Lately I’ve been doing some soul searching. I am currently working on a big project. One that is turning out to be not only mind blowing, but also eye-opening because in putting together this project I’ve learned so much from the people that I’m working with. I don’t want to reveal too much about it because when it launches I want it to be a surprising treat to the people that I serve and care so much about. But have you ever worked on something that pulled you in so deep that it made you think and wonder about your own life and what you were doing and how you were going about doing it? Well, that’s what has happened to me over the past 30 days and it has gotten me not only inspired, but it has also got me planning and creating. I have found myself mapping out my plans for the entire year and even into 2015.
It is amazing what happens when you realize that your life is an empty page and you can design it however you want. This realization makes you want to take charge and take control.
The end of the year is a good time for soul searching
I am closing out the year with a positive take on life and with the realization that nothing can stop a mind that is determined to succeed. You see my friends with each passing year I’ve gotten more and more clear and focused. I haven’t stopped learning and because of that it has made it easier for me to understand and get clarity of thought and purpose. I meet so many people who are confused and lack focus. And sometimes when you point them in the right direction and get them on track they still want to steer the car for some reason in the wrong direction. I’ve been that way before. But no more.
Yeah, I’m a little bit older and a whole lot wiser. I definitely have some personal wounds and injuries from past pain. I’ve been broken down by love and lifted up by love, I’ve been betrayed by so-called friends and then lifted up by true friends. Yes. I’ve been on the roller coaster of life and I’m still on the roller coaster of life, which never ceases to amaze me. But I am overjoyed and in awe with excitement of the reality of being afforded the gift of a new day and the power of reinvention. That is the gift that is given to us all on a daily basis.
So, if you’ve ever done any soul searching before, you know how it feels to be filled up with possibilities. To be thankful for the gifts to honor the heartbreaks and see them for what they are – lessons learned. This is a short and powerful journey that we’re on and if there is one thing piece of advice that I would give anyone else who is like me, taking a look back and learning a lesson, it is to act on the knowledge that you’ve received over the years. Don’t be afraid. Have courage and faith to take action on those things that you believe. Take action even if you don’t know what you’re doing. You will find your way and that’s a promise.
