ME vs. me
The day I sat down and looked at myself in the mirror was the day my life changed for the better. I’m not talking about what our darling Cardi B proclaims, “Walking past the mirror oh damn I’m fine”, I mean staring at myself and feeling all the feels I can at one time. Honored to still be alive, but damaged enough to be broken. Excited because I see the growth within myself but disappointment because I am not where I want to be. Ya know what Ella Mai sings… Feelings…. So deep in my feelings! When was the last time you have taken time out to feel your own feelings.
Let me rephrase.
When was the last time you sat down and really mentally picked your brain about YOURSELF?? Acknowledging the pain, disappointments, heartbreaks, fears, and then completely letting them go? The letting go is the hardest part. Recently, I have been doing A LOT of shadow work and one major idea seems to stick out. Understanding yourself is the most rewarding yet emotionally challenging situation I have ever had to endure. I find those moments of clarity and understanding can be so gratifying yet overwhelming. Because when you are in tune with yourself your body literally repels anything that does not serve you. What a blessing.
But to tap into that requires spiritual healing. No ifs, ands, or buts. In order to willing and ready to purposely let go of pain, know it takes vulnerability,endurance, and consistency. But you can do it, just put your back into it! Or whatever Ice Cube says.
Peace and blessings.
