Oh, wow…This has been a long time coming!
A lot has changed since I wrote my last blog post close to two years ago. Maybe that is why I couldn’t quite resonate with any of those posts and I decided to just begin on a clean slate.
It has been an incredible journey: I turned 22, and then 23. I became a naturalista, and then I sort of gave up (it is too much work, I would rather just live in braids!). I finished school and it is now a stage of do all that it takes to avoid the quarter-life crisis. I started coding (and actually enjoying it), something that I could have never imagined myself loving in a million years (life does have a great sense of humor).
It has been a great learning process in all dimensions. Learning that I have the power to ‘pack up my clothes’ and begin again the moment I realize I am hiding behind them instead of loving how they make me feel.
Being bold enough to release that which doesn’t serve me the moment my space begins to feel cluttered and uninspiring.
I have come to the realization that I cannot sit idly by and wait for beauty to strike, and so I must make it my relentless intention to seek that beauty daily, and the good thing is that it is always around, waiting to be found.
Above it all, I have especially learnt that I cannot trust inspiration to come exactly when I need it (I mean, I have waited an eternity for the inspiration to revive this blog), so I must act anyway.
The truth is, you cannot leave the aspects of your life that make you who you are in someone else’s hands, and it is up to you to create them yourself.
Of all the evolutions and learning that I have been going through, I am particularly glad that I learnt the importance of buying myself flowers, both hypothetically and in actuality. Either way, it has made my world beautiful (literally), and it is the perfect foundation for me to embrace and appreciate who I am and all that I am about.
I hope that this becomes your truth too: that you buy yourself flowers (in whatever sense you perceive that), and let it be a constant reminder of the love that you owe yourself to keep blossoming.
I hope you get the grace to give yourself that love that you give so freely to others… I hope you buy yourself flowers!
Love and Light.
