Wandering . . .
Ms. Healthy Diva Life recently wrote a blog post called Feeling Good & A Little Lost. It does feel good to feel good. It is okay to feel lost. Just ease into the wandering, right!
Talking about feeling lost made me think of J.R.R. Tolkien. “All That Is Gold Does Not Glitter” is a poem written by J.R.R. Tolkien for his fantasy novel The Lord of the Rings.
“All that gold does not glitter, Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither, Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken, A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken, The crownless again shall be king.” ~J.R.R. Tolkien
We all experience that feeling of being lost and at times we may find we lost ourselves too in the process! How do you continue moving forward? How do you get back on track in living your life? This is when you need to take a time out and make time for yourself to do a self check!
Ask Yourself . . .
- Do you know your “whys” when it comes to what you want?
- Do you know what you want to do?
- Do you know what makes you happy?
- Do you know how to release and let go of what is no longer working best for you?
You wonder and wander! It is perfectly normal and okay to not know where you are going at times in living your life. Tune into your emotions and tap into your feelings to connect to your inner being. Really ask yourself the questions above to determine what truly excites you to move your whole being again!
Focusing inward helps you in being aware of your mind and various energies as well as your heart and physical being too! It is perfectly normal and okay to be all over the place. Take the time to stretch your comfort zone in trying new things. Make mistakes to learn and develop. Gain new experiences to experience growth. Really wander!
Look at what you do have in your life! Appreciate and celebrate it. Be grateful and thankful. Each and everything received and given is a true blessing!
My grandmother talked about patience (which I have very little of – ha!). She talked about . . . In having patience you will find your purpose. Challenges, stresses and struggles will test your patience fully and completely. Throughout that test and the test of your patience will come your plan; your game plan, your next plan, etc. You will get through it and become a stronger person for it!
We all grow by experiencing change! Practice to learn, develop and experience. We all change to transform! Practice to progress. We all go through life transitions!
Practice . . . maintaining your center of balance, your health and happiness, and feeling good about yourself and where you are at. Be the Captain in steering your life, especially your healthiness and happiness!
Practice . . . self love and self care and compassion, owning and embracing your messy self, and counting your many blessings. The love you have for yourself matters in being there for yourself and your greatest someones!
Practice . . . sharing, receiving and giving, coming from a place of love, and following your heart and your loves and passions and desires. Really lead with your heart and the rest of you will fall into place and be along for the ride!
Practice . . . that life is not a sprint to the finish line and to take the time to wander, get lost, find your way, and just journey along!
