Her heart surrounded
By a sea of other peoples’
Dreams and destinations,
Anchoring only for the dreams
Calling from within

I recently let some things go that I was excited about but I came to realize they were only serving me in a limited way.
On the surface, they were good things. But once I made the decision to let them go, I felt so much lighter.
And also a bit panicky.
These things have been serving as anchors for me. Things that keep me feeling safe and tethered but not fully living up to my desire to float and “follow my weird”.
In my morning journaling, I was reminded that I’ve tried this way for a long time.
Over and over again, I’ve committed to relying on my internal guidance and then succumbed to the panic and reached for an external anchor instead.
It’s a lifelong process, I suppose, with each day an opportunity to reconnect and recommit.
And so today, I float.
What are you reconnecting and recommitting to today?
