Breathe and Say “Yes, this.”

Has this happened to you? You feel anxious, exhausted, tired, mad, weepy, over-working and under-resting. Like you’re paddling upstream but staying in the same spot. 

This year has been filled with personal and professional milestones that I am proud of, but honestly, am surprised after all this I can’t seem to shake the monkey of “not good enough” from my back. 

Walking home tonight after a stroll through the lights of my city of Boston, listening to music I’ve not heard in a while — I got a moment of deep clarity. 

And what I realized was I am so far off my center of balance, I am suffering from it. I am feeling the effects of what happens when I try to control and seek approval from outside my own heart.

And then like little verses popping up out of no where, my head began to fill with the following:

Offer, never request.
Give without requirement to take.
Create without any purpose.
Receive without exchange.
Believe without faith.
Give space without defending the border
Trust, hesitate – it doesn’t matter which one –
Breathe and say “Yes, this.”

Nearly automatically, the little ball of anxiety that has been in my chest faded. I felt lighter, like the street got wider as I walked on home. I felt for a moment what I really needed: that I was receiving and creating my life simultaneously.

I share this because I want to be helps me to stay grounded with MY truths above.
