Do You Feel Like You Belong?
Do some days feel like the lonliest? Do some weeks feel like the longest?
Is there a feeling inside where you're not sure you feel anything in particular?
We all need to feel like we belong. We need to belong to our neighbourhood, we need to feel like we're in the right home, the right place, the right address, the right job, the right career, the right relationship and even the right shape we think our body should be!
Do you sometimes feel you're OK, not better, not worse, but doing ok?
When was the last time you knew that you were on the right path? When was the last time you were overjoyed at knowing you were on your way, that you'd found the right way, that you'd discovered everything was going to be ok? Was that a long time ago or yesterday?
Sometimes in life, things happen that shock us. Things like getting fired from your job when you never saw it coming. Something like being given a diagnosis when you didn't think it was possible. Or like when your pet dies suddenly, all these things and much more can be a shock to the emotional system.
Did you know that shock can shut down our desire to dream. That a shock in life, like a parent dying, can set us into a holding pattern where we feel we're not really moving ahead. It's like going round and round in circles, living life, but not really moving forward as the pace as the rest of those we see around us.
Then to top it all off, our mind begins to questions our holding pattern, and thoughts like "it's ground hog week again, why can't some excitement happen or why can't I find what I'm looking for and break this mundane cyle of existence?" and even thoughts of "I'll settle for this, life is OK, it's ok, I'm ok"
What breaks the pattern of mediocrate is feeling like you belong. Once you get that feeling, that you feel relieved, you're finally in the right place, with the right people, or right person, or right job, or right house.....a wave of relief washes over you.
It's like a fog lifts from your mind and heart and you can feel again. And feel you do......because mundane, ho hum feelings can change into joyous feelings in a flash. All because you have finally felt like you belong, or you finally feel as if you've found that missing link, that missing knowing that everything's going to be MORE than OK.
Join a Meditation class. Find out what it feels like to belong. To be in a like-minded group of individuals, that all agree on a level and maybe agree on many levels. Find out what it's like to be in discussions, conversations and communications with people where you get to share your opinion and ideas and their not rebuked.
Find something, somewhere and someone that makes you finally feel like you belong. Because when you do feel like you belong, you'll feel on top of the world again, and you'll feel like you can begin again, and you'll start to really dream and want your dreams to come true.
What does it take? It takes you agreeing, accepting and allowing a small change to occur in your daily life style and through this change, you'll feel like you finally belong. And when you feel like you belong, you'll feel like you've FOUND you again.
Where were you? Hibernating for a while. But, the time's coming to you to come out and step out.
Like the Polar Bear that burried itself in the winter snow, it's now time for YOU to come out into the Sun, and discover what it's like outside again. You just have to take one step in front of the other, and soon enough, life itself will welcome you back onto your path once more. It was always there, but maybe just covered up by the snow (thoughts).
