Sometimes showing up for life can seem like a major achievement.
And within that ‘showing up’ we’re showing tremendous courage. We’re not giving up. We’re forcing our way back - searching for meaning, trying to find a new direction… a reason to go on.
I know emotions of failure. I know thoughts - questions: what’s point? Why me? Why now? What is this all about? And I know choice we come to within these questions: do we fall away, a bitter cynic; or do we find our way, make our way back and somehow make our life worthwhile.
Too many days can be spent alone. Too many days can be lost to failure or fear. Too many days can be lost in pity.
The world is changing, life is evolving, every twist and turn on our path can bring us new hope, new beginnings, new love, new adventures. If only we can see that world is not a darkened, hopeless place, put our hearts back into place, remember life is about love we will not only ’show up’ but make our days fulfilling and meaningful.
Rebuilding life starts with a brave look around you. I know how easy it is to be sucked into materialism, achieving, being best, succeeding; and I know consequences of these things: often a shallow, unfulfilled existence where we forget or close down and deny, not only people around us we love and adore, but deny our selves. The world is waking up. Westerners are hungering for meaning and purpose. We want to find reason for life. We’re finding that doing and achieving feels great for ego, but can leave something missing in spirit.
