Growing my soul, as Fearsome grows, I am learning that in order to move on that I must bless what I am leaving behind in order to make peace. To truly move on I must bring myself to a place of peace. A place that truly wishes the best for the person or situation that is now a part of my past and not a part of my present. I must forgive. To truly forgive and find peace, I must give my blessing, understanding and hope for that person, place, thing or situation.
I can start by appreciating what was. Looking to see what I enjoyed, what enriched my experience and what I can learn. Through appreciation I find gratitude. When I find what I am grateful for, I can give my blessing and well wishes. In giving my blessing I can be a peace and move on into the present, not holding onto something that has served me well in its time. Life is in constant motion and cycles. Cycles are meant to keep moving on, not meant to be stagnant and stuck.
While driving the rental car in Ft. Lauderdale I heard a tune from my past. I heard it at least 3 times on the classic station that the car radio was tuned. The song is one of my favorite from one of my favorite all time albums, Breakfast in America by Supertramp. I hadn’t heard it in a long time. At first listen the song is obviously about a one night stand. If really contemplated it isn’t. The message could be applied to most any experience that has served it’s useful purpose.
Yes… somehow my mind can take a shallow message and twist it into a meaningful one.
