A birds’ choir
Today, the singing of the birds is so much deeper and felt carried from so much further away, it was beautiful. Would that be because they are welcoming a beautiful day today? The weather is supposed to be fantastic, so maybe they know! And isn’t it so, that we as well sing louder when we wake up on a day that is to be celebrated? Now we can’t be having a feast everyday, as we have to do our job, the regular daily things. But that doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate it? Today is what we have. If you’re one of the many persons who are working from holiday to holiday, stop that now. Nobody else but you is on the steering wheel of your life. In an earlier blog I wrote about asking your life what it needs from you today. And someone came over and asked me, whether I meant by that we didn’t get to choose our own way of living. I had to smile as I had long discussions about exactly that with a good friend of mine. He was convinced you always get to choose. I wasn’t that sure, as I believe we choose our blueprint of life before we get born. By now I still believe in this blueprint, but the way we look at it defines how we proceed in life. Now I know life has a lot to offer. And you get to choose what to do with it. It is definitely you at the wheel.
So of course I feel miserable as well once in a while, although I know there’s no reason for it. And even if there is, it is nothing compared to stories of others. So I put on a smile. And it’s not always easy, but it helps. I have to remind myself to practice what I preach as well regularly. If you have to make a big decision, feel which one is right for you. Don’t ask your ego, ask you inner self. And if you go through a difficult time in your life, really go through it. Don’t put the feelings away, but feel the grief, the sadness, the loneliness. It’s the only way for you to make it go away.
My red threat in life was the fear of rejection. I’ve been living my whole life, wanting to be everybody’s best friend. And because I believe there is something good in every person, the energy I had got drained, as I gave it all away as soon as I could. In a desperate attempt to get approved. Approved for what? By whom? For being part of the group, to fit in? Of course something so deep doesn’t just go away by saying it has to. But at some point I had to face it. It took me years working with it, to understand, fully understand and truly feel, that I don’t need to get approval from anyone. That being me, is enough and exactly what is needed. So yes. You choose. You choose what’s best for you. Just make sure you choose with your heart, because than you will truly start singing. And if we all do that, and be able to see something, it doesn’t matter how small, worth celebrating each day, we can tell this choir of birds I heard this morning to EAT THIS!
