After dealing with an emotional weekend I walked outside to my car, opened the door then turned around, looked on the ground and smiled. It finally really hit me. You’re probably wondering why I smiled and what exactly hit me well it was simple... the leaves were showing me how beautiful it is to let the dead things go.
Lately, I shared how I wasn’t feeling like myself. Honestly I was dealing with emotions I put on hold because I wanted to be strong. Which actually hurt me more than just facing them head on. Week after week I invested time in keeping busy. You see I wasn’t dealing with how I felt I simply masked everything . Plus we all know it’s only a matter of time before we can’t hide from ourselves.
So this weekend I allowed myself to cry and I faced my emotions within head on. No more masking how I really felt. You see crying didn’t make me weak, it made me strong. Strong enough to face how I really felt. Strong enough to know and believe there is beauty in every season. With that smile I gained a piece of my faith back. Something I felt like I completely lost while masking how I truly felt. That small piece of faith helped re-fill my cup.
If you’re going through something I challenge you to face it as soon as it happens, don’t wait. Do the necessary to re-fill your cup. Inspire yourself daily and know that crying doesn’t make you weak it makes you strong. Like Lauren Hill said “Don’t be a hard rock when you really are a gem, babygirl.”
Love and light always,
