Last night was date night for my BF and I.
The original plan was to go hit some golf balls at the driving range but it was closed so we went to the movies instead.
We saw Pitch Perfect 3 - Clearly I chose the movie...
During the final scene I had an internal click when some lyrics in Beca's version of George Michaels FREEDOM 90' hit me.
''All we have to do now
Is take these lies and make them true somehow
All we have to see
Is that I don't belong to you
And you don't belong to me yeah yeah''
How frekin powerful is this?!
This reminder honestly blew my mind.
Well I had been feeling off the past few days, lacking love & just questioning a lot of things in my life. I realised that with a new job, trying to get used to a new routine, late nights & no energy mornings. I was running on almost empty & looking to my Boyfriend to help fill me up again WHICH DOES NOT WORK!
We literally have everything we need inside of us & looking outside of ourselves to solve our problems only makes things worse & it did! I created a problem where there wasn't one... (sorry babe).
After clearing things up within myself & making a plan that includes more time for me & the things that fuel me to be all I want to be in this world, then watching this movie & hearing those lyrics stick out it confirmed my realisation.
''Take these lies'' - The things in life that don't serve us, that don't empower us, that don't allow us to be happy or ourselves.
''Make them true'' - What's true for YOU? What do YOU think & feel about the things in your life? If they feel like lies come back to whats true for you and make them your TRUTH!
''I don't belong to you and you don't belong to me'' - You are not owned by your partner, your parents, your job or your friends and the same goes for the opposite. So when you really want things to be your way just understand that those around you do not belong to you. They chose for themselves in every moment just like you!
Do you find yourself overwhelmed with a feeling of control for others or frustration with them not doing what you want them to ? Why not try reminding yourself this - They don't belong to you and you don't belong to them!
See if this helps you to stay calm and act with love.
