Sometimes we need to have a look at what surrounds us to feel that we are part of it, that we belong to this place, this time. I call that a moment of eternity. This deep feeling that everything is where it’s supposed to be, how it’s supposed to be. It doesn’t matter what happened or what will occur. Right now, right here, we feel we belong.
I often felt out of place when I was younger. Then I realised that if there is no place for me to feel good, it was because I just had to create my own place. Nevertheless, it was just recently I decided to actually do it. To just stop trying to belong to something I can’t relate to and to walk my own path. Those who know me weren’t really surprised, but to me, it was something I NEEDED to do if I wanted to feel alive again. So one morning, I decided this was the first one of the rest of my life. Nothing really changed in fact: I was still living at the same address, still working in the same school, still doing what I used to do before that. What changed is the way I saw and lived it.
Friends told me I changed. I walked in a different way, my whole attitude was shifting, from the ‘regular me’ to someone else. I was still me but a different one that they used to perceive. I smiled. What they call the ‘regular me’ what just the part of me I wanted them to see, the one I felt acceptable to show. What they see now it just… plain old me.
I won’t hide anymore. I freed myself from the perceptions people may or may not have of me. It’s time for me to stop trying being someone they would accept as the ‘regular me’. It almost killed me spiritually to try to be that person. It almost killed this little spark I carry within. Now I let it shine fully, proudly, and I must say that it feels really good just to think that we are part of the universe, and that we should be proud of that simple thought.
So here is your challenge:

Here are the rules of the challenge:

And here is my card
As I was typing this post, I looked outside…. and here is the response I received:
It feels really good to be where you are supposed to be, when you are supposed to be
