It’s been a challenging year for all.
I can’t help but feel we were sucked in to some kind of weird vortex and spat back out.
Do you feel that way too? Have you been experiencing some really unusual things?
I guess when you are someone who is becoming more aware about yourself and about the things that are important to you in your life, you start to pay more attention to what shows up.
You begin to think - is this part of a grand plan? Is this part of MY grand plan?
I don't remember writing the script on this one that's all and I surely would have written the script another way - you know one with the happily ever after, and the story line that is too good to be true.
After all, that's how the movies unfold for us, right?
In reality, life is much more complex than just another movie.
I'll bet you can't fit your life in 3 hours and 30 minutes. Yep you betcha, I googled the Titanic, aka longest movie ever, which took 3 hours and 30 minutes.
Here's the thing about my complicated life.... you couldn't even have conjured a story this good.
My house was one of many houses in my neighbourhood to be smashed to smithereens by hailstones in the recent hailstorm. Just as covid-19 was unprecedented - this storm was unprecedented.
I am fortunately one of the luckier ones, who can still remain in their home but it got me thinking about how far along on my self-discovery journey I really am.
I recently participated in a communication workshop within the learning platform I share, and realised that no matter what challenges and circumstances I am faced with, I always have a choice. A choice to react and respond in ways that serve me or don't serve me.
Being on this self-discovery journey, supported by this collaborative community, has taught me to trust myself and look within for all the answers I am looking for.
The way in which the platform works is through the context created that says everything you want for yourself and your life is available by becoming laser focussed on who you are and providing value. But you've got to get clear on the value you provide to the world.
What I realised was I was so busy looking out in the world for the past 40 years, when I should have been looking in the mirror.
Your experiences have shaped and moulded you. You have become this unique individual who absolutely has something to offer this world. When is now the time to turn the microscope on you?
Hi my name is Angela. I have loved writing since I was able to hold a pencil in my hand. I soon learnt I had a gift of connecting with my ancestors through writing before my 30th birthday.
