Every day I allow myself space to breathe, stretch and nurture my soul
Bless you Gentle Reader and how are you today? Thank you for taking the time to pop over and visit Fab after Fifty’s weekly Monday Moment Of Calm. A quiet space online where you can, in the business of your day, breathe, reconnect with your inner heart song and remember how beautiful and majestic you are.
Today’s Moment of Calm, Overcoming Heartache, is slightly in a different vibe in that I’m sharing part of my process and journey into allowing more moments of calm into my life.. Overcoming Heartache is a poem I wrote and would like to share with you to encourage you—and therefore myself- to shine, stand strong in your power and be proud of who you are.
Overcoming Heartache is inspired by a conversation I had with a friend where we were talking about our dreams and aspirations for the future. As we spoke my mind ran over the various ups and downs of life I’ve gone through and how easy it is for me to sometimes get stuck in past memories and loss my focus. In those moments, I forget how much I have achieved and overcome and stay locked in the pain. When I’m in this space, peace feels like an elusive feather, something other people have yet somehow eludes me.
In the past I used to wonder how do you “do” peace? What is it “peaceful people” have, that I don’t have? And how do I get it. I wanted to feel peace, I wanted to experience the opposite of fear and stress yet didn’t know how to cross that bridge.
Through the process of learning how to meditate, how to breathe and seek the inner peace within, I now understand how to do peace. How to breathe, be still and be at peace. I still have a long way to, yet in writing and sharing Overcoming Heartache I feel able to finally put my past to rest. To give myself permission to let go of the limiting beliefs that struggle is the only way forward and fully embrace the words which flow so easily through me and experience my own Moment of Calm.
It’s time to move on
To lay the ghosts of the past behind
Time to shine, to let the sunshine through my heart.
Time to embrace my beauty, my strength, my light.
Time to breathe
Time to be me.
Final Thoughts and Reflections
Feeling peaceful and calm comes from within. There may be times in your life when inner peace and serenity seem far away and no matter what you do you can’t find it. When you feel like this, just breathe and honour the space you are in.
And to complete the circle of love, we would love you to share today’s post with friends and loved ones via Twitter or facebook to create a circle of light and calm around the web.
