Wisdom Wednesday #39 – Move Along

Happy Wednesday! If you look back to my posts these past few weeks you’ll see a pattern of posts about struggle and challenge. The fact is, I’ve been within the struggle for sometime, but recently it’s became unbearable.

Life really pushed me these past two weeks. I thought I made the right choice from the start, so the struggle threw me off. This past Sunday I realized that my current challenge was not to endure it. (“The Movement in the Darkness“) I was meant to see and apply my growth to how I processed and responded to that challenge. I was told a few years ago that you can always “choose again,” but I don’t remember that truth in the hardest moments. I made my decision to remove myself from this struggle, because it wasn’t a struggle to endure. It was a struggle to realize I was taking the wrong turn on my journey.

Life always auto corrects. When life isn’t working out, usually its because we are headed in the wrong direction or resisting what we know deep within our heart we need to do to be happy. I wasn’t happy these past two weeks and I felt it all over my body. Nurturing my relationship with my intuition through meditation, breath work, mindfulness and improv has made it easier to navigate life. I see things quicker and can no longer lie to myself about how things truly are in all aspects of my life. I have let go of so much as a result of this shift within myself. I made the right decision to remove myself from the situation because I was relieved after I made my decision. Moments before I made my choice I heard “Move Along” by the All American Rejects. This song helped me get through my betrayal in college (Un-Masked), but this weekend it served as words of encouragement to stay within the game of life versus living life on auto pilot like so many people do.

“Move Along” by the All American Rejects.

Go ahead as you waste your days with thinking
When you fall everyone stands
Another day and you’ve had your fill of sinking
With the life held in your
Hands are shaking cold
These hands are meant to hold

Speak to me, when all you got to keep is strong
Move along, move along like I know you do
And even when your hope is gone
Move along, move along just to make it through
Move along
Move along

So a day when you’ve lost yourself completely
Could be a night when your life ends
Such a heart that will lead you to deceiving
All the pain held in your
Hands are shaking cold
Your hands are mine to hold

Speak to me, when all you got to keep is strong
Move along, move along like I know you do
And even when your hope is gone
Move along, move along just to make it through
Move along
(Go on, go on, go on, go on)

When everything is wrong, we move along
(Go on, go on, go on, go on)
When everything is wrong, we move along
Along, along, along

When all you got to keep is strong
Move along, move along like I know you do
And even when your hope is gone
Move along, move along just to make it through

Right back what is wrong
We move along
