Living life out loud means being mindful of the ebb and flow of emotions that we all experience as we travel our own unique paths. It means listening to what our hearts are trying to tell us. It means paying attention to the things that trigger sharp emotions for this is something important our inner self is trying to teach us. Living life out loud means speaking our own truth as it relates to our story and our lens that we look at the world through. It means being authentic, claiming our joys and our sorrows. It means being real!
I am continuously amazed at how the mere act of writing about my sorrows releases the strange hold these deep emotions can try to have over me. When I write and share of the waves of sadness, grief, anger, etc. that can wash over me I feel my deepest self say “Yes, thank you for listening. Thank you for acknowledging the darker side and not simply hiding it away. Thank you for speaking it out loud.” When I do this I find myself much more able to ride the waves rather than drown under them. Speaking all of my story out loud allows me to move through life in all of its’ glory – dark and light, sadness and happiness, grief and hope. And then, in the journey, I find the wonderful joy of light and love.
Thank you my Web of Love for holding space and loving me through the entire journey. Know that I stand ready to do the same for all of you. Have a magical day!
