If there were one theme for how I divinely merge my joyful overflow with my passion and personality, that theme would be – COURAGE TO STOP TOLERATING THE LIFE I HAVE AND START CREATING THE LIFE I WANT.
If I had accepted my fate as a child who had developed a speech impediment at 8 years of age precipitating a fear of speaking, lack of self worth and no self confidence, I would be living at home on disability with my mother and no gainful employment. If I had accepted my string of emotionally traumatic and dysfunctional relationships with men, I would have been sentenced to a life devoid of real love and connection. If I had stayed in the corporate world, as a woman on a journey of self-discovery and awakening to her authentic self, I would have been a prisoner to a patriarchal paradigm I no longer related to.
The moment I made the decision not to tolerate the way things were and to create and manifest my own destiny, was the first day of the rest of my life.
These are only three examples, but the reality is that by now, I have been reborn a thousand times. No matter how faint the call or how tiny the voice of my inner wisdom, I latched onto it and it became my compass. Even though I didn’t have the answer, knew the path, or understood the way through, what I did know was that if I didn’t honor the call, the burning light inside of me which I recognized to be my authentic self, my spirit, my being – would die out. Honoring the call became the goal, being open to what came up for me as a result became the beacon to follow, and having faith in my own abilities and trust in the Universe’s plan for me, became how I was going to do it.
There is no joy in finding myself in a place, time and again, in which I am tolerating and not living. Only when I am present enough to heed the call do I feel joy in the infinite possibilities of a new beginning, which brings me one step closer to my true self, the place from which I live. The journey continues.
To help you find an access point to feel more joy, take out your journal, find a quiet place in your mind, and answer these questions from your heart:
- How do you want your life to be?
- What are the attitudes and beliefs that are holding you back, and what are the ones that will propel you forward?
- Are you more committed to remaining where you are or to getting where you want to be?
- What action will you commit to today, that will move you closer to where you want to be?
There is no joy in finding myself in a place where I am tolerating, and not living.
