Thinking this morning how shallow and superficial some aspects of this world can be, but in essence it is not the World, it is the acts, values and belief systems that are actually shallow and superficial, in my opinion.
It feels like we are measured in terms of our monetary success, the clothes we wear, the way we look, how much we achieve. With this mentality constantly being the driving force, it is no wonder there is a perception view and mindset that to view anyone who shares simplistic values and beliefs to be an odd ball.
My thinking is that it is actually the eccentrics, the odd balls, the geeks, the nerds, the different do actually achieve but perhaps in a more subtle quieter way than shouting to the rooftops look at me, look what I have achieved every step of the way.
When you finally get to a place where you can sit comfortably in your soul, sit comfortably with your quirks, with your failings, with your positives and with yourself simply as you are, I feel your soul has gotten to a place of acceptance!
It is when you get to a place of celebrating yourself, without the driving force and need of approval of others, is when you have found a quiet place of yes I have arrived. I feel that, the beauty about the souls journey, and each will arrive at their own destination, in their own time, in their own unique way, is when you get there, you get there, it does not matter how long it takes, but that you get there.
So today I stand in celebration of being in a place of celebration of being my own SHERO and honouring all what has been achieved in my own quiet way and in my own unique way. I hope that you see that all what you too have achieved, even in the smallest of baby steps without the extra added aspects of viewing from a perspective of money, materialism, ego or having the need to be perfect. You simply are a success in your own right, the baby steps accumulate to the greater whole.
Celebrate you as you are, I do and my soul feels a place of inner peace at just that.
In love & light Susan xxx
