I've been listening to this song a lot lately, and I think that it describes my current mood perfectly.
When I give up control and l let you hold me with no resistance in my soul
This is the day when I throw it all away to the fire of the all loving one
Now I have just what I need to be free to feel who I really am.
I've been holding myself back , only partly being who I was made to be.
This is not to say that I've arrived and am exactly who I was made to be, however I feel that I have opened myself to allow the journey to take place.
I was giving all kinds of people power over my life.
I was making decisions based on how I thought others were going to react.
Then I realized that no matter what, I can't always make everyone happy. Instead of trying to please others I need to focus my energy on trying to be who God created me to be.
There is amazing freedom in the reality of letting go. I am no longer in control, neither are those around me.
This does not mean that life has suddenly become simple or that there are no bumps in the road.
It means that I feel free, happy.
It means that I can look at what is taking place around me and learn.
It means that I'm growing.
My happiness and freedom are reflected in each scarf that I create. I hope that the scarf you adopt, brings happiness and freedom into your life.
