We all have cargo. We all come carrying stories on our shoulders. We all come burdened with raw emotions we have not been able to leave behind.
We are all heavy in our own way.
We keep so much inside the universe that we are, afraid of being misunderstood, criticized or judged. We are afraid of losing… of hurting… of being hurt.
Who can we tell all our secrets to? Who can we trust? Who will listen without judgement?
We have been taught to bottle up our feelings. We have been educated to believe that sharing our deepest emotions is a sign of weakness.
What are you hiding? What are you not telling? What are you ashamed of? What are you afraid of? What is YOUR truth?
Own it… and share it with someone you love today. Let’s change how we communicate.
Let’s never have an empty conversation again. Let’s never bring up the weather. Let “small talk” cease to exist. Let’s get real. Let’s go deep. Within ourselves and our relations with others. I believe we are all here to relate. So let’s do that.
Let go of your fear, your anger, your shame and make room for the love, for the beauty.
Unburden yourself. Lift the weight. Shake the heavy off.
Be unapologetically you.
As long as you’re alive, eventually you will get hurt by someone. I used to think that wasn’t true. That eventually you could find someone that would NEVER hurt you. Now I know that i’ts not even about that. It’s not about finding the perfect person, it’s not even about being the perfect person. It’s about accepting everything that happens to you and being the person that stands up. Life is not about falling down, it’s about getting back up. What really makes us who we are is not the person that broke our heart, but the person we became after our heart was broken. Every second, we are given a choice. How you react to something makes all the difference in the world. You could choose to shut the world out, be angry, resent ever letting your guard down, make a vow to never trust another human being again… but who is that really hurting? No one but you.
As much as it hurts, as uncomfortable as it sounds… To love. To truly live and love… you have to give of yourself. You have to expose yourself, all the pieces of you.
In the end, all of this… our entire existence and this world of ours is pure energy. If you close yourself up, you’re balling your energy source up and creating an invisible barrier to all the forces outside you… No love going out and no love coming in.
You are a beautiful soul, an amazing human being. What you’re going through is temporary. It’s a stage, a phase. There is something wonderful waiting for you just around the corner and it’s going to show up when you least expect it (like it always does) and when it does, what are you going to do?
Are you going to hear the knock and open the door… or let it pass you by and tell yourself you’ll get it next time?
There is no sense in waiting. Your life is right now and as I’ve always said…Love is what it’s all about. If you are blocking any kind of love from coming through your door, you might want to make an exception today. You never know how it could turn out.
