fear to free

I’ve had the Bittersweet Symphony song in my head for a few days now. Why? Not sure. It’s not a song I typically listen to, although, I haven’t really indulged in music in general lately anyway. Perhaps it’s my mind wanting the vibe it gives because it certainly does give one, doesn’t it?

A close friend from college told me his favorite movie was Cruel Intentions. And for those who aren’t familiar, this song was featured in this movie. It isn’t my favorite, but it made me wonder a lot of things about life. Why some people value certain things while others do not. There’s a whole lot of things in this landscape of life that makes absolute no sense to me.

The moment you realize you do not need is the moment you realize you are free. There are pieces in life that keep us attached because of what we fear or what we can’t let go. And then there are times when we are forced to face our fears and let go of things we never intended to in the first place. Talk about cruel intentions.

But maybe it forces us to see ourselves and this world the way we should. To give us that power to make changes we know we ultimate want to progress or to feel comfortable with the beings we were born to be.

Wherever you are in your journey today, I want to let you know that you aren’t alone. I find myself always changing and progressing; no matter how slow or fast or unpredictable or impractical this path makes it.

  1. Change is inherent in life. I love how you address attachment and letting go of our own attachments sometimes we don’t even realize are working in our lives. Knowing that we are changing as the universe changes is a real revelation. Even the things we concieve, are really just particles our brain can’t process, always moving though from our viewpoint they stand still.
    Thank you for sharing! C

    • Thanks for sharing your thoughts! I think it’s human nature to progress and sometimes we just need to be aware of where that focus goes. It’s important when there is intention in our actions as opposed to doing what everyone’s expectations of us are or what is considered a traditional path. Many happy successful people broke through the path that seemed most obvious to everyone and created their own.
