I have decided to write.
Write the thoughts that come into my mind… and there are a lot of them!
Write about life, sadness, joy, happiness, anger, grief… about human emotion.
It has been suggested to me to start a blog – that my words may make a difference for others and for myself too. So here goes!
The Sun Will Rise Again in the Morning, Day by Day, Minute by Minute, Second by Second… I have said this to myself at times in my life. Sometimes thinking anywhere past the next second would be too difficult so I would tell myself that all I have to do is make it to the next second, minute, hour, day and that the sun will rise again. There always was the constant of the sunrise that I could depend on.
This is why I am calling my blog “The Sun Will Rise Again”.
I feel very vulnerable doing this but that is okay. I have realized that being vulnerable is the way to live a joyful life. I just finished a certification process to be an Emotions Mentor. Such a powerful process that has allowed me lots of time to reflect, learn and evolve. During this process there was a discussion that stood out. I do not remember the exact words but the message was that it is not always necessary to share your life story if you want to get out of patterns that no longer serve you. We were told to not over identify with our “stories”. These words stood out for me.
Don’t take what I am going to say next the wrong way as many have shared what has happened to them in their life and this is what they were called to do and was exactly what they needed to do and it has made a difference for so many. For me, I never felt inclined to share everything that has happened to me. We all have our past, our life experiences, that have shaped us to be the person we are today. Some people do not want to share their past because it is too painful and not healing for them to relive it over and over again. Some don’t want to because in sharing, people they care about would be affected and have their life shared whether they wanted to or not. Some simply do not want to. There could be many reasons.
I am sure there are others that feel like me, right? There has to be. The reality for me is that we all have “stuff” that happen to us and what may seem small to one person is huge for the person who experienced it. Or what seems huge to one person seems small to the person who experienced it. You never know what left an imprint in your brain as you grew up. It could be the simplest of words that you heard someone say that have left a belief in your brain that you still live by that does not serve you.
So this is to all of you who do not feel called to speak up about what has happened to you. No matter what it is just know that you are never alone. This is for the quiet, silent person that sits in the back. This is for the person who feels misunderstood or not good enough. This is for the person that does not love themself or believes that they are not worthy or not good enough. This is for the person who knows there is a better way to experience life and needs that little nudge to move forward.
Remember that the sun will always rise again.
