My life began in a small country home, with 3 sisters and 1 brother. We lived on a dirt road outside of a small city. I married at the age of 17, became a mother to a daughter and son, divorced after 15 years and I am still single today. As I write and look back I treasure my memories from my growing up years and becoming a mother. When we treasure our memories the treasures are memories that are beautiful and those that are painful. Yet, for all of us whether good or bad, they are what shape us into the men and women we are today.
In the last few weeks, I began to feel a restlessness that arrived at unexpected times of my day. This morning as I started my day this restless arrived again. I stopped what I was doing and decided to see if today was the day for me to understand the meaning of my restlessness. It is the day.
As I looked at photos, the answer arrived with more clarity. I am experiencing restlessness from people from my past, and my current life who are waiting for me to return to the person I use to be. It continued when a gentleman asked me to sit down with him, and he would share with me what I did wrong in the past. Of course I turned him down, because these kind of issues are best for us to meet with people we trust and approach such topics with a gentle spirit.
I smile as I upload my photos to share with you. I smile as the answer to my restlessness arrives. My travels and circumstances changed my life forever, and there is no turning back. It is a time of letting go and moving on, even when others try to hold on to us tightly. Our life is a journey and we change as we experience new things, whether they are experiences of joy or pain! Change is good!
Is there anything or anyone that you need to let go of today? Are you living in a new season of life and allowing others to keep you from the joy of the new season? Do not allow others to hinder your dreams, your desires, and hold on to you as you move ahead. Travel, write and experience each day to the fullest.
