This morning I was creating space on my cell by deleting videos. I came across one of me two years ago right before I met my partner. I was carrying about 50 lbs on me that wouldn’t budge. I was exercising & we all know I eat right. My body just wouldn’t let go of the unnecessary toxic weight that was suppressing who I had always been!
Full of energy!
I was hiding away from the world! I wasn’t allowing others to be around me. I carried so much shame in those fifty pounds.
One day a friend of mine convinced me to meet his friend. I said “no way”. I was intimidated! I took one look at how fit he was in his photos and said “that’s not me anymore”! He would never be attracted to me. We met and he was very attracted to me. As I was to him. Within six weeks the fifty pounds I had tried to get off of me for two years were all but a distant memory. I had my vibrancy back! Not because the weight was gone. Because my confidence was back and I was being SHOWERED with a constant rainbow of love!
When I look back now I realize that I hadn’t been truly loved and cared for in almost a decade. It was like a peeling of an onion! My true beauty was revealed with each kiss, softly spoken word or gentle touch.
Just as we blossom when we are being loved fully and completely, we too can quickly unravel as the gentleness of love leaves our garden. This is why it’s so very important to know exactly when to have a “necessary ending”. So beautiful beginnings can occur!
Water your grass! Water it until it’s as green as an emerald! Water it so much that the wild flowers grow along the sides of your home like a trellis! Water it so everyone who enters your garden leaves better for having entered!
