In today’s #throwback Thursday video (click the word “video” to see it), I talk about my relative passing away. I didn’t attend the funeral because I just don’t do well with them. To me funerals are oftentimes painful. But I realized during this time that at funerals we leave that person there along with our emotions and feelings for them. Yes, we will have the memories that they left us with but we will never physically see them again.
I decided that day that I too will have a “funeral” daily. A funeral for my past hurts and pains. A funeral for my negative thoughts. A funeral for the “old” me. A funeral for the stress I carried. A funeral for the relationships that didn’t work out. A funeral for yesterday’s “fights”. A funeral for doubt and unbelief. A funeral for anything that is holding me back. I no longer want to carry them. I want to leave them behind and never go back to them.
What are you doing to release yourself from those things that are holding you back from being the best version of you? You must get “light”, unpack those things weighing you down and have a funeral. Then celebrate new life! Every morning you are given a new day to make a different choice about your life! No matter what others may think you are loved and you are amazing! You are worth the work it takes to be free!
I hope this motivation and inspiration is something for your situation to free and relax your mind as if you are on a vacation!
