I’m one of those one day at a time girls. I’m not kidding. Quite honestly it is a hard-earned way of living that I embrace with my whole heart. I don’t force solutions and I don’t believe that life has some rough constrained schedule that must be adhered to at all costs. There’s so much freedom to express, grow and love. I have come to trust in the divine flow of the universe and the interconnected nature of all things. And the real beauty is that I begin anew each day; fresh, unobstructed, full of hope.
There have been many days, recently, where living one day at a time felt too challenging for me. I was in the throes of growth and change, working through a process of acceptance and expansion that evoked a lot of vulnerability. I was unsure of myself and had several moments when slipping back into egotistical disconnect felt like it would have been a lot more comfortable. So, I went to half a day at a time! And the real kicker is that with such a subtle adjustment, I was able to transition myself mindfully, bodily and spiritually without unlatching from my heart.
This year I have come to really love myself. I’m still working on absolute trust and belief in myself completely on a daily basis. But I know, with the love it will come. And this self-love invites me into a deeper relationship each and every day with anyone with whom I come into contact. The grace of those encounters are so much a part of who I have become that I cannot fathom life without any of them. Surely that is the life of my Spirit fully manifested within the light of another.
I believe this is the way of living that the God of my understanding has always intended for me. It is such a tender acknowledgement of the lovely woman that I have become, am still becoming, always aspired to be, whatever, I am astounded by it.
Next year has so many wonderful invitations imbued within it. I can feel them percolating beneath the surface of my heart, ready to manifest when they are ready. I am merely a vessel for all this potential wonder. And I have learned that beauty and grace do not create themselves in a vacuum. I need others, many many many others and I have had the good fortune to be in the presence of so many gentle loving spirited people; all of whom help to create this beautiful messy tender expression of the life I am living. I am forever humble and grateful.
And with such strong support and love I am now realizing and creating a space for my company that will bring the funky brand of health and wellness that is livebig365 to the center (literally) of Morristown. It will be a salon that brings the community together; energized and engaged in their own respective desires to become unstuck, move forward and connect with their hearts, one day at a time……
The theme for year 2 is lovebig! In all ways, with as many people as possible.
