I think back to all the years behind me as I get ready to make the next move forward in my life. Throughout those years I have tried to be the best version of me that I could be, even though I have had to fight numerous bouts of depression and deal with an ego that produces fearful thoughts every time I tried to step outside of my comfort zone. Maybe it’s just the right time or maybe it’s because I’m getting older and the things that used to stress me, just don’t anymore but over the last few weeks I have been releasing the stuff from the past that keeps coming back to haunt me…mostly relationships that should never have gotten off the ground or relationships that should have been given a chance when I had the opportunity and just general missed opportunities in my career, etc. In the past I would have played these situations over and over again in my head, wondering how I could change the past, but as you all know, my learned friends, the past is in the past and cannot be changed, no matter how much you want it to. We have to be content with forgiving and moving on, hopefully to bigger and better things.

The weight that is lifting off my shoulders is a release that I thought might not ever come. This time last year I had surrendered to the fact that my life was shit and that was that! But as with all cycles in life, I am now sure that I can create the life of my dreams and that the next time I hit a low I will be better prepared to push through it and climb that hill back to happiness and contentment.

On the outside my life doesn’t look like it has changed that much in the last few weeks, but on the inside a flower that was closed is now blossoming and filling me with a feeling of anticipation and joy. I am experiencing a deep sense of peace that I have not felt in a long time and all I had to do was let go of the past. I mean really let go. You can say you have but until you really do, it will hold you back in all areas of your life. I call to all those experiencing the same to be brave and take that next step, to remove yourself from the shackles that have bound you to your past. Be free, be at peace, be true to yourself now. Now is all we ever really have. Enjoy it because all too soon it is in the past…



reveal your truth.

3 Jan

As the new year settles in I have decided to strip away the excess in my life and go back to the simple things that make me happy. One of the things that I had let slip last year was my meditation practice. I am always amazed at how more balanced I feel when I meditate regularly and this morning as I meditated I received the message, “Reveal your truth”. These words have stayed with me all day. Reveal your truth… Several times in the last few weeks I have received messages like this… be my true self, unmask your real self, find yourself and you will find your happiness.

The thing that perplexes me is that I’m not sure I know what my truth is. I have spent so much time wearing the masks that society expects me to wear that I’m now finding it hard to remember just what my truth is. How do I rediscover my real self and get back to the person I was born to be?

I have spent so long pretending to be someone else, someone that society thinks I should be and in that process I’ve lost my heart. The thing that holds my quintessential self. Ultimately we are all love but how we use that love is what makes us unique. So, to find my quintessential self, my truth, I need to get back to love and then, and only then, will my truth be revealed.

Until Next Time…Think Big & Blossom!
