Organic Soul

I’m not sure if my fears faced me or if I faced my fears… In my youth I merrily skipped around, unaware of anything that wasn’t beautiful. I felt secure in my home with my parents, and I lived in this fairy tale world in my mind – life was good. As I became older fears were dispensed to me.  “Prepare for the future.” “Beware” of so many things.  I became cautious, defensive; looking for the negative, so I could protect myself.

In reality, I created all that I feared.  My reasoning mind had told me I was doing all the “right” things, and now I realize that what I had thought of as my delusional youthful spirt, was the way I should have been living.  With joy in my heart, the fearlessness to do anything; and that I was protected in a way, that what wasn’t best for me, wouldn’t work out.

I wish I would have woke up to these facts so much sooner. My life would have flowed so much easier. I wouldn’t reason why this or that didn’t happen, or why this person or that person didn’t love me.  I wouldn’t of taken it personally. I would have faith that something better was in store for me. I guess I shouldn’t use the word “better”, because the people and opportunities that passed- were good, but they were not what was “just right” for me.

My organic soul is now living more simply, healthily, and close to natures flow.  Meaning that I still have goals, and wants, and desires…, and I’m taking steps and making effort to get to where I want, but if the door doesn’t open when I knock, I have faith that if I keep on knocking that the door that does open, will be what’s “just right” for me, or at least, lead me in the direction of where I need to go.

Remember to listen to your gut, follow your intuition, and stay organic and true to you!

PS… I know I’ve been away for a while, but I went through all my belongings, I’ve downsized, and moved.  It feels great – lighter, freeing!  Thanks for keeping with me!  With Love and Gratitude! Goldi

True Beauty

Yesterday I couldn’t wait to slice up some of the most perfect and beautiful strawberries that I’d have ever seen.  Every strawberry in the carton was perfect; large, red, and perfectly shaped with the greenest and healthiest caps, stems, and leaves attached.  And, as I sliced each strawberry into half, displaying its internal structure, one after another my disappointment grew.  The strawberries were mostly white; I bravely took a bite. Yes, I had definitely been duped by its packaging.

I’ve also fallen victim to people with pretty packaging, and have noticed that a lot of people have done all of the work on the outside of themselves, can be pretty blank on the inside; and also like strawberries, people who have totally let them selves go on the outside, are also usually decaying on the inside as well.  Then there is the ever perfect organic strawberry, with a little more time and effort may or may not be the largest or the most perfectly shaped, but in it’s own authentic way, is both beautiful on the inside and out.

Must remember to stay organic! Just a thought…
