Lessons in clouded skies...

Over the past little while...

I've been looking up.

Looking way up high...


High above the trees, past the peak of each hill...


And up...

Up at the clouds.


Each day...

As I look up...

These marshmallow-like puffs have taken over the sky...

Each taking a shape of their own.


Which got me thinking...

As the clouds that wander the wild blue (sometimes grey) yonder...


The skies we sometimes see get clouded over, more and more...

Leaving little space for clarity to shine through.


And this my friends...

Can happen to us all as we go on living, moving, and breathing in all of the busyness that surrounds us.

You know...

That feeling when things get a little clouded over and you feel like...

You can't see clearly?


Well...

I know it happens to me.


With that in mind...

Slowing myself down in moments where I've felt clouded has been good practice for me. (Like blogging with the flow, taking time to see with my eyes, and not my screen...and really, taking time to just be...)


Quite honestly...

It's been good not only for me and my sanity but...

For all those that surround me because...

It's with clear, blue, and open skies that I can live, move, think and breathe freely, all at the same time, while keeping everything in somewhat of straight line! (How can I clear my mind if I never take any time to clear it? right?! right.)

Ahhh...
Clarity.

FUrthemore...

Yes, there's more...

Clouds have been a great reminder of my individual self and my strength.

Individual in a sense that no two clouds are the same and that...

We are all unique (we all are different)...

And realizing that...

It is in these differences where lies our strength.


Our strength to be, strength to continue on and learn from those days that may seem (and actually be) cloudy.

Ultimately, in all of the cloudiness ...

This in turn will give us the strength to grow in every way, shape and form as we work on clearing ourselves of the grey, not the blue and white.


**

All in all...

Remember there is always light waiting to shine through and that...

The sky is truly no limit to what we can achieve if we simply take a moment to see and work past what may seem cloudy to us at the time!


Questions FU You...

Do you ever look up to the sky and see it as a limit?
What ways do you get past the cloudiness? (Slow down, breathe, take a step back, do yoga, exercise, bake?)

  2. This is beautiful, so true. You have such a way of turning perspective around. I think I am in the cloudy skies right now, feeling like a bit of an eeyore with the rain cloud above my head....but I need to turn it around. You are so right, there is always good in the world, and always light trying to shine through. I just need to let it :)

  6. Aaaah I was feeling SO anxious yesterday. Life changes are happening. We're discovering unknowns. I felt like the only way to 'fix' it was to RUN. So I went for a run. And it felt great. I felt great when I was done!

  9. I have caught myself enjoying my surroundings more and enjoying quiet walks alone because this is when I can really think about things and appreciate the good surrounding me.
