A New Decade of Hopes and Dreams
How was the last decade for you?
If I had to give the last decade one word it would be ‘growth’. This decade I had my arse kicked from Sydney to Paris by the universe when it came to how I was doing life, work, love and health and it made me stop, take notice and change the way I was doing EVERYTHING.
It sent me on a whole wonderful journey to learning about health, the human body and the power of our mind. I fell in love all over again with humanity and became a life coach and wanted to shout AGAIN from the highest mountain that YOU can do it. Whatever your hopes and dreams are, you are powerful beyond belief and what it takes is a little curiosity, being conscious and you can set your life on a whole new course.
This decade also challenged my relationship. It taught me the tough lesson that someone once told me that “a relationship is like a garden and needs tending everyday otherwise it starts to dry up and die” – is true. Relationships like gardens need nurturing; you can’t put them on the back-burner whilst you run off and do life and hope that it will be exactly the same when you are ready and waiting. The universe kicked my arse again, it put a big dent in my heart and asked me to take another big look. It sent me through a burning ring of fire, kind of like the ones you find at carnivals and you would never jump through if you weren’t forced.
Well, I went through the ring of fire and on the other side I was forged in the most beautiful peaceful way. I found that sometimes you need life to get really, really messy, so messy that all you can see is mud for miles before you can start to clean up. I learnt that things that appear broken can be fixed if you are willing to put the work in and that sometimes when you jump through a ring of fire somewhere in there you let go of your old baggage, it just gets burnt off in the process and you are lighter, clearer and freer.
But the greatest lesson I got from this decade was saying YES to myself again. Asking what I wanted from life, what brought me joy and to feel the freedom and love that I felt for life when I embarked on this journey 20 years ago. I reconnected to the most pure of loves, my passion for life, what it means to be a woman and creativity and it lead me out of the maze and back to me.
Would I want to go through the last ten years again? There has been so many dark days, so many tears, so many questions, so much to learn, so many courses, so many new relationships and so much travelling.
My answer is YES. To have gained this much of me I would go through it all again. There has been so much joy, love, learning, laughter, creativity, friendship, personal reward and illumination for one girl. All I can feel is gratitude. I feel roots deep down into the ground that only can come from knowing who you are and what you want. I feel a deep love for you, sweet you, who is bothering to read this and the knowledge that you too can feel this way if you are willing to let go of the reins and let life’s magic show you the way.
So as the year starts to come to a close, what do you want, dear friend, from the next decade? How was the last decade for you and what are you grateful for?
