Applying what I’ve learned.
It’s been a while since I’ve written anything here, and I’ve deeply missed this space. From the beginning of my writing journey, I noticed that writing provided a sense of fulfillment for my creative soul. So, you can imagine my frustration when I faced writer’s block. After writing my last post, Crashing Into Me, I couldn’t find the words to write my next post. I tried for hours, which turned into days and weeks. My last post brought up some hard truths that I needed to face, and I guess I had to sit with it for a while before moving to the next piece.
The emotional response that came with facing those truths forced me to pivot my focus. I asked myself questions, journaled every day, had conversations with people close to me, and started reading books that provided spiritual guidance. It was giving the “soft girl era” mixed with “get your life together” vibes but in a very balanced way. There was something that my soul knew I needed, and I was on a mission to figure it out.
I don’t think I’ve ever been this intentional with myself. This was so different. It was like I unlocked a new level of self-awareness that gave me access to an “outside looking in” perspective of myself experiencing life. I could feel an entire world living within me internally. Every decision I made, every reaction I had, and my daily habits became clear, as if I was highlighting text in a book. I couldn’t believe how clear things were coming to me. Honestly, I’m still in shock. What’s even more shocking is how my spiritual gifts became stronger. I can see the truth in people just by being in the same atmosphere. Life appears so grand and precious to me now. I can feel the world breathing. It’s all so fascinating.
I’ve said, “Don’t get distracted by life things.” God pulled me away from my distractions to bring me clarity on how to emotionally deal with worldly troubles that bombard me. I’m grateful that He did. I feel more connected with myself (hence the upgrades to this newsletter). I’m learning to embrace who I am within while shedding the habits that no longer serve me and, most importantly, trusting God. He knows what I need and the desires of my heart, but I must make sure that my intentions for what I desire are pure. We all have a purpose and a calling in life. Align yourself with God and seek your truth for being here so you may obtain peace of mind along your journey in life. You have to break your old habits in order to fully become the person you are called to be. Study yourself and put those worldly distractions aside.
