I got a prophetic word that said God wanted me to dive deep into the river.
— When you hear something poetic like that you think you know what it means.. but you’re not too sure... •Well, when I saw this river after leaving ZION I didn’t know until later that it was connected to the same river running through - Zion! •What’s even crazier was that I was driving to the Grand Canyon from Arizona & just so happened to stop here and viola! I found this beauty!✨ 〰️Sometimes in life we end up on routes we didn’t intend to, and we think we wasted time, we regret things we did and sometimes we feel lost & confused-and out of purpose. •But it’s always when you least expect it- when your guard is down and your freely moving through life that you end up at a place of peace🍂 •When you’re still & grateful enough, you see how everything you went through was all apart of the plan. And you see how it all was leading you on the right path, and that you’ve been in purpose the whole time! And at that moment you see how it all connected, and how it will continue to connect for your future. — this same river runs through the Grand Canyon. (Which was my initial destination )
I’m diving in the river God- and I am trusting the water I’m in leads me to where I’m supposed to go〰️
I dedicated this year of my life to Self Discovery..
I told myself that I would:
spend more time with God
spend more time with myself
take self care seriously, and treat myself nice
listen to myself and trust my decisions
travel a lot more
do things that scare me
step into my purpose
become, embrace, and love Clarece…
I did something that allowed me to touch all of those things on that beautiful list. I traveled for 5 (number of grace) days alone, in my car to 5 major places I really wanted to experience. It was a great ride.. It was scary, exhilirating, uplifting, and beautiful. I really did it..
Im actually tearing up as I write this.. its really dawning on me that I did something radical, something courageous and beautiful. Something that was MY idea! something that I desired to do- and it was WAY more powerful and beautiful than I could ever imagine. I would do it over and over and over again..
Being alone on this trip was a purposeful decision. I wanted to truly get to know myself, know why I do things, how I do them, how I handle situations, and how I operate…
I was forced to hear only MY thoughts, I had to live with the decisions I made immediately with no one to blame, to help, to inquire about anything!
5 days- but it felt like a month..
The time moved at a perfect pace, and I was riding this graceful wave of trust, love, and appreciation.
I say all this to invite you onto the journey..
Together we weill explore hard topics about ourselves and how to process through them. How to live a life thats filled with purpose, and how to maneuver through life gracefully while staying true to who we were created to be, the desires within us to make our unique mark on the world, and finally enjoying the ride!
You can follow the journey with me in the various ways I choose to tell it which are through youtube, my blog (right here<3), instagram, and pinterest!
Live out this week by reminding yourself of the things that warm your soul, stir your spirit and uplift your emotions to the highest realm of joy peace you can think of. Then take all of that, and live it out loud!
I hope to see you again, until next time my fancy friend!
I’m currently in this place of really deep self reflection. On the outside looking in (or at least in my mind what people see) is a woman who is in a ‘transition’ coming from a place of security to a place that requires hard conversations, harsh realities, and beautiful truths that hurt so -good. I know i’m being really obscure and the truth is I want to tell all- but I can’t just yet.
And that’s okay. Because amongst the obscurity I believe there is still freedom and room for learning & enlightening. Being in a place in life where you all of a sudden have wayyyy more time for self reflection is a fabulous place to be. There is no rule that says you *must be in any type of position in life at a certain time. Be where you are now, where you’re feet are on the ground this very moment. Where your lungs are collapsing and expanding this very moment. Be here. Right now. You’re okay. It’s all okay. Take this moment in.
Relax a bit..
Being still is slowly becoming a crime and almost obsolete in the times we're living in.. you have the ability to ALWAYS be doing SOMETHING. The water of today's generation is troubled, and everyone is trailing around with a giant wake of water behind them.. And when the water is troubled, our minds begin to drown in the waves.. But when the water calms, it creates a stillness that then allows for reflection to emerge from the water.. Today, be still... reflect and renew your mind..
Wait!? January where you going! You just got here !! ⏱
That was way too fast! 30 days of my life has passed by.. This morning I sat down and confronted myself on what I honestly did to work on the personal goals I set for January. I knew all month that I purposely ignored my little pink journal with a detailed list of goals I had to work on for January. I dabbled in the ones I could remember. Was very inconsistent. But I did some cool things like create my first custom window treatment for a client ! Lol anyways, this morning I reviewed my goals and got INSPIRED. my goals were so doable, still a bit of a stretch of course but so beautiful and I categorized them with inspiring themes and desired results. But the best thing is! I made them QUARTERLY!
So this means I still have time to make the new habits! I still have two more months to achieve the goals I set for the first quarter of this year! Change takes time but we get to decide how fast or slow we want to move. January was a warm up i'm ready for the race!!
