When I started this blog over two years ago, I was on a spiritual quest for truth. I also felt that my findings and thoughts might resonate with other people, and longed for a community to share ideas with, learn from, and have mutual support for the journey. I certainly found that and more here. You have been a wonderful comfort when I felt alone in my faith and with life in general. Your comments helped me become stronger when I felt defeated. They also challenged me to dig deeper into my emotions, and discover their origins, because knowledge of self is incredibly important - it allows us to discover truth at it’s source.
My truth is beautiful.
I’m standing in a very different place now. The journey is not complete; it has simply changed course. The urgency I felt about finding my own faith is gone. I’ve made peace with it. I believe what I believe, and the details just aren’t as important anymore. This new direction has challenged the way I view myself and the role I have in this life. Past struggles, as frustrating and painful as they were (some still are), are actually blessings in disguise. They have altered my spiritual landscape, and shifted the illusion of control from my head to my heart.
It’s a wonderful place to be.
I don’t know what the future holds, but the present moment is soothing and still. The waters have finally calmed after the storm, and I stand on the shore with a smile. Life looks very different now, but it’s a good sort of different – the kind that begs to be explored, and I am now brave enough to try.
Welcome to my present. I am stepping out of my comfort zone and trying new things. I am learning my own strength, and trusting that I can be alone without needing to fear it. I’m embracing my creativity, leaning on my intuition, and trying to navigate with self-confidence. I am not defined by where I’ve been, but who I have become, and where I intend to go.
This is the new and improved me!
