Do you remember her?
That little girl who would squeal with delight at things that today seem so uneventful.
The one who laughed. Who made others laugh. Who felt happy. Not a care in the world.
Well… Life happened.
People started telling her what was right and wrong, what she should or shouldn’t think, feel, believe.
Her parents. Her siblings. Her teachers. Her friends. Her family. And as she grew up and had access to different people, situations and media, she changed.
Not in one go.
Slowly and gradually.
She lost her spontaneity. She lost her sense of self.
Something doesn’t feel quite right.
Even though she does have a nice life. Even though she is happy. Well, sort of happy…
She can’t really complain, can she?
She shouldn’t complain, after all there are other people who are in a much worse situation than she is!
Yet… it’s as if she has somehow lost herself along the way.
She can’t quite put her finger on it, but if she is really honest she doesn’t feel much joy.
She feels rather hollow most of the time.
As if something is missing.
But, she’s not really gone.
She’s still there.
Trapped inside. Waiting to come out.
So… Get aligned with your inner truth and you will meet her again, even if it’s been a long time since you’ve seen her.
Because she’s still in there.
Now go and get her and bring her back.
Because this is where she belongs.
In the here and now.
