The End of Certain Life Lessons

When certain relationships have gone as far as they can

I’ve often felt that once we are really done with learning a lesson —

be it ending a toxic relationship by asserting our boundaries

letting go of whatever impressions we’ve outgrown (or what holds onto us)

learning to say, no! and sticking with it

It then opens a multitude of doors to newer opportunities that match with our new and well-earned frequency of self-respect.

Something has changed and we see our self differently; and in that accordance we know it’s time.

Maybe we stop striving for love in a loveless relationship, or we seek friendships that have more meaning.

Maybe we realize we will no longer allow our self to be abused and mistreated.

Maybe we finally see — that our thoughts, ideas, sensitivities and feelings deserve more respect.

We’ve finished with that lesson and we want more integrity and depth and meaning.

We are aware of what we want, and how to be treated.

For example, we see that love is a highway with exits and off-ramps that circle back with tender reflections and are no long a toll booth masquerading with a price.

Of course, there will be blimps on the GPS of our navigations, and we’ll hit potholes and maybe even drive the wrong way on a one-way street.

However, we see it sooner and put up a stop sign instead of a yield.

We just know — that certain relationships have gone as far as they can. Even in our wildest dreams they can’t be had.

And inside of this aha! of synchronicity we breathe deeper, feeling our lungs flourish and our heart growing a field of wild flowers.

We can’t be held back any longer because the plurality of possibilities has burst through our subconscious and has tapped into our soul’s being letting us know –

You’ve done the work.

You’ve seen the signs.

You are ready to let go of whatever it is repeating its teachings.

You are the mix of that child-adult-winged being ready — oh, so very ready to soar once more to the next level of insights where intuition is the feather and the sea of your wings.

Be that and don’t stop.

Letting go is courage for seeing who you really are.

Life lessons unfold the paradigms within us readying us to explore all of that which makes us who we really are.
