Life truly is all about learning about yourself. Since I started blogging, I’ve learned a shit ton about myself. You know, writing has got to be one the most therapeutic things in the world, right up there with prayer and music. It helps to get it all out of your mind and down on paper, or social media of course. The art of learning about ourselves can be a little bit scary at times, but you don’t grow when your safe and comfortable feeling.
I’ve most certainly found out things about myself that I didn’t like since I’ve started living out my dreams. We are complex creatures who have lived complicated yet amazing lives. We are all the same on the inside, even if we’re different on the outside.
I never really knew that I would become a writer, a blogger, a story teller. I still don’t understand where this path leads, but I’m ok with that. I don’t need to understand everything all at once. I’ve learned how to trust in my journey. I’ve learned to listen to my soul and to nourish it and to love it. I’ve learned that I will always be learning. Because that’s part of my story. That’s part of who I am, and what my inner purpose is.
I’m a student, and a teacher. I’m a messenger not necessarily the message. I’ve been blessed with a positive voice, and the courage to use it. I believe that we all have gifts that we need to make sure that we are using. They are what make us different, and unique.
They are inside you, do you want to find them?
Do you want to us them?
Some days I sit down to write and it’s the easiest thing in the world, and other days I can’t even form a thought. Do you know why this is? Because I just like you have good days and bad days. Even though I’m trying to work on myself, I’m still doing all of these other things too. Like being a wife, mother, hairstylist, friend, blogger, network marketer, taxi service, and so much more.
Some days my house is peaceful and full of love and grace, which makes my heart full. But other days, it’s like a hurricane up in here. Being a parent is hard and so is marriage if you want a happy one. Life’s not always going to be easy, but it’s not always going to be hard either. This is once again the yin and yang of life. The balance that’s provided to us on a daily basis. The ability to pick and choose what we want to invest in, and then go for it.
If you want to change anything in your life, then you need to understand that it all begins and ends with you. Get to know yourself better, do the work and become the person you were meant to be. The one that is locked away inside you, begging for you to listen to her again. The one that has the strength and the courage to always look for a better solution, a different way of seeing things. The one who has the ability to do great things, but only if your brave enough to look inside your own heart.
