It happened again. Like many times before, I’ve been wondering what to write about this week but I always trust that the universe will show me and I’ll know what it is when it happens. And it did. Again.
One of my favourite ways to pass the time when I’m having a day off is to scroll through inspirational posts and feed my soul. I know it’s my responsibility to keep myself happy and healthy and this little activity is good for me because it reminds me of all of the wonder and joy in life, especially at times like the past week, when our news feeds, papers and broadcasts have been so full of the fear and negativity in the world. It’s nice to see some positivity at times like this.
Now I know that what I’ve seen happening in the world is scary, there’s no question about that, but what I am also seeing is a banding together of humans that just won’t stand for it. A message of love and acceptance is shining through as humanity refuses to let the hate win over the love.
There has been a flood of kind, wise and open hearted humans choosing to educate and spread the message of unity rather than letting the fear mongers succeed in the separation of us as beings. We are all connected after all.
Another reason that I love doing the ‘happiness scroll’ is because I often come across sayings and words that I have never seen or heard of before and words are what we all use to communicate. We use them to say how we feel and we use them to fulfil our every need and desire in life.
So what did I come across this morning? This little beauty:
It is an ancient greek word that basically translates to an acceptance and understanding of one’s sense of self not being the best possible version and making the choice to become that. It is the seeking of growth in spirit and self and profound transformation. What a beautiful word.
It resonates so much with me because like many people, my journey has been one of vast change, particularly in the last five years. It resonates with me because I believe more than anything in this world, that we are all here to help one another get through life and that to change the world, we must first change ourselves.
So much in my life has changed for the better but it had to start from me. As Anais Nin said “We don’t see things as they are; we see things as we are”. Aint that the truth!
I see so many people afraid of change but in reality, the only guarantee in this life is change. It must be embraced. A major source of stress in life is the fight against change. Relationships fail because of it. People get sick because of it. Things fall apart when it is ignored and adjustments are not made to flow with it.
I have learned that embracing, instigating and choosing change is the best thing that I ever did. I not only accept it, I love it with every inch of my being and don’t ever want it to stop. I believe that my change can help others bring it about in themselves in a positive and soul nourishing way, so I’m not afraid of bearing my soul to do that. Being ourselves and not proclaiming to be anything else but who we truly are is the best thing we can do, not only for ourselves but for others.
The truth will set you free. It may be a cliché but it’s the truth.
See what I did there?
Love & Light Always,
