Become the CEO of your LIFE
Let's have a virtual cuppa
There comes a time in many people’s lives when the life we are living no longer makes any sense; we feel stuck and fearful of facing our demons. Unknown and unseen monsters tear away at us. We unwittingly mis-shape our lives, putting on a face for our public and all the while we live in constant terror that one day someone will unearth our secrets and show us for the frauds we are.
You are not a fraud - you are coming to terms with your inner beauty and wisdom.
When that time comes, we search blindly, looking for answers about who we are in the strangest places when in reality the search needs to move inwards, because this where all the answers reside.
In taking the brave step to examine who we are and the things we have done or had done to us, we run the risk of crashing.
When our life careers over the precipice, and we hit the bottom of the canyon, there is only one way out, and that is to take control. And to change how we feel about where we are and who we are. The wheels of our lives can only be stuck for so long.
I’ve worked hard at peeling back my layers and working on my ‘stuff’. Every time I have been shaken awake, I have been forced to confront things to become more aware. And even then, I sometimes didn’t, until out of left field an aha has come to me. It takes a lot of awakenings to bring us all to our knees before we are able to look ourselves in the eyes with raw and brutal honesty.
Love | Peace | Adventure
My biggest awakening came in the form of physical pain, my spine fractured, and my life fell apart. Or at least it felt did when it happened. I screamed from the pain; I could hardly breathe and walking was almost impossible in the beginning. In my darkest hour, I found a new journal, and I wrote. I discovered that my life was out of balance. The dis-ease I was labelled with having was a silent dis-ease – so how could I have known it was happening? It was something that strangely I am grateful for because I have been able to heal my mind, body and soul as the whole me.
I have discovered that my superpower is resilience (you will have a superpower too) and when you love yourself enough, you will do anything to bring harmony back to the whole you.
My gift to myself, apart from believing I could heal this dis-ease naturally was my journal and writing.
Give yourself the gift of writing yourself a new adventure, where you are the heroine and can control your outcomes. Through writing, reflection, and creativity, it can all be pulled into perspective. You, of course, have to take action. When you do, you will be rewarded.
My three dogs who have chosen to share this adventure with me bring so many lessons and loads of love. We live to together in the hills eating cake.
Pretty cool for someone who was expelled from school…
