Are you waiting to give yourself permission to laugh again, to even smile again? For some reason when we have been through the worst life has to offer we continue punishing ourselves long after what happened is long over.
No matter what you’ve done or not done, lost or even driven away from your life you are worthy and you deserve to be happy.
We all have things in our life we wish we would have done differently. I could write a book about mine (oh wait… I have) 🙂 We forget as we berate and beat ourselves up that we learned so much from those experiences.
This life didn’t come with a road map or instructions. It’s up to us to figure it out as we go. We figure out what’s important and what isn’t. We learn who matters and who doesn’t need to. Discovering ourselves is a discovery of what it means to be alive.
Some of you who are reading this have made it back to happiness. Please share what helped you the most so that others who haven’t can be inspired and reassured that it’s OK. And if you haven’t released the burden you’re carrying on your shoulders consider this… the pain you are holding on to right now is solely your creation. (Yes there may be others who aren’t making your life easier…) However in every single situation you have the opportunity to forgive, learn, let go. And the time to do it is right now.
Nothing, no one and no situation can hold you back except you. It’s all a choice and it’s yours.
Do this for you… Please.
With love, Cheryl
