“Your task is not to seek love, but to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.”– Rumi.
Let’s just go ahead and call this ‘Love Week’ here in the Wise Words section, shall we?
Yesterday, I shared a love poem from the indomitable poet, Pablo Neruda, and today’s quote comes from Rumi. And yes…as you read, it’s about love. But again, I’m going to flip it on its head and talk about self-love.
Far too often we put barriers in the way of our own success. Perhaps you can’t get over the ex who did you wrong so you take it out on everyone you’ve dated since, or maybe you can’t shake the fact that you’ve faltered at your job so you continue to question your abilities. Whatever the hang-up may be, you’ve got to shake it off if you plan on moving forward and living the life you desire.
Let’s get ready to live our most awesome life, Clutchettes!
