I am mindful that life isn’t always grand. It is with a large exhale, that I acknowledge and even embrace when life takes an uncomfortable turn. It isn’t about being happy all the time (that isn’t realistic), but it is about how you turn a difficult situation into an opportunity to perhaps learn something.
As I walk through, sometimes crawl through, this emotional cleanse, a shift has occurred. Creatively speaking, the ideas for writing are flowing. I can’t imagine why I didn’t do this earlier. Also, I am beginning to take risks while cooking. Never in my wildest dreams did I think it would manifest into the kitchen. It is possible, that I watch too many cooking shows, but in any case, my family is reaping the rewards. I guess, it is making me more brave, giving me more confidence, and allowing my spirit to emerge. While being smothered in a pool of toxicity, I lost my spark.
Happiness is inside job. It is the constant journey of being the best person you can be. All I have to do is show up and suit up.I am convinced that, while this process is hard, I am seeing myself shed the baggage that has been weighing me down for years.
