I lost myself. I’m not sure how, when or why, I just know I did. I took an unfamiliar path toward something new and exciting, but I forgot to take myself along with me. Looking back, I wish I had because then I know things would have turned out differently. Now, I am left feeling sad and less than happy which is rare for me. However, this too shall pass.
We all get lost from time to time, forgetting ourselves in the midst of new adventures, life changes, or even the ups and downs of everyday living. It doesn’t matter so much that we get lost, what matters is that we find our way back to our Inner Life ~ the greater and more powerful part of who we truly are. To the part of us that knows nothing but peace, abundance, tranquility, unconditional love and true happiness. The part of us that knows All Is Well exactly as it is and always will be.
As thrilling as life’s new experiences can be, I believe it is important not to forget ourselves in all the excitement. I believe it is important to remain grounded within our Inner Life absorbing all that the present moment has to offer. Let’s not cloud the beauty of our experiences with past pains, regrets or issues, and let’s not cloud it with worries of what the future may or may not hold.
Too often we get caught up in the moment and before you know it, time has passed, you are living through your outer life, and you are nowhere to be found. This in itself can cause quite the emotional roller coaster regardless of what the experience is. However, it is okay. Where we are and what we are doing is always okay even if it is not taking us to where we really want to be. With each new experience is born a new dream or desire ~ for better or for worse, take the time to get back to you ~ to your Inner Life. I lost myself and it hurts, but I will cherish the memories of the moments within my heart for an eternity.
“If true and lasting happiness is what you seek, seek first from within. Live, breathe and be your Inner Life. Quiet your mind, focus solely on the present moment, and allow the power of your Inner Life guide you to where you want to be.” – Cindy Ortiz
