Today I got thinking about how most people live their life me included, we live wrapped up in a lot of irrational fears. Fears about not having money, not being liked, not being good enough, and the list goes on,, but in reality we all have everything we need to be happy inside as from the day we were . Which got me thinking about the movie The Wizard of Oz, each of the characters goes on a pilgrimage to find something they believe they lack, the Tin man is in search of a heart, the lion in search of courage,the straw man in search of a brain and Dorothy in search of a way to get back home.They walk all the way to Oz for a fake wizard to tell " You already have in you what you need to do great things, you just need to believe in you" . Maybe that is why pilgrimages are becoming more popular people are walking to find something inside of themselves. I certainly know that after our 2013 pilgrimage threw Spain something fundamentally had changed in our thinking. During our time on this pilgrimage I have felt a fundamental shift in my thinking. I have become more aware of my self talk, and more aware of the "predjuses" I unconsciously bring into my day to day life.
Grateful today for everything, today was a good day. Grateful for relaxing lunches, even sitting on a the side of a busy road, our lunches seem to be relaxed and calm. Grateful for my daughter Icant believe how wonderful she is. (I know biased mother)
