Note to self. Hold everything loosely, plans, people even my perspective. If not, there is a possible chance of receiving when not rendering what I call invisible rope burns to my heart. Eventually my plans, people and my perspective will find a way to break free, when they do, burning occurs.
Rope burn stings and takes time to heal, regardless if it is physical or emotional. Emotional rope burn only feels like I am dying when in reality it is a reminder that I am human. Emotional rope burn feels like I am a victim when the truth is it is a reminder that I held on a little too tight and a little to long.
What if I was created to ride the wave of change? Many times I fight what is a natural process. I hold on until I am about to break myself or what I am holding onto. Really? Change happens every day, I have said it to my children over the years, “it is the one thing we can count on.”
Yet, I find myself still struggling when it comes to the issues of my heart. What if just for today I chose to grip, grab and then let go? What if letting go is actually the key to knowing myself and others well?
I know these truths nonetheless, human nature is to fall back into old patterns. I find it helps when I write out what I am struggling with. It helps when I share with others and find out that I am not alone. Today I am learning to take the cues my body sends me. I can feel it in my heart, head and even my hands when I am holding on to tightly to my plans, people and perspective.
Rope burns are never fun and rarely necessary. Today I am embracing my life motto, “Living in the moment, trusting God with my future.” I will let go so I can love well.
Have a beautiful today my blogging friends. Thank you for stopping by.
