What a week. It's been exactly seven days since I left Costa Rica and flipped my perspective on what it means to be happy.
I came home to my boyfriend, my business, and a new frame of mind. In one week, my business model has shifted and my romantic relationship ended. I can't say I was entirely thrilled to move back home for the third time in five years. I like set and clear lines - not muddy waters. At one point, I threw my head back and laughed loudly, "what a fucking life I live!".
Whether it's the lunar eclipse or something I ate for breakfast, it does not matter how I got here. All that matters is that I am here. This is where I'm at, and it feels good. And good is good enough.
It goes to show that what you think, you become. I was feeling stagnant in many domains of my life. I felt obligated to show up, smile, and do this for many, many years to come. Not that it didn't make me initially happy. I was stoked to be so grown up, so fast! But it turns out, seeking happiness elsewhere tends to knock you back into yourself eventually. Little dialogues and stories kept creeping their way into my thought patterns that told tales of a life worth living; of contentment and peace, of unconditional love, and acceptance of my true self.
Moving forward I am committing to me. I'm being entirely 'selfish'. I am giving love to myself so that I can give it to others. I can give my energy generously without feeling depleted at the end of the day. This goes for people, experiences, practices, anything; a fulfilling exchange of energy that embodies abundance, forgiveness, and joy.
I will keep on keepin' on. There is no time like the present to propel into the unknown. I simply have no expectations of my future - it hasn't happened yet! Working diligently with my values and needs as a woman, as a business owner, and as a human being, I am confident the unknown will be fascinating to watch unfold.
