As I ponder my life and listen quietly to that voice inside me I can hear spirit clearly. It is gentle, loving, and accepting of me exactly as I am. Spirit said to me this morning…
…why do you try to swim upstream? Have you mistaken yourself for a salmon? The direction you are meant to go will never drain you of your energy, your happiness, or your vitality. Surrender to the energy of what is meant for you. Let yourself flow with the current that will always take you where you need to go.
Trust what you have learned. Eat whole healthy foods. Drink water. Rest when you are tired. Move your body in celebration of it. Laugh and play. Swim with the current and you will get to your true destination.
Nothing done with force will ever be able to sustain you. Find joy in the journey. Love everyone you meet along the way. Be present. That is the gift.
