Here's to change

A dear friend sent me this quote...

"Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all barriers within yourself that you have built against it." - Jalal ad-Din RumiWrite

I've recently lost special beings in my life. I never really thought about what I did wrong or how I could have prevented making the same mistakes. Until a few weeks ago did I realize these losses were challenges for me to create happy, long lasting and healthy relationships. Jalal ad-Din Rumi inspired me to look at my failed friendships and past relationships. To see where I went wrong, and what were my faults. I carried so much negative baggage that it manifested into my new relationships. Or maybe it was that I attracted negative people because of my baggage. Either way, I didn't give myself time to heal, to accept responsibility and look at what I want. When you go in knowing what you want, you get what you want...

This quote was so inspirational to me that I wanted to share it with you. So many of us never realize our flaws, what we did wrong and because of that, we never heal, and hinder ourselves from growth. I hope this touched you as it did for me. Anywho, here's to new beginnings and changes!!!

  1. wow. This post speaks volumes. I am so very glad you are finally blogging....beautiful post. I have to completely and utterly agree with you. We carry so much baggage with us. If we could only accept that and continue to move on we wouldnt be so weighed down and we would be more open to love and allowing positive and healthy realtionships to thrive in our lives. U took so much more from this qoute then I did. I am very glad I sent it to you because although I read it I dont think I truely took the time to dissect it and let it inspire me the way you did.
