Appreciating Our Freedom

January 29, 2013

This day is brand new. This moment is fresh and clean. The future is a blank canvas that is ready for you to create. Life is filled with twists and turns that often derail the best of souls. Resolve in this moment to continue your journey by honoring the gifts you have been given. If you have fallen off the path, decide to reestablish the connection that fills your heart with gladness. It is never too late to realize your soul’s intent and purpose. Do not let “time” fool you into a state of despair. You have the ability to reunite.

The question is how?

By embracing all your experiences (yes, even the bad ones), you strengthen your self for the journey, this time with a better outcome. Appreciate the difficult times, for they often set you back in the correct direction with your life. Appreciate what you have set in motion, while taking your mind here, taking your mind, heart, and soul to the next level of participation. Appreciate the day in the moment. Dwelling in the past makes it difficult to create your future. If you have pushed the boulder uphill without struggle, appreciate your own tenacity. If you have pushed the boulder uphill and still have not succeeded, examine the worth of the bolder (not your own).

Sometimes it’s better to let go, allowing the bolder to roll back down the hill to find a better connection. This releases you to travel up the hill with ease. Fill your moments with expectations, for when you reach the top of the hill, there is unlimited opportunity. You may find the bolder really wasn’t necessary at all, and that the important moment was your sense of freedom.

Appreciate the freedom.
