Sometimes the Right Things Just Pop Up
I have been working on doing new things to make changes in my life and health; letting go of the things that I have tried and are not what I need.
This week I have removed one of the parts of my life that was just not meshing with me or assisting me in getting healthy. At first I felt worry about how my children would react, and then I thought about how they are so powerful about making their own good decisions. I let that go.
I thought about whether or not it was just the financial relationship to this decision making the choice for me? Realizing that money was making me let go at this time, rather than allowing me to just drift off course, gave me more freedom to make the decision.
I felt sad for a wee bit and just sat in that feeling and still felt I had made the correct choice.
I moved into my time of meditation, reflection and journal writing and let the guide book I am using right now fall open to a new page – synchronicity – a message from the heavens of just the right words which intrigued affirming thoughts.
I thought I would like to share this reading:
“The history of a life is here, written into cells and carved into skin. My body has memories of its own carried in the tension of my shoulders, in a characteristic way of holding my head, in a crease of concentration between my eyes. My body, absorbing pain and pleasure with equal ferocity, has kept a carful record of the passing time.
“I try to see myself as others see me, to note the crinkles in the corners of my eyes, to acknowledge that the fullness around my hips obliterates every trace of my once –adolescent lankiness. My age is visible in the way I rise from sitting on the floor, the way I collapse into bed at night, in my losing battle with sagging stomach muscles.
“Yet though I am determined to face the ravages of time, when I look into the mirror, I feel touched in the most profound way by the sight of this old flesh-and-blood friend.
“Women have been taught to concentrate on how their bodies look, not how they feel, to see themselves as objects of someone else’s attention, rather than the subjects of their own. And yet the truth is that I know my body from within, as no one else will ever know it. It is adaptable, expressive, and responsive, as if by magic,. It has introduced me to every pleasure, shared in every wondrous discovery. It fits me. And despite all its shortcomings, it has been a comfort to me more times than not.”

I would love to hear your moments of synchronicity or signs that confirmed a decision for you. This one was so confirming to me as I move forward and I was so pleased by its revelation.
Looking forward to your wonderful comments.
