"DAMN THE DAMSEL"


Like a patched quilt thrown over my head, life events blinded me for too long. Tired of that old metaphorical quilt, I threw it off and noticed the patterns on the quilt of my life had an interesting story to tell.

Who are we? Are we our patchy history or do we have the ability to create a new tapestry of gold?

For a long time I felt lost, I felt unloved, unwanted and unworthy.  I was sad, bitter, defensive and angry. More than anything, I was emotionally terrified. Being trapped in a movie of the past playing out events and trying to make sense of everything was exhausting.

My patched life quilt grew, each new patchy square a painful time line in my life. The larger the quilt became, the more often I hid under it.  But its frayed edges scratched my heart and I grew weary of the burden.

I started looking in the mirror every day and verbally told myself how worthy I was of love.  Slowly, I started to notice the beauty of my own soul, the strength of my own character, the perfection of all my life experiences. I realized how absolutely stunning the present moment is and how long I had missed seeing it.

Soon, I lost interest in hiding behind the old quilt. I was no longer angry toward people who hurt me. I stopped hating them and started loving them for the spiritual gifts they bestowed. I saw the patches of my life quilt for what they were:  Yesterday.


My biggest break through? We are the creators of our own lives and the past is over.

 For years I was waiting for a miracle to happen via another human being when I’m the miracle of my own life. I was consumed trying to understand everything, but sometimes there are no answers. All we can do is trust, let go, surrender to the pain and embrace the beauty of growth.

In life we give our power away by waiting for a rescue.  No one is going to rescue us; we rescue ourselves.  I’d been waiting my whole life for that magic in another person to come along and make everything right in my world, when, all along, that magic was within me.

I finally gave up on the outside world and embraced my inner oracle, and that’s exactly what needed to happen. Boom, the seed within me bloomed, and the rose of my soul and its perfume now flow out around me and towards the cosmos. I swear the light shines differently. I feel like a new person.

Damn the damsel. We’re way more powerful than to wait around for a rescue taxi. Life has too much to offer and it’s all up for grabs.  There’s a lot of wind out there in the world that I want to feel in my hair, and I’m going to let sunlight kiss the back of my neck. I’m a little bit of a firecracker and firecrackers are a party in themselves. All we need is inner love and everything else will work itself out.

At any moment we can rewrite our lives. We have the power to let go of what doesn’t serve us and embrace and allow in what does. Yes, we’re really that powerful. Take the time to nurture the quiet within, trust the process, let go and fall into the greatest love within your own soul.
