Making and breaking

https://healinglifestyles.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/handsbutterflies.jpg

The problem with loving too much is that you don’t realise that while you’re elevating others, they’re breaking you.

You allow people to smuggle you around, as if ashamed of you’re there, instead of being proud of your presence.

We want to believe that karma will compensate our sacrifices and goodness will be returned.

But often we just need to see reality for what it is.

Sentimental blue

She wore it round her neck always. A mesmerising necklace like a lost symbol.

A blue in which you could easily lose yourself in; that made you feel all the sentiments you kept confined with an inexplicable euphoria.

Sweet Melancholy

There’s a sweet melancholy in autumn.

Soothing like the dreamless sleep you drift off on, wrapped in a blanket on the couch.

Fulfilling as the vellichor and perfume of old bookshops.

Rejuvenating like the new plans you wish to forge.

Encouraging for the beautiful things that are arriving.

Still new

It’s the people you meet who change you. Who make you who you are. Who help you see the world differently.

Every person comes into your life and gives you something. Maybe it’s not obvious from the start, but you’ll soon realise it.

We often see ourselves through the eyes of others. And that alters the way we view life.

We too are like pre-loved toys. Previously used, but still new.

That different glow

If you start off with no expectations, you’re going to have a wonderful time.

Remember that.

You’ll find it is true for any sort of travel. The less you anticipate, the more bewildered you become with everything around you. And the more you enjoy your time there. Because you realise you don’t need a lot to have fun.

A walk in the countryside, a coffee by the river, a meal at a cosy restaurant, a couple of drinks with friends. No matter where you are.

You’ll see; you glow differently when you’re actually happy.

A spot of hope

In a desert, finding water is seen as a brim of hope and optimism for life.

The symbol of an oasis is true for our lives in general.

To remind that there is always something good waiting to be found.

Tessellations and all that

Sometimes it’s not that it’s too fast too soon, it’s just that you don’t match at all”. Words of wisdom from a friend. It was another psychotherapy session during a morning coffee routine that proved to be the most liberating part of their day.

The topic was relationships.

When you fit with someone, you tessellate from the start”.

Restless spirits

Nature shows us that life occurs beautifully without constant pressure;

Yet we cannot tame our restless spirits;

Incessantly fidgeting.

It’s coming

Stop. Quieten down for a minute and listen.

Do you hear it?

Wait.

Activate all senses.

You’re bound to feel it.

That uncanny sense that something is imminent.

It’s coming.

Just be prepared.

Breathe.

And above all…

Simply smile.

The most important element

There are four natural elements: air, fire, water and earth. They are mentioned from the zodiac signs, to the Planeteers.

What we tend to forget is that these are within us – our thoughts, passion, emotions, life, but most important of all is our heart; our desire.
