I stumbled across a field of beautiful yellow flowers and the only one really caught my eye. This flower sparked something within my heart/mind; an old memory of being scared to walk in my own truth. An old memory of feeling misunderstood, a feeling of being comfortable living in my own shell. But this flower that really caught my eye was the most beautiful flower of them all because it also reminded me something else.
It reminded me that the world needs me to be me
It reminded me that the world needs me to express myself wholeheartedly and fiercely. It reminded me that I need to be honest and vulnerable with myself. That I needed to break down my walls. And that I don’t need to be scared of the perceptions others have of me. Because you see, what do I see when I look into that mirror? Do I see someone that is molded, conformed to something I’m clearly not? Someone who wants to please others all the time to hide the real me.
Or do I see this young woman who is turning back to her natural state of being – home. A young woman who is opening up to all magical things in life? The red flower reminded me that I have to celebrate this unique expression of the creator. An expression of me being the woman – I am right NOW.
When you open up
When you open up, you are creating space for others to open up as well. Not everyone will understand your path but how will people find you if you keep these walls in front of your uniqueness? Find the others. Find your soul tribe.
From my heart to your heart.
Blessings on blessings..
