Life has a way of pointing out our weaknesses. Or, maybe we're just trained to focus on them. They just stand out with bold clarity. Often times, they're so bold, that's all we see. All the ways we fail, how frequently we fall short. Those are the moments that take up residency in our minds. They grab all our attention.
We know we shouldn't tunnel our vision, but we do it anyway. And at the end of the day, the week, the trial, we've convinced ourselves that we are not enough. That we can never be enough. It's a crazy cycle. But, it's also real.
Guess what else is real? The power of letting go. The power of taking a step back and deciding to be gentle with your own soul. Because, somewhere along the path, you made the decision to only look at your shortcomings and the ways you are lacking. So, make a different choice. Today.
Easier said than done. Right? Absolutely. Pretty words can only be motivational for so long. I know that. You know that. But, if you're going to let go, even just a little bit, you must choose. Now. To find a way to be kinder to yourself. That's a heavy and intimate internal battle.
There is a way. Mine is different than yours. I haven't found my way yet. Most days I feel far from it. But, I have been thinking about it. Somehow, that feels like the best place to start.
I think you should think about it too. What if we all decided to Let Go together? To look down deep and take stock of all the good we are. To speak softer words inside our thoughts. To have the power to open your vision to who you really are. That kind of courage just might change the world. And your soul.
That feels like a battle worth fighting.
One small, miracle moment after another.
