Here’s a post to reach your heart. It’s long YES. But take the time to read through it. 🙂 Every last word is important, as it will help you reveal the person you truly are, in ALL your colorful glory. I was inspired by this pothole filled with rainbow fluff….seriously, ALL potholes should be filled with this stuff. ;) We could use a little more CoLoR in this world.
“Waking up to who you are requires letting go
of who you imagine yourself to be.”
Just be yourself…a notion most of us have heard countless times. It’s a great idea in theory and sounds like an amazing thing to do. But it can be hard to know what on earth this even means!??
Simply put…..our real self is that which we are when we let go of all the stories, labels, and judgements that we have placed upon ourselves. IT is who we naturally are with out the masks and pretentiousness.
It is who we are when we let go of the stuff that others have put upon us.
Below are TWO things you can do to help you find the path to your true self. 🙂
ONE: Get in touch with your inner child:
If you ever take the time to watch young ones, you will no doubt notice their freedom. They don’t worry about what others think of them, they simply live in the moment.
They are free and true. Not yet have they been socialized to “fit it”. They don’t care when others think they are silly as they dance around in the front yard for all to see. They are pure, unabashed, and exude excitement.
Take time every day to be even just a little bit silly. Don’t worry what others think. Play, have fun, enjoy the moment, and maybe even dance around in your front yard. 😉
TWO : Become more aware of your thoughts:
It may surprise you how many negative thought creep into your mine on a given day. If we don’t realize and eliminate these thoughts…..our reality begins to take share based on these detrimental thinking patterns.
Increase awareness of the quality of your thoughts. Take time each morning before your day gets started, and sit quietly as you toss the negative thoughts swirling in your mind and replace them with positivity.
Yes, thoughts will come and go, but just allow that to happen. Don’t get attached. Just observe. When you are finished, continue to observe your thoughts throughout the day.
We have many unconscious beliefs that we have nurtured throughout the years that took part in developing who we believe we are. Sometimes…these beliefs are all wrong!
Gaining awareness of your thoughts, abandoning the old, negative beliefs, and becoming more present can help to reveal your true nature.
You are SO much more than those old, worn out beliefs would ever allow you to believe.
Be true to YOU. You’re amazing.
