DAY 365+115

you can opt

for living with fear or letting it go

for keeping your chains or breaking free

for staying in the shadow or walking through the light

for being in the past or moving forward

for complaining or making decisions

for feeling pain or healing yourself

for repressing yourself or going with the flow

for rejecting or embracing

for denying or accepting

for punishing yourself or practicing kindness

for being ungrateful or appreciating life

for allowing aggressions or setting boundaries

for being perfect or taking risks

being as expected or having some fun

Maybe you come from a dysfunctional family, or have gone through hard experiences. Maybe your beloved ones have disappointed you in unthinkable ways or you have had to deal with pain, illness or any other kind of crisis.

Maybe you see yourself as a loser and think you have not the adequate foundations, the right skills or tools. Maybe you feel your happiness is a lost cause, maybe you feel you don´t even deserve it.  Maybe you think that changing is not an option. So what? You can opt. You can always opt.

You may think I am a fool. But I am not. I have opted  for releasing me from conditionings regardless of my fear, hard experiences, disappointments and pain,  even when I thought that maybe love and joy were words too big for me. And that simple act has led me to the better place I have been so far.

I am discovering that options are endless (and not mutually exclusive) just because I can keep opting every single day of my life. Because -as incredible as this may seem- this is up to me.

PS: As usual, the image has inspired me those thoughts. Here you can see the silhouette of my husband near my mom´s house. He is one of the persons that has helped me more to understand that indeed I can opt.
