The month of January has been both challenging and enlightening. I started my training to become a yoga instructor, while continuing my college education. I’ve been looking for employment closer to home. I commute sixty miles every day. I’ve started a campaign called “Dear Lioness” with the intentions of empowering women. My daughter started the “big kids” class at her school, she is simply amazing. Once the clock hit midnight December 2015 I began this journey and know that all the changes that need to be made, will be.
My yoga training has brought past issues to light for me and its only week two. This has been the first time in my life I’ve meditated consistently. Meditating has enlightened me of my adult behavior. I’m aware of how my thoughts and emotions have driven many of my decisions. As I continue to go deeper into the practice things are unfolding, blossoming before me. My emotions are being evaluated by my logic, my reactions being altered by deep breathing. My connection to God being strengthened, I have become aware that I was never alone. Even when my mind wanted me to believe that I was. God, The Most High, has continued to be here loving, protecting and guiding me. I’ve always been blessed with these things without me being truly aware of it, questioning if God really had purpose for me.
Well, I know now without a doubt WE ALL HAVE A PURPOSE. We are all protected, loved, and whole if we choose to be aware of it. Even during the storm we can focus on the light, having faith that the lessons we endure will help us to continue to grow.
What I understand now is that the more you work on self, the more you give yourself time to understand who you truly are. You can change your perspective about life. Your cup will always be half full. We have to unlearn the conditioning of what was taught to us as children. Releasing the fairytale of what life is supposed to enjoy the journey. Everything I’ve been through has created who I am today. I am falling in love with who I am as I peel back layers that once held me tightly like a warm blanket on a cold night. I don’t need them anymore. I release the “As Seen On T.V.” life knowing I have family, friends, and a support system that is in place whenever I need. I am thankful to God for continuing to provide and protect me.
Love & Light
