the wave of memory.
but stay on your surfboard.
most people look back
if i would’ve…..
painful reminders of
what we think are our mis-takes or shortcomings
are all part of the process of growing ourselves.
it’s easy to self-judge
but we cannot judge ourselves
for the choices we have made.
yea, things might be different if we chose a different choice
but we can’t linger in those thoughts.
when we dip in to our past
we can easily be re-traumatized.
the circumstance or event can feel like it is happening again
right here and now.
that’s how powerful our emotions are.
some time ago
i made a commitment to myself
to trust that i always do the best that i can
in any given situation.
i keep moving forward
adjusting my choices in the NOW
to what feels good.
this releases the guilt
pain and regret of perceived ‘mis-takes’.
this allows us to expand in the direction
that is in alignment with who we really are.
we have to test the waters to know what we DON’T want.
we must have better clarity about what we do want
in order for it show up in our lives.
just for today
if you find your thoughts drifting
to another time or place
when the version of you was making a choice
that your current version doesn’t agree with
1. take a breath.
2. know that you were doing the best that you could
AT THAT MOMENT.
3. you are wiser and stronger now. your perspective is expanded.
4. send love to that past version of you. send support.
then come back in to the now knowing that EVERY experience
has shaped you in to the amazing being that you are now.
have a beautiful day.
when the waves of memory pass thru
remember that you are an excellent surfer.
