I was feeling good this week, then yesterday the clouds hit me. Nothing triggered it, I can’t even say why they came but when they appeared, the tears followed. But today the sun shone, there was warmth in the air and I felt the energy shift.
Sometimes all it takes is a big leap of faith to get over our obstacles.
Like my daughter on her trusty Merlin. A big dose of confidence and self-belief that we can get anywhere, that when we have faith we can tackle any thing that comes our way.
I’ve lost my way a bit over the course of the past year. Sometimes it’s felt as though I’m in a thick forest with no light coming in. It’s been hard knowing what direction to take.
It’s felt gloomy at times, like I haven’t been able to see the forest for the trees. But if we keep looking upwards and with our face to the sky we can find my way out of anything.
Our dog Harry and his pal Louie, are unsure of their footing on this bridge.
We can be too, but we persevere, though it’s not always easy.
I’ll be honest, there are days when all I want to do is have some time alone and go into my shell …
… defend myself from the outside world …
and just savor the quiet.
And there are days I just feel a little bit miffed at life.
… like the frown on my face will never lift.
… and I just want to close my eyes so hard the world disappears.
But things generally turn out okay if I chill out and relax. Not take life too seriously.
Like Harry. He knows … there are those days when we feel we can fly, and we won’t believe anyone who says we can’t.
When we just have to be a rebel, to take a leap and feel better for it…
… when nothing matters but how good the present moment feels, from the wind in the air to the tweets of the birds
… when you look at the world with such awe you become a part of it.
Yes, there are definitely those times that I need to relish more
… when nothing exists but the present moment, and we feel all our worries get picked up and tossed away.
Sometimes the best thing to do is just embrace life. Accept what is. Understanding that everything is as it should be, that we’re all just where we’re meant to be on our journey.
That’s what I’m trying to do.
I hope we all can enjoy each day and moment as it unfolds.
I wish you all peace and happiness. May you all stay safe and continue to enjoy the journey.
