I feel a shift occurring within me. Not a symbolic shift, but an actual shift. My joints feel different, my hands look different, my spirit feels different, my heart is different, my soul is different. Yet I am NOT different. I am shifting. I am evolving. I am stepping into the person I have always known myself to be.
This shift did not just happen over night. It has been a process. An exciting process, but a process none the less. Some things have turned out lovely, some things have been surprising and not what I expected. Yet within it, I understand. I understand the why. I understand that sometimes it just is what it is. There is no need to try and figure things out all the time. What should be considered, is how I respond to certain things and why I respond that way. Growth has nothing to do with what others are doing or saying, and everything to do with me. I am responsible for my growth, for my shift. I have to take responsibility for what is going on around me and for how people are or are not responding to me.
Its time to WAKE UP people! Stop blaming others for your discomfort, your unhappiness, your miserableness, your discontent, your feelings of pain. It is YOUR stuff! "Your" is the operative word! So why are you waiting for someone else to apologize, or to make you feel better? Create your own happiness and stop waiting on others. Take responsibility. Stop complaining and start your shifting process.
