Personal, Still, She Rises

Stop Holding Back + Open Up To All That You Are…

Stop holding back & open up to all that you are…

You say you don’t know how,
You say you don’t know what it is you want for yourself, to see in yourself.
I call lies to this.
You know what you want, you’re just not listening to those little whispers.
The truth is quiet.
The truth comes from your soul, a peaceful place that is calm and gentle,
You’re just allowing all the noise around you,
All the busyness to distract you from your truth.
You’re not giving yourself the time or space to be with yourself.
You have time, you have the space, if you want it, you can find it.
For all that we want, we will make time for, we will make space for.
Stop giving time to things that take you away from what you really want for yourself.
Get clear, filter out the noise and make the time and space for you.

Your truth is there.
It is waiting for you to pay attention.
To listen, to go for it, even if it scares you.

Who do you want to be in this world.
How do you want to show up in this world.

As you start to listen, as you start to feel into the person you wish to be,
At times it may feel uncomfortable,
At times people may look and wonder what’s happening here,
But just stay true to you.
Hold your space for yourself.
Allow it all to come out of you as you wish it to be.

For quite some times, I felt hard inside of me, a heaviness that sat with me everyday.
I felt I had a very hard exterior,
I felt like I wasn’t approachable, I actually know I wasn’t,
Some days I still feel this way.

But as time passes, I feel myself softening to life, allowing myself to be more open.
I’ve longed to feel more feminine within myself, for myself.
I allowed that side of me to close down for many years,
To not express myself in a way I truly wanted to,
This was due to the shame I carried inside of me.
And what others would think of me.
Now that I have allowed the shame to move on,
I am opening up, I am allowing myself to be seen again.
Allowing myself to see me as I am,
Allowing myself to hold myself in a way that feels right for me,
Allowing myself to express myself in which ever way works for me,
Allowing myself to be more open to the world and all that it has to offer.

It’s about giving yourself the permission to be who ever you wish to be.
To not be who you think you should be for others, that will not bring you the fulfilment you need.
But more so to give yourself what you want and need.

My two top love languages are touch and words of affirmation.
It’s up to me to give this to myself first.
To find ways that include these two love languages into my days.
If I’m unable to do this for myself first, it will be challenging to ask of it from others.
It’s about getting creative, it’s about being able to fill myself up first.
The more I do this for me, means that any time I receive it from others I feel it more, It hits me deeper in a good way.

The more you open up to all that you are with acceptance, love, compassion, forgiveness
The more life will meet you with what you wish for.
You have one life, move through it in a way that works for you.

Put your hand up to others opinions of you and make your opinion of yourself a strong one, a kind one, a loving one and the only one you listen to,
Because only you know whats best for you.
Stand tall,
Take responsibility for yourself,
Own your space,
And have fun with your life.
