Hello beautiful people,
How time flies!
What an amazing couple of weeks it has been. It seems with each new day my life gets fuller and fuller. How blessed I am. I really am in awe of the journey and the gifts I have received over the course of my life thus far. I’m sure if I hadn’t had this experience with my husband I’d still be plodding along, unawares of the wonders that surround me and come from deep within me too, oblivious to the beauty that exists in each new moment.
Actually, you know what? I’d have to go as far as saying that over the past thirty-eight years (of my young life!) this is the best I have ever felt, on all levels, physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. I feel so strong and centred within myself. I guess when you ‘practice what you passion’® each and every day, life simply falls into place. Flow takes form and synchronicity is at play.
Sure challenges come up, though now I know I have the right tools, attitude and belief in myself to handle them. Releasing the past has had a lot to do with it too. These days when I am presented with a challenge, that is what I am working with, that challenge. There is no baggage from the past to complicate the present. Makes for a much easier life I might add!
Wherever you are on your own journey, I trust it is exactly where you are meant to be. If you aren’t yet able to see your experiences for the gifts that they truly are, please hang in there and know they are just around the corner waiting for you to stop by and pick them up. That is of course when you are ready to do so.
It takes time to heal the past. For some, not nearly as much time as others, but hey, who’s counting! Allow yourself to be in that space of healing, without any guilt for feeling the way you do. A loss is still a loss. For me it was years and years before I could fully forgive my husband for cheating on me with men. Let alone the fact that I believed he had rewritten my story without my permission. It was okay for me to grieve for my life as I had previously known it to be. Being able to do that from a place of love, that’s where the real healing began. Love of yourself, love of your partner and love for the experiences and the journey you are on. They don’t say love makes the world go round for nothing you know!
I think what really does our heads in, when initially confronted with disclosure and moving forward into a new world, is that it is so removed from that which we have been conditioned for generations now, to believe is the only right and moral way of being. One man, one woman, monogamously, happily ever after! Our brains don’t seem to compute anything else. Simple I say, ‘take that disc out and put a new one in!’ Oh, and delete any traces of ‘what other people will think of me.’ This is not about other people. This is about the two of you and your children (if you have any). This is not for others to decide or tell you what you ‘should’ do. This is for the two of you to negotiate. By the way did you know that what other people think of you is actually none of your business! I love that one. What is important is what you think about you, or better yet what you feel and know is true about you.
This wasn’t what I thought I was going to be writing about today. My fingers seemed to have a mind of their own. I’ll trust that this post is exactly as it is meant to be!
Be kind and gentle on yourself and to those around you. Love, even if you can only manage a little bit right now and watch how easily it can grow, unconditionally.
Love & hugs,
‘practice what you passion’®
