Have you ever had things going REALLY good in life….felt like you were shining…bursting with light….inspired…..making things happen… and then something happens where you get the rug pulled out from under you? Took some of life’s hard punches? Got knocked down only to look up and be like wtf was THAT?!?! Yeah, I totally have….and have been like “where did my light go? My inspiration? My drive?? Is this it? I’m I changed forever? Am I ever going to get that light back? Is it gone now? Has what I went through just put it out? Am I changed forever?
Well I will share with you my perspective from where I am at now, which is feeling I’d say honestly maybe 75 percent instead of the 150 percent I had felt before going through a divorce….(and fill in the blank with whatever you went through or are going through for yourself). So, my light was shining, then I felt like I just lost it…it was OUT…my biggest fear being will I ever get it back and accomplish the goals and dreams I had already set into motion but had put on the back burner to deal with the challenge before me?
Here’s what I found so far….that light NEVER goes out….because that light is your soul….and I’m alive in this body (although some days I wonder lol) and so are you or you wouldn’t be reading this right now …so therefore my soul and your soul is still lit and here right now. It may have felt or feels like it was put out for good…but it’s not. And it could have felt like that for whatever amount of time…for me it’s taken 5 years to get back to feeling 75 percent…and sometimes that pisses me off, like have I been wasting my time not living at my best? But you know what? No. I haven’t been wasting my time…I’ve been steadily getting back on my feet…up from being knocked down….building a new and stronger foundation. And when I look back to the state I was in years ago and compare it to where I am now….I’ve come a long way baby.
I think when your light is dimmed it just means it’s the time in your journey that you’re being forced to turn inward….to figure out what the lessons are you are supposed to be learning…to figure out what you are truly made of, and what you really want in life….what’s most important to you. And as you figure your shit out, your light starts to feel a bit brighter, you start to feel that all is not lost….it just maybe changed a bit, has different rules. Once you can accept that then the vision for your future starts to reappear, it really does! And that’s when you start feeling that fire again! And as you do, your light gets brighter, and you can start turning outward to the world again. Although I feel I have so much more to give and to create, I know my light has gotten brighter again or I wouldn’t have the inspiration to send out these letters to you that I hope can make a positive difference in your life!
So please know, your light is still there, and at the right time it will be bright again…and you’ll find evidence in this when you start to feel creative again, inspired again, reaching out to the world again…even if it is in small steps, little by little. Don’t ignore your progress….acknowledge it!
I have faith that I will get back to my beaming 150 percent of overflow!!! And so will you!! Thank you for letting me share my thoughts and lessons and perspectives with you! I really hope you find some type of inspiration you can take and bring into your own life…
-because we are all in this together! 🙂
In my next letter to you… “You are never truly alone…and that goes for those of you who are sitting in a room by yourself right now!”
With crazy love and gratitude!
