It really is that simple.
To walk away when the words out of someone’s mouth don’t serve me.
To release myself from the grip of another, physically, emotionally, mentally, spiritually, who doesn’t see me the way I choose to show up in the world.
To laugh off the judgment, like water off a duck’s back.
It really is that easy.
It really is that clear.
Things that once weighed down on me for weeks on end,
broke my resolve,
distorted my truth,
are revealed to be what they truly are –
not for me.
And my walking away doesn’t have to be disrespectful or rude.
Just matter of fact.
Because it’s matter of fact that I am my own person and I approve of me.
I like me.
I like me as I am.
I like my path.
I dig my journey.
I appreciate my heart and soul.
I value my thoughts and feelings.
I honor me.
I approve of me.
And that’s a pretty nice space to be in.
A pretty sweet space to live in.
Why leave it to entertain lesser things?
I don’t know why I did for so long.
But no matter, I took all the time I needed to know me, love me, be me.
And I used all the experiences of feeling rejected, judged, unloved, all the relationships that didn’t serve, to know what doesn’t vibe – and what does.
What’s worth keeping, cherishing, allowing into my space and
what’s worth leaving behind, laughing away.
Life doesn’t have to be a struggle to be me.
Life isn’t meant to be a struggle to be me.
Life is less serious than I thought.
A lot easier than I expected.
Can’t say the process getting here was easy but once it became clear and simple,
it sure became easy to know what to move forward to.
And what should I move forward to?
Anything that feels light, full, whole, good, fun, exciting, interesting, fun.
Anything that makes me laugh (which could be almost everything).
Anything that allows me to step more into me, all of me.
Everything else, water off a duck’s back.
Easy, simple, done.
