When I stopped — I finally noticed all the Love that was already present in my Life. My kids, my grandkids, my friends, the rest of my family. I began to see the person they saw when they looked at me. I stopped trying to be The Person some new Human would find acceptable as a mate. I became Real. And with that realness — I Became.
Meditation, yoga, peace, calm, and joy came easier. Toxic behavior was easier to recognize although it still catches me off guard. Life is a process. A Journey.
Leaving this path and looking up at my surroundings — at all the blessings already inherent in my world was the first step to sanity. ❤
