Secure Yourself

Monday, November 10th, 2014 7

Amidst the recent swirling, I’ve been reflecting on my one word for the year. Secure. Not only is this my word for the year, it is one of my core desired feelings. It is how I want to feel, what I want to manifest, and the place from which I want my life to spring forth. This word has been a guidepost for me this year. When I can’t see the forest for the trees, when I’m in the thick of the swirling, I reach for it time and time again.

And as much as I need the love and support of others — as much as we all do — I’ve been reminded recently that this feeling, this desire, has to come from within. That at the end of the day, I’m searching for my own internal place to rest in all that secure embodies.

Then, as I was driving home from the grocery yesterday, an old favorite Indigo Girls song “randomly” came on…

“Secure yourself to heaven.
Hold on tight, the night has come.
Fasten up your earthly burdens,
You have just begun.”

That’s right. This journey, in so many ways, is in its tender dawn. I have just begun. And that sense of trust, feeling rooted and secure, will come. It will come.

    so true. I wonder sometimes why it takes so long? Funny I was just watching Ellen, I really love her and she had a celebrity on who basically said what you feel, what I feel. So strange. I wonder what it feels like. Secure. and what a great song.

    hearing you – definitely hearing you! I’m realising It is here all the time, just clouded by thoughts sometimes – that is all. Hugs to you x

  4. What a beautiful portrait, Meghan. And yes, at the end of the day, we have only to look to ourselves. Much love to you.
