Flight of a Gentle Soul

We are the ones who walk softly. We are on a journey to peace. We are searching for an inner calmness and harmonious relationships with others. We don’t ruffle feathers. We’ve learned when to walk away and when to allow others into our space.

We quietly lead by example. We make no demands. We just are. And when we are noticed we experience a bit of discomfort. We downplay compliments. We might find it difficult to stand up for ourselves.

Many of us have been accused of being too sensitive or overemotional, often resulting in shame of our own authenticity. While we take what others say to heart, we also see things from all perspectives. This very thing we struggle to come to terms with is our power. This journey of self-acceptance is the flight of the gentle soul.

Speaking your soul truth is difficult for someone who wishes to hide in the shadows. Claiming your voice is necessary for growth. When you stand your ground you validate your spirit. Everything changes when you learn to fly.

There is a saying that a comfort zone is a beautiful place where nothing grows. My soul dwelled in that comfortable nest for way too long. I had no idea the freedom and bliss which comes with being authentic without apology.  As I continue to come into me, it is my hope these words will lift your wings as you come into yours. May we all soar.

Speak your soul. Live your spirit. Love your life.
