I’ve been toying all day with deleting my last Inspired Living post. I am amazed at how quickly our perspectives can change. I guess I shouldn’t be amazed when I think of life as being nothing if it’s not change. When I was writing that post I was in a certain frame of mind. Reading it today I feel like I’m reading the words of a woman who thinks she’s a victim. A domestic victim. My life is blessed and I have had a million opportunities to make great choices in my life, and I’ve done that many, many times. That is why I sit here in this abundant human life and can afford myself the luxury of continuously pondering what is my life path.
I studied Feng Shui and have benefited from that empowering practice for over 10 years now. I spent about 4 months this year absorbing the wisdom of essential oils and all their incredible properties and potentials. I am actively pursuing my interests – and with a goal and focus on discovering if this is a part of that life path.
But day-to-day I am making a positive impact on this world through my simple thoughts and actions. To look at my frame of mind when I was so focused on some financial ideal, some totally worldly measure of my worth, again…I’m amazed at what a day can do. Or an hour! Or a decade…consider what you thought you knew about life 10 years ago and how that compares to now. For me, I was a new mom, a year out of the work force, focusing on bettering my community and building a home.
Today I’m in a new season (okay, the theme for that last post still applies), and my perspective is different. In some ways I’m very much the same, but in some ways I am worlds away from that sweet, young person. That frame of mind is always changing, like everything around us. Feng Shui teaches us three important rules:
Everything is alive with energy.
Everything is always changing.
Everything is connected.
Change is going to happen. I can create what I want in my future, so I need to pay attention to what I’m sending out to the world if I want a life of fulfillment, abundance, and joy. I’m grateful for the ability to recognize the difference.
So I will continue to Root, Bloom, and keep my eye on the horizon until I can Soar~
