Trees – Weekly Quote

Since today is the last day of summer, I found a quote that was perfect for the night before Autumn equinox.

In case you can’t read it, it says, “Be like a tree, let the dead leaves drop.” -Rumi

I love this quote because it’s a reminder that you can be strong enough to let things go, whether it be a toxic friend, family member, psychical items, digital items, etc. Learn to be free. And I like this quote because it reminds me of Autumn, it’s my favourite season.

Start Again

Feel free to start again. Feel free to let go. It is okay to let the broken foundation finally collapse in order for you to build again. You have to let go of the broken pieces in order to grow and start something new.

Letting go of the broken pieces and looking back at everything that once was before it shattered may be difficult but you are a strong person. Everything that has happened to you has for a reason. You may not be able to see it now but you will – give it time.

Rebuilding your future is the best thing you can do for yourself. Let go of everything that weighs you down.

Today, I will let go of the broken pieces of my life and welcome the new with arms open wide.

Letting Go

As another year’s end is upon us we then realize that a few changes needs to made in our lives. Sometimes that may result in us to feel trapped in a relationship. The ones that already reached the end but we are in denial about it because we think it’s best to postpone the official end that way we don’t have to grieve over the lost of a relationship.

We need to trust our journey and believe that whatever may happen to us it is for the best. It will help us grow. We should let go of all of the relationships that are no longer working for us. We must recognize our strength to end a relationship. We need to know that we are loved and that we will find people who will fall in love with our quirks and admire our flaws.

Today I will allow myself to grieve and I will accept that the path that I am on is planned for me.

Clear Thinking

Today I read my daily reading about clear thinking and it reminded of me to release unwanted thoughts and thoughts that aren’t solely on the present. I release thoughts from my past and the future. Mind you it is okay to think about these but all of your thoughts can’t live there. You should focus on the present. Bring your mind back to the present.

You shouldn’t let your past or future blur your thinking of the present.

Today I will release my thoughts of the past and future and embrace in the now.

Keep Living

“So darling, for now don’t be so hard on yourself. Know that you can laugh even in the midst of your miseries and you can cry heaps in the centre of your joys. You don’t need logical reasons to feel human so let your heart burst as and how it wants. Dance when you hear a good song playing from a car driving past and drink lots of water. It’s like giving our bodies a taste of home. Say I love you more than you think it in your mind and kiss, hug, hold hands, touch this experience of life in every way you can. Life can be difficult. Slowing down to see the small things again and doing something you love can help loads and sing as much as you can and listen to music. Let music surround you each day and remind you of life’s beauty. You’re doing so well. You really are. And even when you feel scared, do that thing anyway. We might always have fear, but we won’t always have these moments. Life is precious. Keep living.”

-S.C. Lourie

Today, I will live my life even if I have fear on my mind. I will keep on going to achieve all that I want to be.

Cleaning

I spent the majority of my day cleaning. I’ve been trying to prepare myself for 2016. To me January the 1st isn’t just another day, it’s the start of a new beginning.

In order to prepare for if you need to declutter and organize the house. If you have dead plants you must get rid of them and replace them with live plants.

I believe that having less is more. You begin to appreciate everything. The less you have the more meaning it will have to you.

I have been preparing a list of things I want to accomplish beforehand.

Today, I will prepare a list of what I want to do before the new year blossoms.

Letting Go

Last week I was sick so I forgot that I didn’t post anything for Buddy Wakefield Wednesday. I apologize for not remembering so here are two posts to make up for it.

“This is an apology letter to the both of us for how long it took me to let things go.”

I love this quote! It describes a time of my sadness. There were many times where I struggled to let go of a dying friendship and to accept that things were never able to go back to the way they were. It took me a long time to accept this fact but after accepting that truth, it is okay that my friendship ended. It was a difficult to accept and move on. But after many months I was able to move on with my head held high. A lot of things went wrong and I am sorry that things ended for the way they did.

There are times where I think of you and wonder if you are okay. But I am okay that we are no longer friends anymore. It taught me a lot of things that I needed to learn like acceptance of others and that you can’t mold someone into someone that they are not.

It was for the best. I realized that friendship happened for a reason and I am forever grateful for that friendship. If it wasn’t for that friendship I wouldn’t have met my boyfriend and I adore him to pieces. ❤
