Retro-Posts consist of content that I wrote in the past, earlier on in my journey. You may notice that some of my ideas, concepts and understandings have evolved and deepened over time ~ I have decided that it is important to be completely open about my path, and take pride in the learning I have done along the way. I hope that it empowers some of you to recognize the need to allow yourself to shed all that no longer serves you, and be open to changing your perceptions, and growing into and out of each stage in the process of self-exploration and self-realization. I have learned to appreciate this spiritual adventure, and look forward to further transformation as I move into the future ~ care to join me?
In reflection of the last several months, I came across a brief guest post that I made for my friend, Elena's blog in May. What perfect timing... who knew that I would be writing this letter, not only to my younger self, but to my future self, as well!
"The three most important things I would share with my younger self:
1) Everyone is sensationally beautiful in a unique way that only they can master. No matter what, always search for this beauty, and honor it; begin with yourself.
2) At the end of the day, when you look in the mirror, the only one looking back at you is yourself. Make your decisions and choices with only your happiness in mind; this will make the people who truly love you happier than any other act you could possibly perform.
3) Be you, without apology. There is an empty space in the world that only you can fill. You were blessed with your life, your gifts and your beauty for a reason… Don’t waste God’s and Goddess' time with drama, fear or uncertainty. They know you and your abilities better than you know yourself."
