A flock of birds fly in the sky, in unison they dance to life.
A butterfly flutters by, the present moment is its muse.
You may seek joy in the extraordinary,
But don’t miss it in the ordinary.
Look around and be amused,
Find a reason to feel enthused;
More focus on appreciation
less time given to frustration.
Forgive yourself for your mistakes,
Learn from the experiences for your own sake.
When you feel that life is tasting sour,
Step away and go to happy hour
Or seek delight in a hot shower,
Just don’t give away your inner power.
Once you let go of what was, you can be fully open to what will be. 🦋
Much of our stories and beliefs have clouded our perception from knowing who we truly are, creating an illusion that keeps us from trusting our hearts, because we are conditioned to believe that we are worthy of love if we live up to others expectations, and punished/judged if we don’t.
We only fear love if we are afraid to lose it, but once you realize that you are love then you’ll know you can’t never lose what is always within you. You’ll feel it so vibrantly inside you that you will naturally share it with other beings. And that allows for co-creation and the freedom to be. When you honor your existence, you respect your art, you stop judging yourself, you accept your light and your shadow so they no longer need to battle with each other. You are then able to respect everyone else’s art and expression, knowing that’s an extension of themselves.
We are here on this planet for a short period of time. Everyday we have a choice to renew our vows to ourselves and remain true to our hearts, even (and especially) when life presents us with challenges. We can learn from our experiences and make better choices, and we can unlearn all that has kept us disconnected from our true nature. 🙏🏼🦋🌻
Enjoy the gift of being alive.
Today I drew sand mandalas on the beach to practice being present and releasing stories.
I allow myself to play
and watch the ocean waves
wash the drawings away.
Embracing creativity and flow
I welcome my new skin that wants to glow.
I pray in gratitude
for the beautiful transformation within
as I shed my old skin.
Releasing the past and letting go
what I no longer need I shall forgo.
