So much has been happening in my life the last few months. So many changes, so many doors opening, so much to be thankful for. All of my life, it seems that I have been sitting and waiting for that big moment where all of the earth’s answers are revealed to me and I would suddenly “get it”. Well let me tell you this—when you are searching for something, you are sure to never find it. But when you aren’t looking, sometimes, POOF. The answer is there right in front of you.
A friend of mine recently gave me a golden nugget that has been in my mindframe since he uttered the words. He told me that I had been planting good seeds in bad soil. The decisions that I was making and the relationships I was cultivating was causing me some displeasure and hardship. I was trying to cultivate a relationship with someone that wasn’t fruitful—I was planting and sowing and trying to grow something when in actuality, nothing would ever grow because it was bad soil. I backed away and never looked back.
Since that time, I’ve been getting myself in order spiritually. I don’t discuss religion on this blog because it has not served as a platform for that, but I have gotten back into my faith and into my church home and I’ve noticed since doing so, revelations have begun to appear in my life. It took me 36 years, but I finally get it. I finally understand myself, my purpose, and the direction in which I am headed. I understand that what I put into people should be reciprocated. And if not, then I need to realize it and move on.
I also learned that there is power in forgiveness, and before moving on, I need to truly forgive.
I am in a great zone and feel like there is no limit to what I can do and what I can achieve. I am just scratching the surface of my potential and my talents. To not fully tap into them would be a waste.
I am getting my mind right, my body right, and my soul right. Along with my personal rebirth comes new outlook. I need to treat my body better if I want to be around for a long time. I can be both fabulous as well as fit and a good role model to my children. So working out three times a week and maintaining healthy eating habits is also a top priority of mine.
It’s getting real, folks. I can’t wait to see what the rest of my life has in store for me!
