Well, it has been anotehr year. That makes 3 years since I first met Giselle and my life began to change. I have certainly done a lot of growing and changing in these past 3 years, and I think Giselle has done some of her own as well.
I am still making my way and figuring out my path but I am definitely doing so with more pep in my step. The changes in me are amazing and I am excited to see what is going to happen each and every day. What a gift Giselle has given me by holding sacred space when I needed and kicking me in the ass when needed.

I had an epiphany the other day at work. I had noticed recently that I was judging people all day at work for stupid things like running the stop sign, or not pulling into my site to donate, or being impatient because the person in front was actually stopping at the stop sign, you know lots of little things.
I have been catching myself in these moments of judgement and asking who does this belong to, which is one very useful tool from Access Conscoiusness, which is another topic all together. Anyway, the idea is that if you ask who does this belong to and you feel lighter, then it really doesn’t belong to you so you can let it go.

I have been absent for quite a while now and am finally coming out of the dreary routine of simply exsisting and getting back to doing what I want and what I love.
I finally realized that I fell right into that trap of routine, going to work, coming home, sleeping, etc. You know what I am talking about. It is easy to get pulled into that trap and I was pulled in hard this time.

Sometimes life gets in the way. It gets in the way of doing the things I really want to do. There is a balance that is needed to allow for the things that need to get done and for the things that I want to get done. I am still working on finding that balance.
As much as I want my life to be a specific way, I realize that it is a process to get to that point. I take steps every day to get me to that point but sometimes I wonder if that is enough. Sometimes, I also get so caught up in what needs to be done that I forget about what I want.

Well here we are, 2 years have passed since I met Giselle and WOW! what a 2 years it has been. I have certainly changed a lot and my world is a bit a different. Or my thinking about the world has changed. Either way, I do feel like I am living in a different world than before.
I do not think I could have scripted a better story for my life, although I know someone did. 😉
