"Every now and then the girl felt as if
she was trying to find a balance between two worlds
and she wasn't quite sure where she fitted in."
Balance, it seems to me that if we spend our lives looking for it, it will surely elude us.
If we aim to create it...there in lies the opportunities to choose, and choice is empowering.
We live in a world full of people, stuff, responsibilities and life events that are constantly calling too us and through us... shaping, distracting, amusing, derailing, and captivating us.
Creating us as we move through life.
So much outside of us is vying for our attention, sometimes its's hard to hear the whisper of the voice within when we are drowning in the noise outside. Be still, be very still and listen, clarity will come. What will you do with it when it arrives?
Fitting in, seems to me there is a big wide world full of agendas that serve others.
Lets look to own selves and ask who am I ? Where does everything else end and I begin? what serves me? and when I share it with the world, does it help the world become a better, brighter, kinder, safer, more loving and peaceful place. I hope so...
We are always going to face circumstances that may leave us feeling as though we are not a part of, amongst peers, friends & sometimes even in our own family.
It is part of our journey to discover, uncover, create and surrender to who we are.
Lets honour that and teach our children to do the same.
In the wise words of Dr Seuss
"why fit in when you were born to stand out"
