Lately, I have felt more in the flow.
Dedicating more of my time to self-love, self-trust and self-worth has seen me focus on my writing projects, and attend to the daily “must-do’s” in a state of relative ease, grace and joy. This is not to say I haven’t had to face challenges.
Self-trust felt forced upon me as we struggled to find a house to rent. I had to learn to let go of what I had no control over. It’s not as if I didn’t know there is a divine time for all things, it was at another level of understanding and acceptance. No matter what I did, it wasn’t going to happen any faster! And surrendering was truly liberating.
Eventually, after a whirl of seeming lies and deceit from multiple real estate agents, we found a private rental and breathed a sigh of relief. Though we did have to extend our lease by one week, while our new landlord prepared our new abode. This caused another hiccup where we couldn’t move in over the course of a weekend and could only do this on a Monday. Add to this that it was Thomas’ first day back at Uni after his semester break, and I felt frazzled. Brad and I, though, dug deep and got it done. And the best part was our new house was beautifully presented… it’s the first rental home I haven’t had to clean!
Self-love then arose when rest became a priority to recuperate. It was also time to purchase those new sunglasses that I wrote about in one of my previous blog posts. This resulted in being asked when I’d last had my eyes checked. ‘Hmm… too long, like nine or ten years ago.’
I knew one eye was worse than the other, yet I wasn’t aware that I had a common condition called Blepharitis that made my eyes itchy, blurry, and at times pooled and ran as if I had a blocked tear duct. Thankfully, it is easy enough to treat this and will take less than six weeks to break the parasite’s life cycle. As for being able to read… I was so excited when I looked through the right lens at the optometrist and could see the bottom row of letters. Yippee, I can see!
Here I am with my first pair of reading glasses. I’m told it’s an age thing, and nothing to do with my vocation 😉
Self-worth got my attention when delivering my latest Write to Know Self sessions. These gatherings truly make my heart sing with joy. Yet, over the past four years of presenting these, the number of people attending hadn’t increased, despite my marketing efforts. Add to this an inner desire to expand, and a voice within me that said I could reach more people if I took it online, and I heeded the call to change.
There’s a quote that accurately represents this…
Work smarter, not harder!
Being in the flow ensures I listen to my guidance and take action when required, be true to self and honour my knowing. If I may assist you with your flow, please let me know.
Have you been aware of any, or all, of the trio of self-attributes lately? I look forward to reading about your experiences in the comments below.
Thank you for reading and sharing in this wondrous adventure called life. May you sparkle bright and shine your light.
