Live Freely, in Balance and Harmony


💖 BALANCE 💖

We spend our lives in the pursuit of perfection, the perfect time, the perfect love, the perfect job, the perfect friendship, the perfect life... And on that endless mission, we forget the beautiful life that we were gifted.

Frustration takes over, stress invades our daily thoughts, we feel anxious, we can't breath, we overthink and we self indulge in toxic habits.

We always want what we can't have because we forget that what we know have, was what we were pursuing our whole lives.

And we keep pushing and pushing ourselves believing that we have to be better, that we have to have better things and we bring ourselves to that stressing point that when things don't go our way, we feel like failures and that our lives are meaningless and hopeless.

But what...if for a split second we just stop and BREATH!

Take in everything that surround us...Everything that is just in front of us, staring at us, wanting some attention, affection, a hug or a simple smile.

What if for one split second, we stopped and look at ourselves... Deep inside our souls, and realize that we are everything we ever wanted to be, that finally we have reached the top, the perfect BALANCE!

I used to think that moment was impossible to achieve, I thought it was something that only special people only felt; that I had to be some sort of Buddha, yogi, or special angel to feel that perfect BALANCE in my life.

.

But then I thought, all these amazing people must have been as simple as I was at some point in their lives; there must have been something bigger than them that trigged them into finding that BALANCE, to be able to live freely and in harmony.

And in that a-ha moment, everything made sense...The moment I let everything go; the fear of failure; the uncertainty if I ever was going to reach state of peace; the doubts if I was good enough to deserve a life full of joy and happiness; I let go of trying to find perfection and I allow myself BE.

.

.

.

And then it happened... I re-discover my inner and outer beauty; I learned to let things go and understand that the Universe loves us and wants us to succeed at our own time and pace, when we are finally ready to receive and give; I learned that my life was what I always wanted it to be and that it was time to enjoy it and live each and every moment because that's what I had been gifted and I promised myself I will never take for granted this awesome gift.

.

.

.

I finally learned that I AM MORE THAN ENOUGH, and I deserve everything that I dream of and work hard for, I deserve to be respected and I deserve to be loved, I deserve to be who I am...No shame, no restrictions, no censorship... I deserve to forgive myself and move on and be simply and only ME, in all my grace, in all my splendor.

💖 BALANCE 💖

All the beauty, all the small things, the moments, the feelings, THE INNER PEACE.
