@ShashaSelflove 3/28/17 – When I Get There 

Tired is one word I would use to describe it. That sinking feeling that I may never reach the place where I can rest my head and detach from the demands that tug at me. The exhaustion that my heart feels when I look ahead and realize that I have so much more road to travel. Deep breath and a teary sigh give me the energy to push ahead, not sure somedays if I will make it to that place where I am finally home.  

We settle into certain places, seems comfortable there, for the moment we have what we need – whether it be many or a single comfort this place is sufficient.  Subconsciously though, something is triggering discomfort.  The proverbial table keeps getting moved and you stub your toe every time you walk by. Instead of affirming the table or not going into the room, you just keep walking in and hammering your toe against the table. Is the comfort from the rest of the place worth the pain in your foot? Is it time to leave this painful comfort to find a place where you are supposed to be?  

And what if you do find “home”, what then? Well, something happens when you are in a state of mind where peace in your core is finally allowed to live. You blossom, never truly standing still because you continue to grow – your fruit is sweeter, your soul is glowing and those around you can’t make out what it is but the see something different in you. It is a panacea for your ailments, your mind finally has a restful place to dwell along with the rest of you. Home can be anything that provides you with this, you just have to find it and appreciate what it has to offer. 

Stop stubbing your toe on a table that does not hold a firm enough top to rest your fruits. However, don’t turn your nose up at a table that is a little crooked – it might just be perfect for you. Big Hug!

  1. Excellent post! really insightful. Some people say to have lasting peace in your heart one of the things you have to do is learn acceptance. Now I always took issue with this because there are people in our world that live in dire, life threatening conditions on a daily basis. Are we just supposed to accept this?!! Hell no!!! I mean seriously only someone so detached from existence, that nothing phases them, would be able to go through life living in a state of total acceptance of everything. Perhaps sociopaths and other personality disordered people could live this way. Others would say spiritual masters, yogis and such reach some state of nirvana where it’s all good. I don’t know about that, but I do know I’m not so spiritually evolved that I don’t feel and react strongly when I see injustice and cruelty imposed by evil men. Not sure if I could go the Gandhi, or MLK route and lay down my life, only to have everything go to shit afterwards. Racial and religious hatred, intolerance is still very much alive in our world today. So sad, most times history repeats inexactly, sometimes it’s almost exactly the same. We seemed destined to only learn from our collective mistakes at a snails pace, if at all. But my bipolarness has distracted from my previous point. Perhaps in a spiritual sense acceptance means, acceptance of one’s self; not necessarily acceptance of everything that happens in life, but accepting what happens by your own hand. Being ok with yourself, your flaws and all, while trying to do your best. Perhaps when we do this it makes it easier for us to be accepting of others? Again I don’t know, I haven’t felt ok with myself for some time, to keep it real. I try though and I’m improving, maybe… I hope. Ok enough rambling, again great post! Thanks for sharing 🙂

    1. Lol, I just want people to find love and acceptance for them – not what everyone else tells them is love and acceptance. Kind of a custom fit, only for you. Thanks for checking in!

  2. I really enjoyed reading your post. My ultimate goal is to have ‘peace’ in my life. At the moment I don’t really know what that will look like or where or when that will be, but it seems like a good goal to have.

    1. Sorry for the late response, been a little busy. Thank you for reaching out, I really do appreciate it! You will find your peace in what introduces calm into your life. Big hug!
