I am drawing a line in the sand I said….
Have been saying that a bit lately. I was drawing it somewhere between commitment to my projects and exhaustion!! In my head it was just before the point where the energy stops.
But it just kept moving…
What I didn’t realise was that the sand vampire was silently draining the sand from beneath my feet so the line kept moving.
It wasn’t till I was standing on the beach this morning at sunrise that I realised that this imaginary line served no real purpose and I was left floundering, wondering about everything including my worth.
As I stood there above the tide line in the dry sand the slightest movement of my body made the sand beneath my feet move. Just the sheer act of standing still and breathing still caused the tiny grains to shift beneath my feet. As I moved into the reach of the waves the sand was drawn away quickly each time a wave slipped back into the sea. Interesting.
Sometimes it is in those quiet moments that you get it and I got it this morning.
I had been questioning, challenging and excusing myself and everyone else struggling to understand how I found myself in this place, a place where I seemed to have forgotten that I am myself valuable.
So I moved on toward the rock ledge and at the same time dug deep inside myself to find my inner rock, the stone the edge on which to curl my toes and stand fast. It was in that moment that my clarity of mind arrived allowing me to reassess the situation and stand firm knowing that the line in the sand had now given way to a solid rock of decision.
Time to move forward focusing on the goals that my heart, mind and soul know have value.
So here I am reaching for the stars beyond the reach of the sand vampires. Feeling recharged and ready for the decisions that need to be made.
May you each find clarity in your heart, mind and soul.
Peace and light Ali xxx
