I didn’t come down to be all these mother fucking excuses… NO MORE!!!
I push all the stories aside and go back to being me…
I wrote these words last night in a journal entry and bloody hell was it like a dam broke and I felt free.
Too many times we get caught up in our own shit stories, in the stories we hear from others, in society and how we should or shouldn’t be… but if you only shoved aside the excuses and pushed aside the bullshit and was just YOU… the world would be your oyster!
That is not to say that these wonderful excuses and stories would just fade away and you would have a fairytale existence for the rest of time. But it means reading those lines over and over to yourself when stuff does pop up and choosing to not live in them anymore. And by live in them, I mean the set-up tent and live there, as opposed to the recognizing and working your way through them.
When you are seriously ready to give yourself that green light – it can be as easy as simply saying NO MORE to yourself, and sometimes it needs a little work – in the way YOU need it. Not what is meant as the norm, or what well-meaning people tell you. For sure take it on board, but then go within and find that magic prescription that is the right bomb just for you and go blast all the shit away.
It could be taking some hints and tips from this person, that person, that post over there that reaches into your heart. But ultimately you know deep down, you just got to find it. Or more to the point be WILLING to find it.
And sometimes it simply is as easy as saying NO MORE… over and over and over again.
Lets face it – we are souls sitting in a human body whose primitive function is to keep us safe. So if you have ever felt anxious/scared/ worried about anything, it will latch onto that little tidbit and then go waaay out of its way to keep you safe. BUT and I say this with love and kindness – YOU can choose to say that this or that is in fact safe and push through to the other side. So the never ending NO MORE (or however you want to phrase it) needs to happen so that you can start training that part of you to recognize that not everything in this world is big and scary and going to eat us.
What is most important, is you are setting your soul free of its little golden cage and you are allowing the real you the go ahead to shine fucking bright. Like epically bright. The you before the shit storm that is life, the you before you hammered yourself into a little corner and can hardly even remember who you really are any more. Possibly connecting to a part of yourself that you haven’t even really met before.
Being true to you is the single most important thing you can do. Living your life’s purpose without restriction is the bestest, most on point thing you can do for yourself.
It can also be the hardest, if you make it that way.
Follow what feels right for you, again some people’s prescriptions may be utterly on point for you and some are not. March to the beat of your own rightness and take what you need and leave the others behind.
Again, when you really feel into it, you know what feels right for you and what feels a little icky and not quite fitting.
Listen to your body when you try something. Try it out for a little while to see if it feels right. Try something else or a combo.
Do what you need to do to shine and prosper and the world will be your oyster, your own Disney land and every other loveable thing.
The world doesn’t need you to fit into a box, or a circle or a certain label – it just needs you – unapologetic, raw YOU!
So set yourself free and feel that relief that comes with knowing you just need to be you and go forth and SHINE.
Till next time… keep walking your spiritual path xx
