Haiku for the 90s.

garbage on the radio
gwen was just a girl.
……..
daylight fades gently
peeking through the telescope
her rings shine brightly.
……..
starry sky above
the mountain stretches its roots
into the shadows.
……..
rifling through a box
faded ink on a post-it
all that’s left of you.

Let go of that which doesn’t serve you.

Beautiful woman standing behind a large leaf.

I know a woman who won’t travel more than 4 hours from her home. This means she can barely make it to Lake Erie, a couple of other cities, and some state parks. That’s it.

She’s told herself the story that she can’t travel more than 4 hours from home and she’s come to believe it. She has no actual handicaps or disabilities. It’s not true; it’s just the belief she holds. It dictates her life, as well as the life of her husband and children.

Does this belief serve her well? No. It only serves to keep her from exploring and experiencing life beyond her hone. It keeps her children from being able to explore mountains, oceans, or desert terrains. It benefits no one. What beliefs are you holding that don’t serve you?
