Are you full of it?

fairy-tale-81855_640
When I think of fullness, I think of food (naturally lol) and how sometimes I eat too much. Other times I think of being full as being bombarded with too much information, especially with the advancement of technology in our time, or the need to undertake many tasks and run lots of errands to get by in daily living. It’s always the things that need to be done to be part of this world. It made me wonder though, perhaps there is a different kind of fullness to consider; a fullness that is enriching and nourishing to our souls and reignites our spirit.

I have been feeling out of sorts this week and although I know it will pass (it always does), it makes me feel like someone else other than me. I made a choice today to show up as my perfectly imperfect self despite this because sometimes you have to. Otherwise what is the alternative? There is an ebb and flow in life and to understand this is always reassuring to me.

My decision to be here and write this post was sparked by an article I wrote last year about how I overcome my greatest challenges through my faith and daily spiritual practice. I knew that there was a chance that no-one would ever read it but to just write it and know that the Universe would hear my voice and the acknowledgment of my journey was enough for me. I heard back from the magazine recently and my experience has just been printed for the August edition which is exciting and I am absolutely thrilled. I had completely let it go and not thought about it for nearly a year so it has been an interesting turn of events. It’s definitely a lesson in letting go and how it is in this complete surrender that what you want will come back to you. Sometimes it does not come back to you in the way that you envisaged or even at all. If it doesn’t then it is making room for something even better to come along that our minds cannot even comprehend.

As I read the article I had long forgotten about, my heart was completely filled with gratitude for my life and the people in it. My worst circumstances, which made me feel like life was against me at the time, became the best thing that happened to me. The love, support and miracles that occurred were the best things of all because I was open to it and that is the fullness I am talking about. It is the best kind and always available to us no matter what.

So my question to you today is, are you full of it?

“And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.”
(Roald Dahl)

Love and light,
Lisa

    Congrats on your article and insights into letting go Lisa. I’m more full of busyness than faith lately. 🙂 And, I’m willing to let that go to make room for peace and flow. blessings, Brad
