No Longer Escaping


For a long time, I have been escaping from myself and my life.  I ran from place to place and relationship to relationship, while hoping to find peace, happiness, and contentment.  What I did find was myself at the end of each of these attempts. It was amazing that I could not understand why I couldn’t escape my pain and suffering.

Wherever I ran, there I was, and I had no way to hide from myself.  For the first time in my life, I am going toward what I want in my life.  I am no longer unhappy with my life, and trying to find happiness and peace elsewhere.  I finally feel really happy in my life, and I want to share this happiness with others who are more like me.

In my current life, I met a man who writes beautiful music for me, cares for me, is creative, is intelligent, is honest, and is kind to me.  I always wondered why the men in my life never did these things for me, and I have asked for this in my life for a long time.  I also want to continue my current work near my family as I am ready to reconnect with them, and begin a Reiki practice to help others heal.  This is what I am moving towards and not running from my current life.   I don’t know how long anything will last, but it simply doesn’t matter.

Finally, I don’t need to run away from myself as I truly like being with myself, and like who I have become.  Others want to be with me too because I am finally happy, grateful, and live a peaceful life now, and I think others want this for themselves too.  I finally stopped running away, and am moving toward an amazing future. I think I finally found my way in my life! (Copyright 2016 Awakening Journey with All Rights Reserved)

  1. When the running stops, peace becomes a part of you, and an acceptance like no other settles around you, then you finally ‘know’ what unconditional love is….self love. The truth at last of what we truly are within 🙂
    Take a bow young lady, it is a huge journey. But in hindsight, a very loving one 🙂
