Over the past year I have experienced a major shift in my life. I feel as if to start off this blog as a public space I should give a bit of a back story.
At the beginning of 2017 I found myself in a place where I had accomplished all that I had longed for for many years. After settling into these new and exciting changes, I quickly realized how unhappy I actually was. One morning after church I suddenly broke down in tears, confessing my brokenness to my best friend and pastor.
A few days later I met with my pastor who gave me words of wisdom that changed everything. Together we uncovered that I was very in touch with my physical needs (likely due to many years as a fitness junkie) but not so in touch with myself emotionally or spiritually. She encouraged me to get grounded in the present. To be still and enjoy all that I had longed for. She cautioned me that planning too far and unnecessarily in advance would cause me to miss over the greatness of each moment.
I took her advice and began to pray each day that I be used as a vessel of God’s infinite love. Daily I thanked God for the privilege of being able to care for His children. These were the words that began to change everything.
Over the months to follow I learned a LOT about myself, from the inside-out. I know for a fact that during this time I truly began to find myself (which I am still doing and believe I may always be). I will speak further on these lessons as this blog unfolds.
Again, over the last eight weeks I have experienced yet another major shift that has lead me to this moment right here. The thought of starting a blog has been on my mind for quite some time now. Since being here in Thailand I have gotten quite clear on my vision of this blog felt it heavy on my heart to just got for it – so here we are!
Admittedly opening up and allowing myself to be vulnerable is a bit scary for me, but nothing great ever happens in comfort zones. Deep down I do know that I have positivity to offer the world so why not. Furthermore, I feel strongly the Universe is guiding me to do just this.
Thanks for reading and I hope you continue to follow me on my journey 🙂
Words of encouragement: You are already enough. Everything you need is already within you.
All my love, A.
