Love Letter for a Monday – Losing bits of ourselves


.
I came across this feather this morning, maybe from a magpie? It reminded me of the ‘bits’ of ourselves that we lose over time. Our hair, our loved ones, our flat tummies, our friends, our teeth, ourselves….we grow new versions of ourselves, sometimes better and sometimes this is forced upon us through circumstances out of our control and sometimes in our control.
.
We have choices, we have dreams, aspirations. This is super tough sometimes as we push forward to the things, ideas, futures that we wish to hold and live in. Sometimes we push so hard that it becomes a block, a brick wall. Sometimes we need to step back, re access and if it is the right time we can go around or over the brick wall. I wonder if it’s all we hoped for?
.
I know we lose part of ourselves to learn more about ourselves but it’s hard sometimes to sit with this. Most of us don’t feel comfortable with the uncomfortable and rightly so. I really don’t like to sit with the place where i feel i have lost my way, my self but i do know from experience that when we do emerge it’s a place that is just like the butterfly emerging from the cocoon. It’s a place of true self with a little less baggage! .

Hoping your day is one that you are proud of my loves, one that you find a bit of the new and a bit of your old self. The one self that you are proud of and you claim to be the best version of you to date! Xxxxx
