Okay… There it goes…
For months I have been preparing. I wanted to write a blog about my experiences. Because… o boy… I do have a story to tell…
My first idea was to just go back a long way and write down my life story. I was born in May 1962 so I thought…. Hmmm… maybe not. Too far back… I don’t want to bore my readers to death. Although… not much chance for that. I have been living quite an exciting life so far…
But the past 3 years were really transformational. And even then, I don’t really know where to begin. I have recorded a video with my story. I takes about 12 minutes and it is on YouTube. (Right now I am thinking… seriously???). But yes… I have been told that the magic happens outside of your comfort zone. I am in full confidence that things are developing in the right direction.
So, what am I going to talk about today? Perhaps just start from where I am now. I read that tip somewhere in the past days… I don’t remember where.
That is one of these things… I am like a sponge that absorbs everything these days. I have not been watching tv for like 3 years now… Sure, on occasion I will watch a movie on Netflix, but most of the time that are documentaries.
I am totally into personal development. I listen to podcasts, watch video’s, take courses, read books, talk to like-minded people. I meditate, I visualize, I manifest, I journal… And I am loving it so much.
I can truly say that I am in the process of changing my life. It is an amazing journey. I love every minute of it, although it is not always easy. It gets lonely at times but that is okay. Because I need a lot of time to turn inside. Because you create your perfect and happy life from within.
My whole life I have been looking at people who lived in abundance, who were rich, and never seemed to have trouble paying the bills and lived a beautiful life, with designer cloths, vacations, travel, great houses, great cars… And I always imagined that I was one of them.
Unfortunately, I was not. Not that I have reasons to complain a lot. I also wear designer cloths, I have traveled the world, I live in a beautiful house, there is food on the table, I have friends and family who love me, I have a beautiful son… I worked hard for that. But there was always something missing. I now know that it had to do with my mindset. Because I was born poor, I always believed that I was never going to be rich. I had a scarcity mindset instead of an abundance mindset.
Will you join me?
So, I am going to write about the steps I am taking day by day to create my new fantastic life and as we go along, I will share my history and tell my readers about the events in my life that brought me here. Will you join me?
And get this: we all have a story to tell. And we also all need other people in our lives to help us when we get stuck, for whatever reason.
Broken relationships and broken hearts, health issues, addiction, etc. I have experienced it all. And guess what? I overcame it and I am still happy. Because that is the true secret in life… happiness is a choice and there is always, always something to smile about.
Let’s be gentle, loving, and kind… always. To ourselves, to each other and to the planet. But especially to ourselves. Without self-love, nothing else is possible. Remember that, lovely lady.
