If I Only Knew Then What I Know Now #couragetowrite
If I only knew then what I know now is one of the main reasons I started this blog a little over two years ago. I felt that I was at the precipice of discovering myself and wanted to share my journey along the way. Little did I know that my journey would take me down a windy path of self discovery. 😉
That’s the thing about life. No matter how much we would love it to be smooth sailing, we have to realize that sometimes getting lost along the way can also open us up to new possibilities we never considered. That’s why one of my favorite Oprahisms from the Life You Want tour was – When you can surrender your dream for a bigger dream, that’s when you begin to live your life’s purpose and begin to live the life you want.
Even up to a few months ago I thought I was destined to fulfill something many girls dream of – marrying someone I thought was my best friend. Life however had a bigger dream for me and after I got over the heavy fog of the break-up, I can clearly see that my path toward finding my true self was meant to prep me for something bigger. I still haven’t figured out exactly what that is, but I know that if I continue on my path of awakening and staying in touch with my true self, my life’s purpose will soon come into focus.
The beauty of all this is that blogging has given me the courage to not only write about happiness, love, life, laughter, and all the joys life has to offer, but about my fears and insecurities along the way. Not because I have a need to air my dirty laundry, but because I hope that in sharing some of my trials and tribulations, I can help someone along their journey.
See we are more alike than we are different and the more we’re willing to share and learn from each other, the more we’ll grow. Some of us find ways to share in person, some through writing, the possibilities are endless. Regardless of the method, the possibility of learning something makes this life long learner really happy and always moves me one step closer to living my best life. Currently that means living a life filled with happiness; finding joy in the ordinary vs. waiting for the extraordinary; and loving myself through all the windy trails life has waiting for me. 😉
