TODAY I LEARNED: Nero, the Roman Emperor, married a man, one of his freedmen, taking the role of the bride.
I’m sitting here, having a Dr. Pepper for breakfast. The light from the living room window shines in, its intensity filtered by the dark clouds.
It creates a gray yet beautiful glow that’s easy on the morning eyes, reminding me that sunny days aren’t the only ones with happiness. I find cloudy days to be the best. Bright Summer mornings are a delight, but a potentially rainy morn, in my opinion, can’t be beat.
The brown of the window seal is painted with this genuine glow as well, providing me with a peaceful wake up.
I’m not usually in the mood to write when I first get up, but something pulled me to it. An inner calling, and the need to stay home, have brought me gracefully to self-reflection. Times like these, when we need to stay away from each other, are damn hard.
Something stirs inside our souls. In a world where self reflection is barely acknowledged, the necessity of staying inside is hard for a lot of people. When your soul calls you to look within and make needed change, something has to give. You will recognize the need to change and initiate that new energy, or go on living in the old ways you’ve incorporated.
Trust me when I say living with the old energy isn’t ideal.
I get it. I really do. Change is hard. It’s unbelievably relentless. But it’s all happening for the better. The universe is offering fresh energy, allowing us to move on. Like I always say, moving forward is the secret to living.
Now is a better time than any to commit to your inner creative spirit. Obviously, this won’t be on everyone’s path right now, but for those of you feeling the need to open up and get creative, go for it! Drawing, writing, dancing, music, or any other creative hobby. Whatever brings a little more joy to your soul, just do that. This is always different for everyone.
I had a pretty mind opening dream last night and it brought a new realization into fruition. There’s a lot that I’m worried about that I just need to let go of. I can do that by easing up on myself…something I try to practice daily. And through letting that go, something sparks and the need to delve further into creative endeavors calls to me. I don’t know where this new path will take me…but I do have some goals in mind. I plan to meet them this year, despite 2020 starting off with a lot of bumps in the road…bumps being an understatement.
The future is a scary thing, but if we trust ourselves and trust in the universe, we will overcome our obstacles and find a way to fulfill our dreams. I haven’t been holding true to a lot of self-help solutions, but I plan to change that in a very big way. Times are dire…but we can use it to focus on improving ourselves, all while being safe and practicing distancing.
