This is my first blog posting of the year! lol Time is flying by, so if the old cliche is true, then I must be having fun. :0) I'm actually having the time of my life.
I will paraphrase a quote that really resonates with me right now ~ I may not have gone where I thought I would, but now I know that I have ended up exactly where I was meant to be.
There are moments in my past, as I am sure you can relate, that I felt were a waste of time or just not necessarily, whether it was a painful experience (such as the ending of a relationship), or perhaps exhausting (looong hours of photography work), or just something that seems like a waste of money (like getting a personal loan to try my hand at doing reiki/reflexology/readings for a career, which got me about 2 customers a month lol or getting an Arts Degree in university that I felt was a waste of time/money for many years). Now, I can accept and trust that all of these steps were necessary to get me where I am today. My earlier education experience is going to now benefit me in both experience and pay raises. My photography career will help me to improve literacy and creativity in my future classrooms. And my past business ventures have taught me to look at all of the options and possiblities before proceeding.
Most of all, I am so so grateful that I listened to my heart and went back to university. I can't even regret having waited so long because the people I have met in the past year have been such wonderful additions in my life. Everything has been a blessing in disguise that has now revealed itself. It is so amazing to be around like-minded people. I also know now that my years of experience have helped me to gain the confidence I need to proceed now. And best of all, I have such a blissful feeling in my heart that I truly am exactly where I need to be at this moment in my life.
These feelings I am experiencing I have beleived in long before I experienced them. They are the reason why I try to promote positive thinking and taking chances, following your passions and inspirations, and creating the changes you need in your life to feel fulfilled and enjoy life to the fullest. These are the reasons why I truly love creating this page and spending time and energy on my inspire love facebook page.
It is also so heart warming to receive feedback from people that I cross paths with through my work with Inspire Love. Sometimes I prefer spending time on that fb page rather than my personal one! lol
Today I am sharing meditations from a Louise Hay book that I found. Her wisdom is so inspiring and uplifting and honest that it really touches my heart.
Here is one that I posted this morning....
Wonderful Experiences Now Enter My Life. I am Safe. I Pay Attention to the Good
I know that good resides in every moment and in every place, and that even the worst situation, a bit of goodness can be found. The loss of a job... or a loved one or my health brings me face to face with my biggest fears. It is
normal and natural that I experience these fears. Yet I know that nature abhors a vacuum. When one thing goes, then something else will come to take its place.
So I take a deep breath- or six- and trust that life always takes care of my needs. I am learning to trust. Life loves me and will never let me down. Only that which is for my highest good now occurs."
