Choose

Greetings!

I feel like it has been ages since I have written but, as always, life happens- minutes turn to hours, hours turn to days, and on and on. And for someone like me, although I understand that the concept of time is man-made and very linear in our Western world, time seems to fly at times, stand still at others, but I digress.

The last time we “spoke”, I spoke about giving up and the frustration of my experience with striving for my dreams and calling in this life. Well, now I am sitting in a place of yet another transformation.

I have spoken time and time again about how we should be progressing and personal evolution. But, choosing to embrace the fact that I am changing, that the things/people/places that I used to run to, may not be serving my highest good, is at times difficult.

And this is what separates the people who live the most authentic and fulfilling lives, and those that don’t. There is a certain level of diligence, courageousness, and sheer determination that is required to allow yourself to grow, be tested, and to move from level to level in your life’s journey. The end reward is profound peace and joy.

If you are frustrated with your life, feeling lost on the path, and wondering what your next move should be, first take three deep breaths. Then survey your life- are you working a job just for the check but deep down you know you should be doing something else? Are you in a relationship that is draining your energy instead of feeding your soul? Are you feeling inclined to pursue some different activities but, you are afraid of what might be said or what others think?

Follow your heart’s calling. It may not be easy to do. The question is would you rather look back on your life and review the fullness of it, knowing that you have lived your life being genuine and experiencing everything that you desired, authentically serving your highest good, fulfilling your destiny or would you rather sit with regret? The choice is of course yours. Choose wisely.

Think about it.

Peace,

I Give Up

So, it has been approximately 58 days since my last blog post. And I had every intention on writing this awesomely positive, inspirational, and heartwarming piece as I step back into the arena but, I think we would all be better served if I just allow my heart to pour out.

In the past few months, I have had multiple things happen that were not pleasant at all- from car issues, family loss, and other discomforts, let’s just say that I am happy that we are in a new season. But, I still am finding myself searching, struggling, and striving for the life that I truly want.

In the past few months, I have grown into gifts that I had kept mostly to myself. I began to strengthen my intuitive abilities, read Tarot cards, and attained Master level in my Reiki training. So, all has not been lost but, I still cannot help but to feel a type of way.

Most of us have had that feeling of utter defeat and discouragement when we feel we should be further along than we are. I have felt that way for most of my life. It is like my desires for fulfillment are just out of reach and no matter what I do, I won’t ever be able to touch it. But, my drive to succeed and live authentically causes me to never give up. I mean never…

So, although today I do not feel the most encouraged, though I do not see the fruits of the seeds I have been planting, though I feel like a failure, tomorrow I will muster the strength to try again. My spirit is composed mostly of determination and at times, utter stubbornness. Instead of throwing in the towel, I usually end up swinging it around my head like a helicopter (insert laughter here).

And I feel better already so, back to the drawing board to complete my master plan (insert evil genius laughter here). I think my best course of action is to just let go, release, and allow what is meant to happen to do so. The constant striving is exhausting…..

 

Peace,
