Life is definitely interesting. I have had my fair share of “really” interesting experiences more so than I thought I ever would and honestly I do not know how I ever managed to get through them. I know I am not the only person to have these experiences because that is what life is. I know I am a strong person (learned the hard way) and I have a great husband who has weathered the storms with me. But, still I wonder sometimes, “what the heck”?
As a result of all of these interesting experiences, some of which I never thought I would ever overcome, I had to find and trust my authentic self. I needed to rely on my authentic self to make serious decisions that would permanently impact my life.
The journey to my authentic self really came to a head in 2013 because of health issues. I felt like the universe said you have to stop and take notice.
My authentic self expedition continues to this day and I am amazed how much I continue to learn about myself. One thing for sure is that I have come to learn how to feel comfortable with my authentic self. When I allow myself to just be it feels so right. Navigating this “new /uncovered ” me has been challenging. My personality type is one that likes to be on top of things others may say I am a control freak (but, that sounds so harsh though). Needless to say it has served me well until I realized that I have no control. I am learning and practicing that I cannot be in control. And I can’t be in control if I am to receive the gifts of life. Because there are gifts in all of my interesting experiences.
