I LOVE ALL THE THINGS
I LOVE ALL THE THINGS
Hafiz of Shiraz
I fall in love with every beautiful soul I meet, that’s what makes my world go round…
and it’s sooo GOOD!
I’m too old for drama, too old for insecurity, too old for pretending, too old to try to take care of you AND me, and way way waaaay too old for wasting my time, energy, emotion, or being on anything that doesn’t fill me to the depths of my wells.
I’m aging, gracefully, the way I always hoped I would.
Always learning, growing, and sometimes just staring in awe and wonder as the sweetness of life envelops my spirit. Or maybe it’s my spirit enveloping the sweetness.
Right now, I can breathe deep. I feel so full circle baby, just so full.

I secretly wish someone would sing this song to me and mean every word. Sometimes I’m such a shameless GIRL.
Forgiveness is letting go of what you had hoped the past could’ve been.
Forgiveness is letting go of what you had hoped people could’ve been.
Tonight I ran through the laundry list of my past and forgave every person that I could think of. Clearing out the clutter of all of the past injustices has made so much room for the beauty and love of life to come into my being.
I forgave every person I could think of: lovers, family members, friends, everyone who I felt had done me wrong. I forgave the world for things that have happened that crushed me, and most importantly, I forgave myself.
With every word of forgiveness uttered into space, my eyes opened a little wider. The world seemed brighter, and my heart lighter. I accepted that I cannnot change the things that have happened or the people in my life, and in that acceptance I feel that room has been created for better things to come.
I’ve been sleeping in grudges and living in black and white. I’m ready to live in color, free, wide open, happy.
It’s so odd that the only thing holding me back, the only thing keeping me down, has been my very own perspective. But again, I forgive myself for that.
I hope that if you’re reading this you try it. I sincerely hope that this helps someone else lighten their load the same way it has helped me.
