There are some words that just capture the things that matter so well.
Like many things, media is a powerful tool that has the ability to give us a lens into ourselves… but it can also be used to manipulate and separate.
It’s easy for me to focus on the things that I hate about media… but then I remember the ultimate power of media comes from within and what we allow to hold space.
I don’t watch a ton of television anymore, but I remember being pulled into Grey’s Anatomy just like so many people and the character of Meredith is relatable in many ways.
She begs a man to love her, while also being a strong capable woman…
No woman wants to see herself in a situation in which she begs a man to love her, yet many of us find ourselves in just that position.
Because, ultimately, we do want to love and be loved. We want to be chosen.
Until we learn to adequately love and choose ourselves, we look for this validation from outside sources.
Once we learn to choose and love ourselves it doesn’t hurt quite as much when others choose not to.
Not to say it still doesn’t hurt, it does – but we recognize that we don’t WANT someone incapable of choosing us AND we know that not everyone can or will.
Since we do have this limited life experience, we do want to choose wisely what we do with the time that we have.
What kind of life do we want to live? Who do we want to love and be loved by? Are we the best version of ourselves that we can be?
Deciding can be hard… it means choosing a course of action… but as long as we FIRST choose ourselves our actions will be in tune with our flow state and with our heart’s resonance.
So, breathe in. Breathe out and decide.
