Spread 253 – Found in Assertion February 8, 2015

253-Found in Assertion

I’ve been living the illusion of being free and at the same time with the knowing that I wasn’t at all. Next week I’ll turn 56 and can say, ever so delicately, that I am free, that I feel it in my body, and that I feel it not being an illusion. I feel like I earned every line in my skin. I feel all my flaws huddling, rushing to tell a truer story about who I’ve been and where I am going. I am not ashamed of my self.

Thank you Orly for your beautiful work and for sharing your thoughts. You are reminding me of where I was 20 years ago when I decided to set myself free. I was exactly your age. I decided that I was worth getting a second chance. It was the kindest thing that I had ever done for myself. Now, years later, I am happy, very blessed and at peace.

I wish the same for you… Sylvia

Your words are like music and it sounds to me as if your favorite song is now playing. A very happy birthday and cheers to the wonder that lies ahead!

I am glad you found your freedom; it is harder to be free when one is alone in life, than when one is surrounded by others. It seems easier to run from the pack than to run from oneself. For me, it was difficult but not impossible to “run” from those around me, and that which I am involved with; being alone leaves me without motivation.
