I find that as December comes to an end, I always end up looking both back and forward. Reviewing the year, I'm feeling so blessed at how far I've come.
I completed my first full year back at university, I was able to move out of an apartment where I lived for 5 years, was placed exactly where I needed to be for my internship, completed that internship, and am now ready to head back to the city to finish my degree. Every one of my siblings left their jobs to move and seek new employment and new homes. We've never rented so many U-hauls in one year! :) All of the moves have been a blessing, I feel.
I have also experienced healing of my heart. I've been able to overcome past hurts that led to insecurities and trust issues. I'm so eternally gratefully to have met a man that taught me that it's safe to open up my heart fully to love again and to break down the walls that prevent me from experiecing love. He is a true treasure & by far my happiest moment of the year was my 30th birthday (something I had actually dreaded for a couple of years)! I'll never forget his surprise visit as he walked through the doors with flowers, a smile, and my heart.
So many events leading up until now feel like little pieces of the puzzle that truly had to fit together to bring us all to where we are today.
It's so much clearer to me now that painful experiences in the past were truly blessings in disguise. I'm much more able to see the lessons in past relationships and experiences. Events that I thought were detours from my path were truly just stepping stones~ necessary ones at that! How can I dislike anything that created the person that I am in this moment? I can definately look back with a smile now.
And hey- the world did not end!! In fact, it feels like it is newly beginning for those who are gaining a more enlightened perspective and awakening into their True Selves.
2013 will definately bring more changes still. As I am reading a post on my FB page about how people would describe the year, it's not lost on me that changes have been very difficult on some people & that there are many struggling with the shifts that are happening. I KNOW that 2013 will bring blessings to all, I just pray that everyone will embrace the ability to recognize them & give thanks. The world needs an attitude shift and it really happens one person at a time.
For me personally, I'll be going back to University and completing my degree in April. Since I don't know what the future holds for me from that point on I'm holding onto faith and trust once again that I'll go exactly where I'm meant to be; including the best location where I can meet the people I need to meet for my highest good and have the experiences that are going to help me to continue to grow into the best version of me.
I Am blessed.
I Am emerging still and I Am ready for what life has to offer me.
I believe the best IS yet to come and that is soooo incredibly exciting~ my heart is filled with joy and I radiate that love to you and hope to inspire a little love in your day.
