I’ve been having conversations recently that reminded me of my own a-ha moments and my personal journey with overcoming fear that once debilitated me. I have learnt through my own experience that courage should be recognised at the heart of the vulnerable. In a world that advocates living a life of pretence, I bow down to those who keep their hearts open and live and speak their truth.
Some of the most devastating events in our life put us in direct alignment with our destiny. We have to learn how to move past the lessons in order to see our path. This can only emanate from possessing a brutal level of honesty. We need to combat enough fear within ourselves to be able to live the honesty of our own truth – no matter how dark or bright. This admission was always hard for me. I attached myself to the victim mentality and continuously attracted negativity in my life that perpetuated that theory. I often felt like one step forward ended in ten steps backwards – continuous self-sabotaging behaviour. It was only until I realised that my actions reflected who I was and my life was a product of my own mind-set that things started to change.
I learnt how to show kindness to unkind people. I forgave people who didn’t ask for forgiveness. I love and continue to love unconditionally. It is never too late to create a new context and set the tone for amazing things to manifest.
We have to simply trust the magic of new beginnings and know that everything happens for our greatest good.
