One of my lives greatest mentors taught me that “every day in life is just practice”. Relationships whether they be romantic ones or friendships are just practice. It has been one of the biggest most epic things that I have ever heard in my entire life. It has been something that has been sitting and brewing within me for the last couple of weeks.
And I was trying hard to dissect it and allow it to make sense to me. And it hit me hard today when I was communicating and connecting with my work family.
Everyday is about giving your all and playing big. It made me wonder how to make my connections stronger with the people around me, and the thing that showed up most for me is when I bring my all, without judgements and I am full of energy my connections become so much more powerful.
Today I felt amazing, I woke up at 9. This in itself was a luxury. I made myself a giant peach, mango, and banana smoothie and I went to work thinking it was going to be just a regular day. I went to work, without any make-up on and my hair was still wet from my shower and the first thing I got told today, was that I looked pretty. That one comment in itself just made my entire day so much more better, but my physical appearance didn’t change from what it normally was. Inside I felt peaceful, happy and that showed. And the day just continued to get better, when a friend shared a piece of poetry he wrote with me. And it made me realize we are absolutely nothing without connections that we make with each other. We have the power to tear each other down or build each other up to become powerful. But, although we are investing the time and work into one another, we must also invest the time and work into ourselves.
“Investing work into ourselves” looks differently for every single person. But, I’ll break the hard news to you that not one single person is perfect. And that in itself is perfection, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t any areas in our lives that one can’t work on. Currently I have been investing the last 2 years on just working on my own well being. Concentrating strongly on my own mind, and learning to deal with situations in a powerful way that won’t leave me depressed or feeling that the world is crumbling at my feet.
What does investing in myself mean?
The last 2 years of my life have been amazing, my first investment was going to Isreal. My spirituality really awoke there. My spirituality has nothing to do with religion, its my connection with the universe and how grounded I feel.
I came back to participate in Landmark and was able to finish the Landmark course and the advanced course and that was so freaking powerful and amazing. Through landmark I met so many people from all ways of life and it awoke in me a new life force that was craving connections.
Very recently I connected with a group of people through a program called “Relational Intelligence”, and I learned more about myself and healed old wounds inside of me that I didn’t even know needed to be addressed.
I am so proud to be practicing life with amazing individuals, those that are currently present in my life, I want to give you all a virtual hug, and tell you I love you from the bottom of my heart.
And those that have left footprints on my heart and are no longer in my life presently, I want to let you know that I am so grateful for every single experience I have shared with you, thank you for your time in my life, thank you for your love, thank you for your existence.
And if we currently don’t talk, I just want to let you know your still so very loved and dear to me. Every single person that I have connected with in my life has left their mark on my heart and I treasure, value and appreciate you.
Go practice life! Don’t forget that love is your most powerful weapon.
One Love Always,
