This one is an interesting one. Allow me to start off by emphasizing that I do not have any religious inclination, but I respect people that do. Also, it is a pet peeve of mine when people say they are “spiritual” because 99% of the time they are not, but they want to seem interesting. Good luck being spiritual, and I hope you know you need to (at least try) be in touch with yourself in order to start that path.
Anywho…(defined by UrbanDictionary as “An extremely annoying misuse of the word ‘anyhow’. Generally used by people who think they’re being clever. Anywho, how was your day?”- Which makes it ironic, because I just touched on the subject of pretentiousness and this word seemed oddly appropriate to use. Hm… was that a pretentious statement? Eh.) this quote- as I was saying… is powerful.
Whatever God you believe in, whatever light or whatever energy.. we are bound to reach out to when we are at a point that we simply do not know what to do. It happens. We are human. I was raised Catholic, and at times of desperation, I used to see myself praying “Our Father” and I am not even religious. It is as if it were wired within me to reach out to something intangible, bigger than myself, to help me grasp some sort of understanding when the options life presents me seem so… blurry.
Now, when moments like these happen, I pause. I pause my thoughts and everything that I am doing and I focus hard to be with Laura. To be with myself. To feel my heart, my mind, my soul. And I become self-aware. And this is how I am open to the Universe and I let it guide me. I ask it, I implore it, to please show me any type of sign. And holy crap, I have been feeling like a dart board with all of the darts it has been throwing me, almost screaming at me to wake the ffff up.
What is the point of being blessed enough to receive these signs if we are going to ignore them? What. is. the. point. It may seem hard, but a decision has to be made… and who better to trust than your own instinct, your own Universe?
Years ago I tattooed the word “trust” under my breast, on my right rib. I am not one to get tattoos for the hell of it- if something touches me enough that I apply to my daily life, I want it to mark me.
So why the word “trust”? Well- you must trust that whatever path you take is the one you were supposed to take. Always. Even if it took you to feel pain, even if you feel you took a few steps back. Every step you take, you were supposed to take. Trust, that if you are in tune with your heart, that if you are in tune with your soul, any decision you make that makes your heart feel lighter will be the right one. And if you are at a point of ultimate confusion, do only things that give you peace, be perceptive to signs, and follow them.
