What is your truth? The playful part of discovering you is deciding right now, what is real.
You may have to follow me a bit on this, as I am currently in my own construction zone. Discovering what is true and real in life, is a huge AHA moment. The realness of life. The truth of life. RIght now, is what is real. My example, is this. spend day after day worrying, overthinking and dreaming only to discover that all that really was real was the moment that I had while I was doing this.
So.... Woosaa. Time to chill and relax. What is real at this moment? To hear life fully let go of what you want for tomorrow. Let go of the story of who you think you are. Do you feel like you are right? Feeling divided? The moment that we start commenting or describing what we believe is the truth is the moment that is disappears.
THE point... if you are having a disagreement about the color of a flower....You are missing the beauty of the flower. It is not about the color or your feeling of being right. None of that matters. The only thing that matters is the moment that you have to enjoy the flower. To get to this point, letting go is mandatory. Gossip and drama does not matter. Angry and hurtful people do not matter. Bills and financial goals do not matter. THE point... is right now all is good and well. And right now is all that matters. It is really hard to find this freedom in thought, it is not overnight. It is easy to backtrack and get caught up in stress and drama, get past it quickly by bringing yourself to the present moment.
I hope that you have a beautiful day, that right now, this very moment, you find some happiness. Put all of your worries away and look around you. It is all right there. Do something you enjoy, find a hug, give a hug. Plant some flowers. Enjoy now, breathe it in. It is all that we have. This moment. :)
Keeping it real...some thing that I have been trying to do lately is that. Trying to find a way to still be myself when nothing is about me anymore. Struggles are so great for everyone and I am sure you have a long list as well. Not everyone is going to have the same challenges in life and sometimes the things that bother us the most are things that do not show up in our photo's. Invisible to others but they continue to eat at our souls until we have resolved them. So this is me , on a day that was nice. It is easy to post a photo after we have done our hair and picked out the perfect clothes, but on this day I did none of the above. I don't live near the ocean. I live on a small street in a small town in Missouri. In a small house. So my outlook is starting to change. Keeping it real. Wearing my sweatpants when I want. Brushing my hair less, maybe even cleaning less. Keeping it all together on the inside is much easier for me when I am not trying to keep it all together on the outside. I love gardening and am going to make this the best season ever, all while making a mess, lol. I read once, that one of your goals should be that when you have people over to your house, they should leave feeling better about themselves, not feeling better about you. And that totally meant why do I spend 4 hours cleaning when I know someone is coming by for 5 minutes? I must be crazy. So here I go, off to work and all the while ...keeping it so real people will be wondering all day what the heck is wrong with me :) and if your feeling the same way.... take the challenge and start just being you :)
