Trapped in the past

I got trapped up this morning..

in the past

Pictures in my little black box
of life
Otherwise known as
MY PHONE

And it’s funny how our minds can play tricks on us
sometimes

Or rather
quite a lot

You see,
We’re drawn to capture the good stuff
The highlights of our lives

Rarely do we have captured
all moments of
Stress
of tears
Frustration
Neglect
Or pain

But we experience these emotions.

Yet when we look back,
It’s as if our minds play tricks on us

The past looks like a dream
you know what I mean

Instagram and Facebook
Pictures hung on the walls

Moments locked in time
time’s the greatest mystery of all

And when we’re feeling hopeless
or feeling blue
and decide to take a look back
at time once passed..

It’s as if we believe the illusions placed
right in front of us

That the best days
are
BEHIND us

The good ol’ days..
as they say

When in reality,
we’ll look back years later
to THIS VERY MOMENT

and believe just the same.

So, what about
just for a moment
we took a chance
to believe
that

We ARE
in fact
IN the good ol’ days
now

THIS VERY MOMENT..?

How much different could our lives truly be?

If we walked
and talked
and truly LIVED
like we’re actually EXCITED
to be alive?

Not everyone has the luxury..

Don’t you realize
Just how lucky you really ARE?

Yeah
it’s easy to forget
I get it completely

Which is why
while I’m writing this for YOU
I’m really writing this
For ME

I spend so much of my life looking OUTwards
at every one else’s lives

Wishing
and fantasizing
like

“If only I had THAT life, how much more amazing could MY LIFE really be..?”

Comparison

The joy killer of all things
gorgeous
and beautiful

While we’re wishing away at someone else’s life
They’re secretly wishing desperately for ours..

While we’re looking BACK
thinking the magic
in it all

is now gone
and lost forever,

We’re missing out
on the giant life
lying just before us

It’s a funny funny world
we’re living in

And all I can say
in this moment
would be:

“Be here now.”

Simply.

Place your focus towards all that you DO have
Right now
in this very moment

You’re doing amazing

There’s no need for you to “make certain”
by going online
to check and see

what everyone else is up to
what everyone else is doing

Learn to
TRUST YOURSELF child

You’re wiser than you even know

There’s a guidance system built
inside you
listen.

And find a way to walk confidently
with the knowledge that this moment
Right here and now

Is a memory worth remembering too.

I love you,
You’re amazing.

Keep going,
you’re doing an incredible job

Simply listen,
Be here now
Find your focus
And smile

knowing that humble
little secret
that

The best is yet to come..

Kisses and hugs,
💜 Brittany
