I was unprepared for the torrential downpour,
Searching for answers, yet tough questions were my reward,
Surrounded by freak weather, I couldn’t see through the fog,
Bombarded so ferociously, I feared it wouldn’t stop.
Scared stiff and feeling lost, losing control,
Stripped of my defences all the way down to my soul,
I surrendered to the Universe, the clouds soon cleared,
By letting go, you too, can dissipate your fears.

One of the gorgeous souls I have the pleasure of knowing, wrote a moving piece a while back and decided to share it with us recently. It touched me deeply, and I had the realisation that while I’d gone through a similar struggle, I hadn’t really spoken about it openly, which is odd for lil’ ole me!
It was around four and a half years ago, a close family member of mine was losing the battle to Cancer, with only weeks to live, I’d also recently moved to a new City for work, which was very demanding of my time and emotions, plus there were bills, and other issues all piling up on top of me.
Out of nowhere, I began having panic attacks, the anxiety was intense, I didn’t know what was going on, it was unlike anything I’ve ever felt, the sense of helplessness was totally overpowering. I wrestled with it, but it got worse. Long story short, the only thing that worked was acceptance.
I knew there was little I could do, so I meditated on it, finally finding the lessons that I clearly needed. I found my way out by lessening my grip, and trying not to control things so much. Dark times are inevitable, but it’s how you respond that matters… focus on your blessings and lessons people!
Love and Respect always,
