It’ll be two years on the 9th, Saturday, since I became a Motherless Daughter. It’s been an journey – good, bad, and ugly. It’s been eye opening, which is saying a lot coming from one who prides myself on “keeping it real”. I’ve gone inside myself and am now just starting to emerge into the next phase of life. I’ve left many people behind and closed them out. Now I finally feel ready to move forward and open myself to others again. There’s seems to be more room as the Spring has warmed the air and the sun is finally taking over. And I’ve learned yet another lesson from the Universe on empathy and kindness towards others. I’ve had much grace shown to me.
A dear friend posted this meme on my Facebook page the other day and it got me thinking…
Take a lesson from your dog, no matter what life brings you,
kick some grass over that shit and move on.
We all have to move on – through whatever it is we experience on our journey. I look at my four aging animals. One cat is 88 years old in people years and she sometimes pees on things. One of the dogs is 78 in people years and he is having some issues too. Sure I get annoyed. Then I clean it up, spray it, put the fan on to dry. I tell them both that it’s ok, hoping that when I’m that old and have “issues” I’ll be accepted too.
This must be the next phase of life. Accepting where you’re headed, accepting who you are and creating an place to be happy with those you choose to make the journey with.
