When I realized that I am the one responsible for my life experience, and that no one can save or enlighten me but me, I decided to scrape together enough self-worth to show up for myself. Realizing that you are worth the effort is the carrot you need to dangle in front of your baggage-laden cart.
Contrary to disassociating, diverting, or resisting emotion, I embrace it. I allow my feelings and emotions a chance to get a word in edge-wise, as opposed to feeding the fire by rehashing a mental story.
Mentally dwelling on a problem can perpetuate feel-bad feelings. Instead, I acknowledge my distressing situation from more of a bird’s-eye view as not to fall submersed into the story. I silently acknowledge, and witness my emotions as they manifest and evaporate.
In doing this, I have stepped up for myself. I’m teaching my mind that the natural process of flowing emotion is not going to endanger or kill me. I am discarding old programming, and installing new, empowering programming. I am clearing my own runway for takeoff.
If you try to get past the storm, you will take it with you. The way out, is through.
A day that I do not take a few moments to silently feel, is a day that I’m not fully going with my own flow. If you try to get past the storm, you will take it with you. The way out, is through.
Today I will stay out of the story, as I silently witness my emotion rise, and fly free.
