What If I Could Fly?
If I close my eyes and dream about flying, it scares the hell out of me. But, if I could just learn to let go of the fear, it would be peaceful and beautiful. I would see the world from a whole new perspective.
This is what life is all about: inner peace and perspective.
Have you ever heard the quote, “when you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change?” to me, this is very true. I have witnessed this many times in my life. It’s easy to get caught up in self-judgment, especially when we live in an industry that is so much about beauty and appearance. But, what if one day we just woke up and we loved ourselves, fully and completely. Everything about us from head to toe, inside and out? How would it reshape our outlooks?
I believe we would reach a place of inner peace, and the way we perceived our world would look a whole lot different. It would be filled with love and contentment.
Every day I focus on re-building myself from the inside out; taking care of my body and my mind as best I know how. From nourishment to movement. Not because I have to, but because I deserve that! Making moments of joy throughout my day to give me something special to fill my soul; to love myself and love the things I am doing. When I shift my mind from outer appearance, to inner peace and happiness, everything seems to fall into place.
Inner peace is probably my number one goal! I want to reach a point in my life of being completely content with myself. And, I am getting there! I choose not to worry about what anyone thinks about me, or the way I live my life. I have learned to give myself time before making decisions because I am not a spontaneous person. To be honest, it stresses me out. I need time to think it over, process it, and then make a decision. Even if it’s something small like what kind of ice cream.
The more I learn about myself, the more peaceful my mind becomes. I have been able to let go of my anxieties altogether by recognizing the triggers, and dealing with them in a different way than I have in the past. This is another step closer, for me, to inner peace.
I have learned to envision the desired outcome to a circumstance, and let go of the fear around it. This makes the process a lot easier and allows things to flow more smoothly. Every day I am learning something new, it’s empowering. And, it feels much more peaceful than just floating through day to day and riding the waves.
If I really could fly, then I think I could also have a magic wand. And, with the magic wand, I would sprinkle fairy dust like Tinkerbell so you could fly too 🙂
