Pondering about the word puzzle as well how this resonates within it fell into place so to speak. Like we are walking on the spiral of Life, encountering all these stones along the way we step on. Or bump or toes on. To me, this always has been my way of visualizing it. Every time I stepped upon a stone, or blockade if you will, it was about a part of the puzzle for me to unravel. The challenges it brought up and the way I was able to bring back balance within myself again. This wasn’t about just a one time experience though. It is walking the spiral where all these experiences are showing up, every time bringing up a similar response.
This word frontier as the theme of the Month was resonating, yet it wasn’t clear yet what it would bring up. It’s the final frontier was also the first phase of a television series called Star Trek. I have been watching these movies and the theme song always was deeply felt. The words are calling out to my heart and soul as well the words that come with the final frontier. It’s been a long road. To explore strange new worlds. To seek out new life and new civilizations. To boldly go where no man has gone before. I think it was appealing to a lot of people not just at the time they were released. It still is compelling to many people all around the world. It shows how we like to explore beyond the borders and boundaries as a human race. Yet if we take a closer look, it appeals to the heart and soul as well.
Here is my little self-love poem for you.
A special treat and reminder for you beautiful souls out there.
Accept that wrinkly belly you have
Accept that rounded nose and that beauty mark on your back
Accept your feelings for that person, for that pet
Accept your mood swings
Accept your “dark side”
Accept the wholeness you are
“…You have to stay true to yourself and to yourself only. I know it can seem that you are being selfish or egoist. But actually, there’s nothing wrong with that. Putting yourself and your own love and well being first is an act of love towards yourself…”
I wanted to start this new article with some words from my previous post.
As I already told you, you should stay true to yourself, do what you feel you want to do and do it with love.
But there’s a small risk you could encounter for loving yourself. And that is, that people may think you are a “bad person” because you’re loving yourself “too much”.
But hey, here are 2 things:
Sometimes, if not often, it happens that when we do something for other people we don’t see any recognition, we don’t even hear a simple “thank you”, “great job”, “nice work”. I know we don’t expect anything in particular, just a small appreciation for what we have done.
And because other people don’t appreciate us, or the things we do, we feel angry, mad, sad, sometimes depressed, and we risk to feel worthless. Like we don’t have value.
There may be two people who have been dealt the same cards in life. Two individuals with all the same life circumstances. One is miserable, stressed out, and looks twenty years older than he is. The other is the happiest guy you could ever meet and looks twenty years younger than he is. How can this be? The answer is that it is not our life circumstances that make life difficult rather it is the attitude that we view our lives with. Those who are capable of seeing the humour in life and take life lightly will be able to do the best with the circumstances they have been given.
When it’s time to let go of old grudges
Today started with a walk in the early morning and waiting for the dog to catch up, found myself standing in the Sunlight. Time to let go of anything that might hold me back, old memories of the past 40 years or so which are still lingering. An invite was a trigger to it all. Looking back over the time I have spend, it feels like an old lifetime almost. There isn’t the connection I used to have with a lot of family members as during our marriage till my love made his transition. It also made me think or rather feel my inner resistance if I would accept this invite or not. I was swaying between the yes, you should, and the no I have no need to attend.
