I just got back from a little hike in the woods. My feet, and the bottom of my pants are still wet from walking through the creek, hopping from rock to rock. My hair is curly from the wind drying it, and my skin warm from the kisses of the sun. Sweet sounds from The Honey Trees are currently filling my ears. I feel peaceful. I am at peace. I am peace.
Life is every changing (especially mine recently). No one is pulling me in any direction for once in my life. I took control, opened the cage door, grabbed a pair of scissors and cut all of the loose strings, knotted the ends.. and then I flew away. I found myself.. and I found myself nestled in the heavenly mountains of Georgia. In these mountains I found a picturesque cabin that would be the perfect place to free my soul. The perfect place for me to spend my days gardening, cooking, hiking, writing, meditating, horseback riding, kayaking, reading, crafting, practising yoga, and doing whatever else my little heart desires. I should be finding out today if this place is mine. If not, it will be upsetting, but everything happens for a reason.
I sent a letter to a dear friend of mine this morning who is in need of some Love, and in it I quoted a line that I’ve been carrying with me for the past few weeks – “Don’t lose a diamond while chasing glitter.” The way I’ve been looking at it is I am the diamond, and everyone and everything around me is the glitter. I can’t keep chasing people, and places, and things. I need to be here, in this moment, loving who I am, what I have, and what I have to offer. Not only that, but I need to spread it like a pleasurable infection. I’m so tired of distractions, and facades. They drain so much energy, and I’m so tired of being tired.
Happiness is a choice. I hope today you choose to be happy. I hope you choose to be happy every time it is ‘today’. You deserve it.
