sometimes it’s when things are the toughest, when things aren’t going the way i had hoped or planned, sometimes it’s when it feels really dark and lonely that i see the light. it’s the light that helps me grow from that adversity.
but sometimes i wonder, where is that light?
if i find myself looking on the outside, looking at all the things wrong in my life, things just get darker. if i look inside myself, deep into my heart, this is where i see the light, this is where i find compassion and understanding.
my heart guides me and i find peace. i hear the owls, the birds, the squirrels that surround me every morning, and i know i’m a tiny part of a giant miracle. i listen to my connection, and i know i’m on the path where i trust and have faith in my journey, and that i’m not alone.
i have so many beautiful souls traveling with me on this same path. as i allow myself to be the student who is forever teachable, i look around me and meet people who are in pain and they remind me to be in gratitude. i look around me and i see suffering, and i am reminded that there are little things that i can do to be of service. i look around me and realize that i am not responsible for fixing it all. it is when i can let go, have faith, and see when i take care of myself, love myself, my soul, my spirit, i am discovering who i am and that i can make a difference.
but i also understand that i’m not responsible for anyone else’s happiness – each has his own journey to the heart to discover.
