The blog entitled “Today I lived and you did too” resounded in my soul. My spirit rose up and stood taller and stronger in grace. I felt inspired. I felt the sisterhood of women encircling my space and supporting me. The sense of every woman in my ancestry lending their strength and character to my “self” was strong. I looked at the legacy I am leaving behind of my children and their children and the good they do – I felt beautiful. I felt strong and full of worth. Grace and strength were vibrating in my body.
Then my head and my saboteur started to work overtime . . . “Those are just words. What do they really mean? I need to fix the rest of my life if I cannot say this every day? I am a failure because I didn’t do the laundry last night. I didn’t even clean my house or do anything that I should have. I am so lazy.”
Oh that dark spirit of negativity! How dare you spoil the beauty of the moment? How dare you even show up? Isn’t this the truth of the writing I just read? I will not give in to the dark moment and negative thoughts. I am beauty! I am grace! My spirit is full of joy and love for all.
BACK OFF SABOTEUR! GO INTO YOUR BLACK HOLE AND DO NOT COME TO ME AGAIN. I CHOOSE LOVE!
