“It doesn’t matter whom you love or where you move from or to, you always take yourself with you. If you don’t know who you are, or if you’ve forgotten or misplaced her, then you’ll always feel as if you don’t belong. “ ― Sarah Ban Breathnach, Moving On: Creating Your House of Belonging with Simple Abundance
There are times we feel empty, unaccomplished. We wonder why we feel stuck. Perhaps we only feel like we aren’t moving forward because our interpretation of our life is skewed.
Seriously, sometimes we look for the wrong things; therefore we don’t see what really matters. We forget we have a better vantage point looking from the inside out, rather than being the stranger looking at us from afar. We are able to see within the origin of all that has come from us.
The truth is we felt the love, joy, heartache, sadness, and confusion. We heard the voice that prodded us along. No one experienced what was sacred to us. They only surmised from the reflection we cast.
We have the ability to sift through our lives and find the beauty within. We tend to pull in our scattered petals; discarding the imperfect and pinning the unfurling flowers upon our shoulders. What will it take us to realize it is the whole of us that makes us beautiful and unique? And all the while we are questioning ourselves; we go on living, fulfilling the promise of life before us…and we don’t even realize it.
What if for one day we went about our business unconcerned with what others thought?
What if for one day we felt complete beauty, untarnished by shame or guilt?
What if for one day we were committed to only what truly mattered?
What if for one day we didn’t question but trusted our souls?
What if for one day we loved ourselves as God loves us?
What if for one day we embraced our uniqueness?
What if for one day we lived as if it was our last?
What if for one day we felt we truly belonged?
What if for one day we only loved?
