have truly been in life reflection mode this month…this new year of 2013.
The Four Agreements are:
1. Be Impeccable with your Word: Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the Word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your Word in the direction of truth and love.
2. Don’t Take Anything Personally: Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.
3. Don’t Make Assumptions: Find the courage to ask questions and to express what you really want. Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness and drama. With just this one agreement, you can completely transform your life.
4. Always Do Your Best: Your best is going to change from moment to moment; it will be different when you are healthy as opposed to sick. Under any circumstance, simply do your best, and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse, and regret.
Powerful words to live by!
