It has been an intense beginning to 2020, the new decade has definitely started with a bang for us but nowadays I practice worrying less and have faith in the universe and trust that despite how things may appear at present, I have to believe that we are not destined for suffering and that things can change in a heartbeat, so maintaining a positive mentality is all that we have right now. Plus we have gone into a 4 universal year and that’s a manifestation number and so it’s important, if not necessary to keep my thoughts aligned with what I’m wanting/needing in my life right now.
It’s crazy how much can happen and change you in a decade. Looking back over the last ten years brings forth a magnitude of emotions. A the beginning of the last decade, 2010, my first nephew was born and that changed me in ways I couldn’t have seen coming. It opened me up on an emotional level and though I didn’t realise at the time but I believe his birth reignited my empathic roots and though it probably took the entire decade to realise and understand what being an empath means, all that matters is I’m here and understanding of it now.
2010 was also the very beginning of what became to be a decade of change! Some change that I knew had to happen and some change felt as though I had been slapped in the face from out of nowhere. I would have to write a book to cover the changes myself and we as family went through, there’s no way it could be achieved on the blog sensibly. But despite how tough those years felt at the time, they have helped me to grow in ways that I’m actually proud off and I say that with humble heart not arrogance. It taught me that not all change is bad and even though sometimes change can feel bad, heart-wrenching even but once you come through that pain, you can choose to let that change help shape you rather then let it define you.
I learnt that when you’re in hole of darkness, the kind that feels like you’re never going to get out of actually isn’t forever. If you’re open and active to not just giving up then with each day you’re slowly healing, even if it doesn’t feel like it, you are and before you know it’s been a year and you’re like okay Maybe I can do this, maybe I will actually feel better and then you are. I realised that inner strength is a crazy thing and what we are capable of overcoming is remarkable.
Despite how challenging the last decade felt, I have come out of it feeling the most enlightened, the most aligned I have ever felt. I am more aware of who I am and what I’m capable off more then I have ever been in my lifetime and though I will always keep in mind that I am constantly evolving and continually learning about myself. I believe we have to continue to keep an open mind to self improvement and be aware of our ego. The last decade was my teacher and hopefully this decade Will be my opportunity to use what I’ve learnt to better my life and the life of my family.
