Five Years - Post Eight


Five Years by Corbett Barr

There will be an agreement in whatever variety of actions, so they be each honest and natural in their hour. – Ralph Waldo Emerson
What would you say to the person you were five years ago? What will you say to the person you’ll be in five years?
To Five Years Ago Me: Don't hesitate. Don't think so much. You get that feeling, you go for it and don't worry about what 'others' will think. Speak up for yourself and use direct 'man' language. Don't  suggest. Just say what you need to say and blow away all the fog of 'maybe they think...' because that is just a figment of your imagination. Do the best you can, and then let it go. Stay true to your heart and trust your instincts.  You're right. 
To Five Years Older Me: Sweetheart, you're five years closer to 50.  I hope you're still as hot as you are now and you're still keeping up all that asana practice. How was 2012?  Anything actually happen? You know,  you've seen your future as a hands on healer.Are you doing it? It seems a distant future, but I guess in five years it will be a reality. Did you learn what all of the meridians mean? You were suppose to.  And remember we felt that it was really really important to embody.That it means more than you think. Are you doing it?  
Is Jett fine? You have to take the supportive claws out of him now. We agreed 16 was old enough, yes? And if he gets caught in some kind of drug mess we take him backpacking, or walking the camino or something right? Don't spare the horses and go with your instincts!!!  Have you remembered Mum's birthday.  Please send something. She'd really appreciate it. 
Ok then, hope you're well and everyone is going strong. Love to you from me.

"Don't worry what 'others' will think" and "blow away all the fog of 'maybe they think...' because that is just a figment of your imagintaion."
This is just what I needed to read today. I am trying to learn not to worry about what others think. It is so hard for me. "Stay true to your heart"...I feel like you are speaking to me today!!
Seriously, this is a very inspiring post. Thank you!
Peace, Nico
