I was just playing piano and singing when I looked up and saw this on my wall. I welled up. The relief I felt when I read it was like water to my soul.
I had been feeling sad the past few days. I kept feeling that the pace of my life and the decisions I am making aren’t moving at a fast enough pace for those around me. That somehow who I am right now is not enough.
I love who I am. I love how I live.
I found myself thinking over and over, “Can’t people see that everything about me is what has led me to this moment right now? That includes the way in which I choose to live, and the pace at which I choose to flow. Don’t they know I have tried other ways before. I am moving at this pace because I am choosing to. It is the best pace for me.”
Then I’d feel sad again. I don’t need to justify anything. The only person who needs to see it and feel the truth is me. Why do I need anyone else to see it?
That’s just a part of Being human 🙂
Knowing what feels right to us, and then living it out simply because that is who we are, is the best! To THEN have people see us shining our light. Wow. I must say, that is pretty cool too 🙂
One of my favourite quotes of all time is by Thoreau.
“If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer.”
Keep marching to the beat you hear.
It is one of the most beautiful things in the world. xxx
