It has been an amazing month. For years now, I have been on a journey of self discovery. In the last month, I have finally connected to parts of myself that have been lost for a very long time. I have discovered so much of who I am – the song of my soul.
In connecting with those pieces of myself, I have found that I have much less need for fear and anxiety. I haven’t completely parted ways with them, but I am finding that my instinctual reaction to them is changing. For as long as I can remember, I have allowed fear and anxiety to dictate my actions and responses. On many occasions, they have stopped me from pursuing what I want and need. But, not any more.
When fear and anxiety have shown up lately, I have found myself taking a deep breath, and saying, “No, I enjoy this, and I know I’m capable.” I have experienced so many new things this past month. ‘Enjoying the journey’ is looking pretty good right now.
I have also let go of my need to live up to other people’s expectations. I have discovered that the cost of living in that space is just too high. I want to experience the value of living my life to the fullest – to follow my heart. I have realized that God wants that for my life, and I have been the only person stopping me from experiencing that. It is my life. It is my choice.
I choose freedom. I choose wholeness. I choose to listen to the song of my soul. It is a beautiful sound.
