A question presented itself today about energies- that we attract what we are. I used to think that was true and almost at one point I thought it was nothing but the truth. Later on I realized sometimes as humans we can bring out the toxic side we worked so hard to heal- allowing the inhibitions we hid underneath our changes roam wild.
It’s also true that some people find an exact replica of what they are and it works for them. Some people believe opposites attract and in the same sense some people believe they cannot be with someone they don’t have anything in common with. It all comes down to each person with their own preference of what kind of person they’re willing to be with their entire life with or however long they decide. There are so many options because of technology and it makes it that much harder to find that great relationship that withstands it all. In reality, the opportunities and options are endless.
I find myself finding people attracted to similar qualities of themselves to some extent. It’s like there are times you notice certain relationships and you can see why they work so well with each other. I have also found certain people who can’t stand to be with someone like themselves and balance out someone who is nothing like them. Sometimes I wonder what the best recipe is for a relationship, wondering if mine contains the ingredients necessary for long term success, finding that it becomes work to make things continue to work.
I don’t always mean relationships as romantic relationships but relationships that you consider friendships even. There was a point in time that I was naive about that, completely. I find myself to this day still learning. Even though today, I ran into a situation in which I realigned with energy I enjoyed around me before that had awakened passions I didn’t know I had and it had finally reappeared back in my life.
Sometimes it’s ironic how life works. Certain people come into your life to teach you something- anything. Sometimes it’s pain, love, friendship, forgiveness.. etc. but every one teaches you something, something different than the first experience you had with them if they are the same person in a different phase of life. I’ve learned to accept and appreciate that some people come back because they’re meant to be there and if they aren’t, somehow they will disappear back into whatever path that takes them to another direction.
The thing about life is that not always will you be in their path and not always will they be in yours and life is about accepting that. You cannot force, beg, ask, or request that someone does something that is not in alignment with how they feel. Everyone has their own purpose for being here and it won’t be the same as yours. Everyone’s beliefs and experiences won’t be the same as yours and that is why this world is so beautiful and amazing. There is so much to learn from everyone, big or small. It can be as small as learning about the new cafe down your street to as big as the blueprint for a future plan.
It was as if the Universe knew this year, I was asking for a change in me, to wake up and grow into the beautiful life that I have, realizing that I was half asleep for a few months, dreaming. I find myself now, grateful and happy. I was able to mend things that were broken inside of me. I asked myself important questions about how I feel and why I feel them and taking action to fix those things to make the vibe around me much more intentional and less impulsive.
I am ready to continue to learn. Being almost 29 – feeling different than the girl I was 10 years ago with the same passions as the girl I used to be, continuing to grow and build into the things I used to love that I still love. I find it to be the most exhilarating experience.
Life is not to be taken for granted. We only have this one life, this one breath, and this one day to make decisions that will set the tone for the rest of our lives. Most importantly, forgiveness of the self is what will make the experience that much better. Forgive yourself every time and you will find that life isn’t so hard to deal with and that hope will always take you higher into clarity and love within yourself. Never expect anyone to be able to forgive or love you the way you will love you and never let anyones rejection, hurt, or trauma of themselves alter the way you feel and love yourself. Just know you’re worth the breath you’re breathing and take advantage of it everyday.
Above all, I love you and hope you enjoyed today’s message.
