This time last year, I was all about high heels, 5 inches and higher only- never caught in flats, now I rock bare feet on the daily– lol. I would never go out without a full face of perfect makeup, I’ve toned that down and am more carefree now for sure. My body feels effortlessly healthy whereas last year I was always ‘chasing‘ fitness.. I’d rather catch up over green juice than drinks. But these are all outer, material things.
It’s amazing how one year can change so many things, but I am speaking in regards to perspective specifically.
What really matters, the shift in perspective and experiencing events from the seat of awareness.. is what inspired me to write this post. It was truly eye opening the other day when I saw a reflection of how I used to be - it was someone I interacted with the entire morning of my birthday on April 2nd (thank you for all the birthday wishes!!!!). It was someone I knew on a working level. The fact that I was able to see a direct reflection as it was happening was AMAZING. In short, she was easily offended, quick to blame, and not showing her best effort. I could see the frustration was coming from the fact that she knew she could do better, but wasn’t for whatever reasons or excuses she made up for herself. Although this attitude and harsh accusations quickly led to the end of our working relationship, all I could really allow myself to feel was compassion. When you are not doing what you LOVE, when you do not follow your bliss, when you are not grateful for what you are doing, then you are working against the world. It feels like it is you against the entire world. The people who are placed in your life are there for a reason, be grateful. They may be your mirror so you can see how you truly are, they may be supporters who help you get to where you need to be, and they may be lessons..
I am grateful everyday for the unexpected lessons and reflections that come my way in the most least expected times and places. Listen and watch for signs, life is such a blessing. Throw away your excuses and live the life you are destined to. When it’s cloudy, shift your perspective and watch the sun peak out- it’s there.. you’ve just got to look higher.
xx love & light.
