Navigating My Murky Waters, Feeling Strangely Refreshed

What a surprisingly amazing day today has been.

I reclaimed my position as captain, and today was my first day back at the helm. And though I was navigating through dark, murky, unclear waters, I felt renewed…light…lifted…hopeful and refreshed!

I cannot allow the dreams, visions, aspirations and goals of others to steer my vessel any longer. As long as I permit the purpose of another to chart my course, I’ll always feel as though I am in unfamiliar territory. This realization alone has brought me so much joy.

I can taste the freedom that Clarity promises, and it makes me want it all the more. It makes me wonder why I ever gave it up.

As I coasted through this day, I realized that it’s not a matter of “IF” I will get back to the basics and claim Clarity, it’s “WHEN!”I drifted through the confusion and clutter and saw glimpses of beauty, freedom, peace, contentment…glimpses of me and reminders of my purpose.

Everything is lining up, and I know I’m moving towards the right decision…I know I have to throw any desires and dreams that are not mine overboard, or else risk sinking into the swampy, watery deep.

I’ll not drown in the labor-filled, uninspired tasks of others. I have far too much to give, far too much to do, far too much to create to do anything so foolish.

I haven’t even lightened my load, yet, and it already feels so good…

  1. The basics are a good thing. It’s sometimes hard to go back to them though and “easier to keep the clutter” which is part of why things remain so murky. One thing I’ve learned lately is that fear drives me to keep the clutter. So I ask you, “What are you afraid of?” Because releasing the clutter means letting go of that security blanket and facing your true goals. No, I’m not there, I need to eat, so my waters stay murky, but I’m realizing the more I let go of the clutter, the “cleaner” the water is…
    Good Luck ♥

  2. How apt! I was feeling a little bit emo since ytd, I am still feeling a little bit down but am glad that you have bounced back and doing great. Keep it up!
