Last night I prepared myself a hot bath complete with lavender oil, burning incense and candles.
It’s become a bit of a ritual for me and I relish these moments of self-care in which I honor and nurture my body and soul.
As I mentioned in my last post, I am writing a book about discovering the beauty of our imperfect journeys as a pathway to healing and transformation.
I am loving this work because it speaks to the deepest part of me which needs to hear that message constantly.
Other messages I need to hear are those about self acceptance, self realization and moving through fear to live our most authentic lives. So I am writing about that too because I feel the following to be true:
“The message we must carry is the one we most need to hear.”
Tonight, however I felt compelled to show up on camera. Without a script, or makeup or a clue. To speak from the heart. It was a scary thing to do, but I believe that our fears are the markers on our path to liberation.
And basically, life is too freaking short not to carry the message we were born to share.
This is my first attempt at truly showing up for my mission. To tell the universe that I hear what it is trying to teach me and yes, I will give it my all. Yes, universe, I realise my camera skills could do with some work, but there will be time for that.
For now, though, I’m showing up with what I have.
Thank you for helping me to overcome myself day by day. It is my hope that in doing so, I might encourage you on your own journey.
