Envelopes…

The sun sets on another day…

Today was a lost day. A personal issue pressing me to sleep, and waking only as the sun was already down. Still as I woke I pressed to be normal, no matter how I felt, no matter what.

There are envelopes all around us. The envelope of our friends, the envelope of our family, the envelope of what we want to do, and the envelope of what we can do. There are envelopes of our dreams, and envelopes of our nightmares and our limitations. We have an envelope for those things that hold us down, our pain, our preconceived notions, and one for our powers and abilities, Envelopes abound and we rarely consider them except to say “I want to” or “I will” and of course the immortal “if only”.

Stop, hold yourself for a moment. (Not that tightly). Wait a minute, consider all your envelopes, and it is time to set them aside. 

We talk about pushing the envelope all the time, but maybe we need to stop considering the envelopes and instead push who we are and who we want to be. Instead of being lost in our limitations why don’t we grasp our power and move forward. (Should we call those tations instead of limitations?” Why don’t we become all we can be not because of our envelopes, but in spite of or outside of our envelopes.

As we do so let’s enjoy the ride and be that person that slides ahead smiling and laughing with no envelopes, and no regrets.

I know quite a few people. I know of some that are  punishing themselves for things they could not control. One has an envelope forged by things they regret but built on desires and amazing goals. One has an envelope others have built, and they are imprisoned by their own positive nature. One has an envelope that fills with ore and more, and they press to solve it all. One has a series of hidden envelopes that may never be shared. The point is all these envelopes are different, and as I said, it is time to set them aside.

So as the sun set son another day, set aside your envelope and focus on you. Focus on the best you that you can be. Push past your limitations and towards your goals and make every day your own. I know you can do it if you try, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and enjoy it….
