The Load You Carry

The Load You Carry

“I took it off.
I did not want to carry it with me anymore.”
― AvaYou Are Safe Here.

 

She always looked like she was in so much pain and agony. They judged her by the weight she was carrying on the outside but those who really knew her knew it came from the crown she wore on her head. Often the crown we carry on the outside can never compare to the crown that we carry on the inside……….

CROWN:

of disbelief

of grief

of doubt

of misunderstandings

of worry

of fear

of failure

of hurt

of pain

of confusion

of a broken heart

THEN:

She realized that the way she was carrying the crown was too much. It was weighing her down…….Image result for heavy crown on a head

 

So she took it off!

Tapping in…..

Tapping in…..

“For the person with creative potential there is no wholeness except in using it.”
― Robert K. Greenleaf

 

I was never able to tap into the creative nature inside of me until I learned:

To let people go

To let people grow

To not let everyone’s problems become my problems

To not be everything for everyone

How to forgive

How to live

How to place my needs before others

How to take the time to celebrate me

How to rest my mind

How to rest my body

How to enjoy life

How to smell the roses

How to enjoy each day for what it was

How to go off and enjoy my own company

How to ask for help instead of everyone asking me

How to stop people pleasing

How to cry if I’m hurt

And laugh when I’m happy

How to sit in solace and be content

It’s time to take the tattered pieces and create something beautiful!

Your life is your canvas pull out your utensils and put them to good use!!!!

Who’s your influence?

“One of the greatest regrets in life is being what others would want you to be, rather than being yourself.”
― Shannon L. Alder

Yesterday… (Insecure)

You took a step I took a step

You drank I drank

You cursed I cursed

You stole I stole

You lied I lied

You cried I cried

You were lost I was lost

You chose red I chose red

You gossiped I gossiped

You got angry I got angry

You were happy I was happy

You lead and I followed

We shared one brained because you were my influenceinfluencer

Today….(Certainty)

I don’t look like you

I don’t act like you

I don’t want to do what you do

I don’t want to be what you are

I don’t like red I like purple

I like to laugh and be happy not angry

I like who I am!

I was created to lead and not to follow

Life is too valuable to conform to the image of someone else

conform
