Lighten Up!

The time for heaviness is past – heaviness of body, mind, spirit, and heart.  That heaviness many of us felt was part of a time now gone.  It’s time to lighten up.

“He was a different person,” she said. “Cheerful. Happy. Fun to be around. Things that used to bother him no longer did.” The woman was talking about her husband of only three years. She dated him for a long time. Then after nearly dying of a heart attack, he was changed, transformed. They married and had the three best years of their lives before he died.”  Those years were possible because he learned to enjoy life, learned the value of love.

We don’t have to wait to open our hearts and enjoy life. We don’t have to wait to lighten up. We can do that now. We know that we can trust, that we can journey through each stage of our lives with open hearts, loving, living freely.

Let go of heaviness. Seek that which is light. Gravitate towards joy. Your soul and body will lead you, if only you will listen. Walk lightly. Speak and laugh lightly, as much as possible. Go lightly along you way. .....Melodie Beattie
