I think each one of us has a journey that we are not always aware of because we are constantly searching. Searching for purpose, searching for answers, searching for the meaning of our journey. We’re never just letting things happen organically. It seems that it typically takes a major life crisis for us to realize our journey.
A lot of people see me as this health and wellness guru, a warrior figure. I love that and I strive for that because I’m just a normal girl who has gone through some major changes in the last (almost) 55 years and along that path I realized that health and wellness is my journey. I spent ample amounts of time searching for this journey though to finally find it.
My life has been far from perfect, but as we know perfection is the flaw. I’ve had many ups and downs, twists and turns and roadblocks along the way.
Many of my bad moments were self created by me, based on my perception of what I thought was reality and some of it was not in my control. One thing I have learned is that when things are not in your control DO NOT try to control them because it makes them worse. I learned that later in life. It’s hard to release the things out of our control, but it’s necessary for our own success, well-being and all around sanity.
Letting go of the things we cannot control can make us feel fragile. It is hard for us to come to terms with our fragility. We are fragile. But we are not fragile without the ability to be strong as well.
We must find that balance between strong and vulnerable to move along our journey.
I’ve been hurt many times in my life. And I don’t like the feeling. And I’m also a Libra which makes it worse since Libras are known to be idealistic and sensitive.
We all have our path, our journey, our specific struggles.
This is all something I wanted to share because when I think about things that resonate with me I feel a craving to share them because I believe there is probably someone out there who could benefit from my sharing, possibly even more than one, but no one would benefit if I kept it to myself.
In our crazy lives we have to never stop believing. We have to never stop knowing that it’s all going to be OK and we don’t have to be in control every minute of every day. This uncertainty keeps us on our toes.
Change is something that I believe greatly promotes growth and helps us to gain understanding of ourselves and our surroundings.
We are here for a reason. I think I have finally found my purpose through health and wellness efforts and turning them into my career and livelihood. I’m not perfect in my own health and wellness and I will never say that I am. I don’t think I even want to be perfect, but I keep striving to know more, learn more, branch out more and be more.
At the end of the day I just want to make a difference in someone’s life. But I believe no matter what field we are in we all want that. We all want to be part of something bigger than ourselves, we want to impact the world.
Stay true to yourself and work hard towards the things that are important to you and I promise you, you’ll make a difference.
