I read a quote by Rumi the other day. “The desire to know your own soul will end all other desires!” ~Rumi~ 💜
I couldn’t agree more the past couple of months have been a combination of things. More ups than downs but still they find a way to coexist in my world effortlessly, these ups and downs. I get so frustrated by it because I tend to focus on the downs more than the ups. However with the personal things that I have endured these past few years alone, I’m finally learning that I owe it to myself to ignore fear as easily as I did when I first started my writing journey at 11 years old. It’s true life has a way of making us forget to live simply without worry I’d made a promise to myself that I wouldn’t ever let life change my spirit but if I’m being honest, it has some what. Mostly because this change was necessary to grow. I’m getting to a place in my life where I’m coming out from the shadows of fear not just with my creative gifts but with the way I deal with the people in my life also. I don’t view myself as a push over because I don’t let people run all over me. However, I’ve always had a difficult time saying no. Lately though I’ve gotten better about it. Not necessarily saying it but not feeling badly because I said it. Fear ironically can play a major role in how we handle our day to day lives but learning how to silence the voice of fear is the first step in having the life you want also, realizing and becoming your best self!
