In recent weeks, I had been feeling a growing urge to write. I surmised it may have stemmed from my lack of self-expression through writing and that I simply wanted to reclaim this sanctuary in order to process my thoughts and feelings. To take a step back, look inward and reflect on my growth, self-love and self-discovery. Unfortunately, work got in the way and it was crunch time so it couldn’t be helped.
Since my last post, I’ve been focusing my energy and time on myself which resulted in me feeling more alive and rejuvenated. I was reminded that I can be happy on my own. I was reminded that I have so much love to give and that I don’t ever want to run out of it.
I honestly don’t think I would’ve gotten to this point if I hadn’t opened up and let myself be more vulnerable to my loved ones who have been nothing but supportive, loving and understanding.
I’ve also been having a lot of deep conversations with my soul tribe about emotions, life, spiritual awakening and mindfulness. I didn’t think that doing so would be so freeing, especially when you talk about things from an objective point of view. It’s also been helpful in framing my ways of approaching my past, my present and my future.
I won’t deny that there have been recurring moments when my resolve is shaky or when my growth feels static, but I remember reading somewhere that these moments are not meant to bring me down but rather to open my eyes so that I can move forward, ascend to my higher self and allow more abundance into my life. And that resonated deeply with me.
There’s no way of knowing where my journey will take me and it can be unsettling and unnerving.
But at the same time, I find comfort in embracing the unknown and welcoming change because we are after all always evolving. So I hope that I’ll be able to continue to trust the process, honour the good and the bad and put my energy in the right places.
On another note, I’m happy to share that I’m making progress with my reading goal for 2021, which is to read as many books as I possibly can. I’m currently on my 6th book, Why We Can’t Wait by Martin Luther King, Jr. who vividly wrote about some of the most seminal moments in African-American activism in 1963. I haven’t finished it but so far it’s absolutely riveting and I was so engrossed that his sentiments and observations felt electric, for lack of a better word. So, I can’t wait to continue reading it!
With that, I would like to leave you with some words of affirmation.
You are enough. You are loved. You are deserving of abundance. Even when you are on your own, you are not alone.
Happy Friday to you and thank you for being here.
