Who Am I on the other side of fear?

Many people were a guiding force in my life and all for different reasons. My father taught me to appreciate all of the beauty and magic that this life has to offer. My mom  built my strength and resilience and helps me to remember that I am stronger than I can imagine. My husband teaches me to have a sense of humor and laugh no matter how serious things feel and my kids have shown me that my heart can hold infinite amounts of  love and that kids are the best teachers in the world. I have had the pleasure of crossing paths with muses and friends that have believed in me and saw the best parts of me when I could not see them in myself.

In my personal experience, there have been many moments that felt like I was not where I needed to be. I have felt so derailed and off track by life that I wondered if I could ever find my way back. I used to feel isolated and alone. I wondered why everyone else in the world knew where they were headed but me. I realized later in life, that many, many people feel off course and not aligned with their calling.

Just like me. 

I have had many careers in this lifetime, many failures before successes, and many tears before laughter. We don’t need to go back in time to “fix” our mistakes in order to head down a different path. We can live in the exact moment that life has brought us to and move in a new direction from this exact spot. 

No matter where you are in life, when you look up and realize that something is not working out the way you had hoped or planned, try to simply REBOOT.

Turn off and wait. Take a few deep breaths. Set clear intentions about what you want next and then turn back on again ready for the upgrades. REBOOT your life. That is the life we are in right now. We are turned off as a global village so that we can be clear about how we want to reemerge in the New Earth that will come from this. Use this as a time for introspection and intention setting. And then when the time is right, we will all turn back on and up-level our humanity.

What I have come to learn is that we all have those moments in life that are wake up calls. These big moments stand out in our memory because they are emotional, and have so much to teach us. Many times, they teach us about love. How to love others. How to love better. And most importantly, how to love yourself. So if that turns out to be true, then could it be that each moment of our life offers us what we need and maybe not always what we want.

When you figure out you are lost on your path, you begin the amazing search of finding your true heart and soul. The one that is speaking to your biggest dreams and cannot be dimmed by your biggest fears.So when you see the signs and feel the tug in your heart, just maybe your destiny is calling.
