Nothing is inherently wrong
What does it mean to you?
Did you add the weight that’s crushing that thing?
That place where you go numb – rather than make another
What does it mean?
Meaning is everything
Does a temporary loss mean failure
Are you are a failure?
Or does it mean growth
Stepping stones into uncertainty
But you decide the outcome
Because you get to apply the label
Writing in bold pen
This is what I say it is
And it is
And when you truly understand this
Meaning what it does
To do nothing
*Look back on your life story and see what could be changed if you simply changed the meaning that you originally applied to an event. I have found this quite an extraordinary exercise.
Note – this doesn’t mean changing the truth of what happened – it means looking at the emotional filter you applied at the time. So many things in retrospect I would not change simply because of the learning and growth that came from the event.
Changing the meaning and emotions under which they are filed though has been a game changer in terms of how heavy some memories had become.
