I’ve decided to take more steps towards making my life the way I truly want it to be: healthy, centered, holistic, happy. This is definitely a challenging endeavor that will not happen overnight.
I’m doing this great protocol that I’ve procrastinated doing for over a decade, because I thought it would be too hard. It isn’t as hard as I had imagined. It just requires dedication and consistency.
I’m starting to read again. Something I’ve been wanting to do since my first was born. I’m being more mindful of my frame of mind and my reactions; even and especially when things aggravate me.
I started this new book called Visionary Shamanism. I’m not very far along but I’m already enjoying it. It’s from a local writer I met at a breathwork event. I like to support people doing something they are passionate about that is spreading healing and kindness into the world.
It seems right on target for where I am right now too. She talks about our addictions, be it to people, things, experiences, whatever… and how they stop us from being our full potential. They are the shackles our ego gives us to bind us to a narrow frame of mind. They keep us in a narrative of pain, that we self-inflict over and over.
I was thinking of how much this is true for my own life and how I want to look at that more closely. I’m ready to uncover the roots of it and heal it once and for all. I m hoping that is possible and I am anxious to see what I can learn from her story.
It gives me joy to see myself going forward; pursuing my goals. I know I will have setbacks, but no great achievement comes without them. They are the stumbling and learning blocks that can help propel us, if we let them. We all have our own unique weaknesses but if we learn to conquer them or use them to our own advantage we can accomplish almost anything. Or at least enough to live a very satisfying life and that seems more than good enough to me.
