“When someone is denying what they are, then that’s when things start to spiral down.“ -WILL.I.AM
Denying the true self? Denying hopes, wants, desires? Denying what is plain to see in action and participation? It matters not WHAT or HOW the denial is happening, it matters that it is. Humans are the only creatures in nature that are capable of this, other than those creatures and beings manipulated to do human desire and trade. Being something other than what something it is requires a lot of energy, and it takes energy to swim upstream, against the current or tread rather than in flow or floating. It is the state of the world that encourages humans to be do and act contrary to nature, most times anyway, however it still has its price no matter how you got there. It is through releasing control, and expressing genuinely and authentically, that learning how to move within the flow, within the current, and nature of being that empowerment can occur. The storm generates just as much energy as it can take away, it just depends which side of it something stands.
On this day, I will honestly evaluate whether I am denying myself in any way; looking for clues within my day to day life that can shed light for me. I will take the time to contemplate what a PERFECT day would look like for me from start to finish and write it down! 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼
