I gaze upon this expansive landscape, taking in every inch of this golden horizon. I feel the glowing sand beneath my feet, the warm sun kissing my skin, the salty taste of the air. The wind gently lifts me and I am flying free.
These things and more bring a sense of freedom to me. To really feel free though, no matter what is going on, no matter where I am, I find the key is right there within myself. It’s in the unconditional acceptance of self. My daily morning mantra is “I love and accept myself just as I am.” It reminds me each day that I am already enough, and there is no need to control the flow of life. I trust in life. In love. In myself. And I feel free.
As I peel back every layer, examine every unquestioned thought, I discover a peaceful path of love and acceptance. I find the truth, the untruths, simply what is. I surrender to this seemingly vulnerable state where freedom, peace, love and connection exist and it brings me great joy in this amazing life we are blessed with.
May you find the peace within and allow yourself the time and space to simply be.
