It’s been a while since I’ve written on the blog, I must say my V-logging has definitely taken over and with a baby it’s just been more of an interactive experience sharing my mind, body, skin tips via video.
Like anything, when you have something removed from your routine for a while you understand what you are now missing. And while video is fun, I didn’t have the opportunity to internalize, reflect, and write about my experiences. 2017 was an amazing year and full of love! And though it was all of that and more, there were moments that I did not share the not-so-amazing because I just didn’t make room for it. I have been quite dismissive on issues that were important if they did not seem positive or uplifting. I withheld compassion for myself and for others in negative situations because I just didn’t have time for it. But now, I understand what was missing and that was simply the allowance of time and space to properly heal & learn. In the coming weeks, I will share these lessons one by one.
For now, without getting into too much detail, I would love to share an excerpt from A Return To Love by Marianne Williamson. I’m sure I’ve shared here before.. a reminder. It is for myself, but also for you in case you’ve forgotten a midst the whirlwind of your busy life.
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness
That most frightens us.
We ask ourselves
Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small
Does not serve the world.
There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking
So that other people won’t feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine,
As children do.
We were born to make manifest
The glory of God that is within us.
It’s not just in some of us;
It’s in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine,
We unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we’re liberated from our own fear,
Our presence automatically liberates others.
xx love & light.
