If you have ever experienced personal growth you’ll know it’s not easy. Every experience we choose to grow with, every situation that evolves, there comes expansion. Sometimes that expansion means leaving behind people that no longer resonate with you.
While that in itself is a scary thought, you have to trust that everything is happening the way it should. As you grow as an individual and enhance your life experiences through the lessons you learn, you will notice that some people make it with you on your journey and some of them don’t.
The people that make it on this ride with you are the people that make you feel good, that you feel joy, happiness and expansion. You navigate challenges and obstacles together with ease. There is support, love and a feeling of security. Then there are people where you might feel a sense of disconnect, lack and instability.
Throughout my journey, I have encountered some beautiful experiences with...
We’ve all had moments in our life where we have fallen down, gotten knocked over and can’t really figure out how to get back up.
Sometimes it feels like we're going through an obstacle course where we keep hitting blocks and walls and we get further frustrated, let down and disappointed. Does that sound like something you’ve experienced? I know I have.
In all of the situations where I've experienced powerlessness, in that very second, I've had to remind myself that I am not powerless, that I do have control.
The one thing I can control is what I'm thinking. My thinking then controls how I am feeling and my feelings lead me to a path of action and reaction.
Last week my sweet little boy started kindergarten. It was a day full of emotions. Some of those emotions had me crying in the parking lot. I drove away sobbing, knowing I was leaving him in a big, brand new place. Not only was I crying because of that but mostly because I was...
This past week I learned a huge lesson from the universe based on an interaction I had with my ex-husband and his girlfriend. One that has been a long time in the making. Apparently I've been taking my time on learning this one thing.
There are always going to be people that will try and bring you down. They will get enjoyment from your failures and they will sit back and laugh as you suffer or what they think is suffering. They will laugh at your pain. They will judge and criticize you and of course in their eyes they are perfect.
Those types of people always look at the negative in your situation, always look at the bad and thrive off of getting validation from others about their views and opinions. They can easily justify why they say the things they say and do everything they can to bring you down to their level. The mistakes you make, the hurts you feel are only fuel for them. It’s like loading them up with more ammo to keep shooting your...
This past week I embraced the beginning of a new chapter in my life. I signed my divorce papers ending an 8 year marriage. It was a bittersweet moment that left me feeling a wide range of emotions. As I looked back on my 8 year marriage I began to question everything I did. Although I did that in the past and made peace with my decisions, I found that in the aftermath of signing the paperwork, the same emotions crept back in.
After sifting through my memory of countless arguments and fights, I wondered what I could have done differently to handle the situation. How could I have avoided fights that led to the moments leading up to my divorce?
As I kept thinking about the bad moments I kept feeling negative emotions. Then I stopped myself.
I looked at where I was right now in my life and the vision I made for my new life and a strong sense of comfort and peace came over me. I was right where I needed to be.
The last 6 months of my life has been an intense...
