Dear Searching Self

Dear Searching Self, What are we searching for? Sometimes I know exactly what it is. At other times it feels much more like a detour. Really it goes in cycles.  At times we have searched for road maps, or for the bypass out of hard times. For some magic answers. At other times we see these uncomfortable moments as opportunities. 

Searching self you are a collector of understanding (you are books filled with underlines and annotations. Journals with notes and musings). You are intimate conversations with family and friends. I love the nerd you are.

Searching Self I love that you are a seeker of expansion and I love your open mind. You draw connections and see that it all boils down to THE SAME THINGS. It just resonates differently each time the words are rephrased.

You are a soul searcher seeking infinite possibilities + miracles. Trying to remember why we are here. You are a magic seeker + life long learner. You seek time for yourself and space to be creative. You are wanderlust. You love adventure and seek new destinations to explore + experience. You search for the keys to intuitive living.

Searching self at your best our experiences bring us WONDER. At other times you frustrate me and I wish your urges were not so strong... i wish you didn't think so much. Remember all that joy Contented Self promised? Remember to be easy on ourself in this search... we must believe we are NOT LOST.

You search for FLOW, yet this ever elusive BALANCE can feel like hard work! Especially when you create these ideals of mothering, partnership, and purpose. Let's find pleasure in the discovery rather than comparing our journey to that of others. Beware of over analysis + perfection + arming yourself with information. Remember life is not uniform for everyone... we are on our own unique journey.You're searching for that FULL life, but remember it can not be found, instead it has to be LIVED.

Remember to embrace the which you have already found + rediscovered. Honour that. Honour those moments of happiness and wellbeing shared with family. Honour your growth. There is more to come!
