How To Get Back On Track
How wonderful it is to get back on track! Thank You, God, first of all, for the opportunity to do so. And hey, if you're reading this, you're alive too so consider that is opportunity knocking for you as well! Woo hoo!!!!!!!!!!!! Baby, we've got miles to go in this life of ours – at least we sure hope so – so, let's do this!
Now, where the heck have I been? Oh, well, ahem… In one simple word? Struggling. There. Ugh! It's annoying to even say it but that's alright. I just did and I lived. The good news about struggling and about having been off track is that it reminded me – yet again – that I'm HUMAN. Hello! Houston! Newsflash once more… Narah Valenska Smith, hear me out! says my soul. You are HUMAN, baby! Easy on yourself now!
All I can humbly say is, Amen.
The fact that I am human does not give me license to get off track but it surely explains why I do. Same for you. Being human means we will not be perfect. No way, no how, not ever. So, what matters at this point is that I am here now. If you were inside my brain, this is what you would hear my little voice say: Whew! I have found my way back home! Thank You, Jesus! You wouldn't hear my heart saying anything though. It would just beat along all-knowingly and joyfully as if to say: Baby, I knew you'd return to me all along.
So, how do you get back on track? You follow your heart, my friend. No matter how long you've been gone, you listen and you follow the voice of your soul. That's the only real strategy you will ever really need in life. Just follow your heart all the way Home.
This may seem overly simplistic at first glance, of course, but I promise you this one thing: life's truths are ALL very simple. The fact that we humans love to complicate things does not change that fact. To get back on track, you must remember your true self, listen to your spirit, and simply follow your heart. Now go do just that!
All my love to you always,
Narah – #BeTheRealYou
