I was talking to a friend tonight, and he said I was "looking, rather than creating."
I've felt too drained to create. So I've been looking.
Looking outside myself to find ease and fulfillment. Looking to other people, to money, to success (whatever the hell that is) to fill me up.
I know better. Of course I do.
But when you're drained dry, it becomes very hard to recall that hard-earned wisdom when you need it most.
It's hard to self-source when you feel like you have nothing left. Even when that's not even remotely true. We always have access to this bottomless well of love and peace. Sometimes we just forget where the trap door is.
It's why people who talk about this stuff tend to harp on endlessly about self-love and filling your own cup.
Yeah, sorry about that. I know how annoying it can be.
Especially when you've been draining your own cup for so long, that you have no idea what this mythical overflowing cup even looks like, much less how to get one.
Which is why I feel so good about taking some time to just stop.
Stop huffing endlessly on the hamster wheel of trying to make things happen and just allow whatever is.
No more trying. Just being.
No more doing. Just feeling.
I can't wait to see what unfolds.
