Ok, so a good friend has a difference of opinion with me about something Ms Paltrow has decided should be the next big thing. It's a daft post I put on facebook & I didn't expect to receive as much opposition on my post. This got me to thinking. What is this year all about? Apart from being the year of action, which it quite clearly is. It's also about learning to love a bit more.
I admit I have great trouble learning to love myself & often fall flat at the first hurdle of being able to pat myself on the back. However, I've been through a lot in my life, learnt a lot, got a degree, a few holisitic qualifications, a great family & friends. So, if I am able to stand back & love myself, (or at least try to) then perhaps I should give others the same courtesy, even if I do think they are a bit too media hungry! Does that mean I need to love Gwyneth Paltrow? (Who now likes to Steam her bits, lol!) Or David Cameron who likes to Frack our countryside? (Well, maybe he's a step too far!) However, learning to be tolerant & sending love out to people I don't necessarily agree with could be a good lesson for me to learn, & everyone.
We are all unique. We all have differences of opinion. I am still rocking & awesome even if I prefer to just steam my veg instead, lol! Okay Gwynnie - you go girlfriend! Sending you love & hugs from the other side.
So, just lately I've made a decision in my life which has caused a contradiction to other people around me. It has caused a certain amount of irritation in myself as I am feeling a bit like how I used to at school, like the outsider, the odd one, you know the drill! However, in examining this properly I find myself even more determined to remain different & not conform to other people's standards.
Why on earth should I follow the crowd when I know it's not the way I want to be walking? I may alienate myself my doing so but I have to be true to who I am otherwise I'm just someone who isn't authentic & doesn't listen closely to my own inner voice.
If you have had something similar happen recently, just know this. You are not alone. Don't feel like you have to become one of the 'Sheeple' just simply to keep the peace or to 'fit in'. Be proud to be different. If things don't work out you can always go back & take the other pathway.
Always follow your heart & your dreams because it's those that keep us going. It's those that keep us alive! Without following our true authentic self, then we're just 'going through the motions'.
Have a great day. Namaste. Xx
So, already we are seeing some amazing things occurring for this year. We have spent a lot of time cleansing & going through dark phases during last year. Some good, some felt like it was wading through treacle! However, we are here! We made it. Just for that reason it's good to give yourself a pat on the back!
I mean, Phew!
So what does this year hold for you? Dubbed the year of action, 2015 is shaping up to be a bumper year. All sorts of people are springing into action already. Where as this time last year, I don't think I really had any kind of get up & go. It felt more like hibernation time!
I myself am doing some more workshops & exciting events are on the horizon for this year & I feel very excited about this change. Whatever was holding me back is longer doing so & I am feeling propelled into action. However, we must realise that it still is a full year or 365 days & all of those days don't have to be filled right away. Maybe it's because deep down we know that a Mercury retrograde will come along & perhaps pull on the reins a little. So, when it does come upon us, see it as a chance to take a breather, take stock & admire all the amazing things you've already put into place for this year & try to relax. Meditate & breathe & pat yourself on the back some more.
Life is all about living. It's also about looking, learning, living but most importantly 'be-ing'.
Enjoy your 'be-ing' time!
