“Every human has an unfathomable gift that only meeting life head on will reveal.”
So I just got an email from my girl Oprah about Quotes that will get you through a hard time. I can’t say that I am going through a hard time but I am DEFINITELY in transition. Actually, no, that isn’t right. I’m going through an evolution. What’s the difference? Well, a transition is the process or a period of changing from one state or condition to another. Evolution is the gradual development of something, especially from a simple to a more complex form.
Last year during this time I was in transition. I was moving (from the city to the burbs) and grieving (the dissolution of my family). Essentially I went from being sad to being happy. BUT now I’m in a period of evolution. Going from living to being alive. From being happy, to being joyful. A lot of this is coming from dealing with old hurts and childhood issues that I was just incapable of dealing with before. Understanding how those little experiences have been the catalyst for my successes, disappointments, failures and triumphs. My mother always said, “Life is like a mirror, what you project you will reflect.” Last year, I realized that my life and the people in it was a reflection of what I was projecting. This year I’m learning how to project the things I want and desire back into the universe and attract my hearts desires.
I recently started a self imposed 30 day challenge to start my day listening toaffirmations through meditation and this one affirmation in particular I repeat every morning. It is probably one of the most profound things I’ve heard. It’s so simple, yet so poignant and clarifying:
“I take complete responsibility for everything in my life..and therefore I am in a position to lead the life that I want to lead.”
This one phrase has given me more power than anything else that has ever happened in my life. It gave me control. Over my money, how I parent, my relationships, my friendships, etc. When I saw these two quotes in Queen Oprahs slide deck, I knew it was the universe confirming that I was headed in the right direction. Have you ever heard the saying, what you resist will persist.
Well its true. But, I’m no longer resisting. Instead I’m running head first into the things that have pained me, hurt me, betrayed me, confused me and confounded me. I’m not running to embrace them, I’m running to heal them. And say good bye. Because I can. Because I have that power.
