’I forget when it all began, but at some point my mind started to unravel like a ball of endless twine. The world looked different and nothing has ever felt the same. Like a veil was lifted from my eyes and my soul began to glisten’’
The quote above really resonates with me, I have somewhat found myself and my purpose this year and I wouldn’t want to be or live any other way. As the year draws to a close, I’ve noticed a shift in my energies. I’ve spent a lot of time reflecting on the year, where I am in my life right now and how I’ve changed. I fully embrace the person I’ve become and I am so proud of the challenges I have faced and overcome. Most importantly, I have learned how to live my life being my true authentic self. I’ve realised what’s important in life - it’s like I have been blind folded all these years and I can finally see. This year was definitely one of the toughest I have ever faced. I got pretty sick… but after falling ill the universe forced me to slow down. The silver lining… that’s when my learning begun. The Universe forced me to slow down and this brought incredible experiences and opportunities into my life.
This year I have learned to make health my main priority because at the end of the day, without your health you have nothing. It’s the foundation for everything and absolutely crucial if you want to live a full life with new experiences and joy. I have been winding the year down by doing the things that set my soul on fire and in doing so I find myself always by the ocean, admiring the waves and its beauty. My remedy to most aliments in life is ocean therapy – there is nothing more healing, cleansing, calming and soul satisfying than submerging yourself into the blue salty sea. Words can't even describe the way being by the ocean makes me feel when sitting on the sand meditating, writing in my journal with a coffee or practising yoga listening to the waves.
