A few weeks ago, I posted about some changes I had started going through. I continued to work on myself over those weeks, but then, while on vacation, I had a breakthrough.
All the feelings of not feeling quite like myself came to a halt.
Peace and deep internal happiness surfaced.
My mind started clearing up, and my heart flourished.
Somethings that seemed so hard to reach, like finding my old laid back self again, were attained.
A good friend of mine pointed out to me, that feeling zen is not about where I am, it's within me. So I can always find and be myself, no matter where I am. I came back from vacation, determined to remain in this zen state I experienced while away. And I have, for the most part.
I must say, the universe has put me to the test within only a few days of returning. And while I won't go into the details of what has happened, I will say that I was briefly thrown out of my zen state (I say thrown because it felt like I was hit by a bus). But after talking with amazing friends and a cheesecake and green tea outing and a good night sleep later, I feel zen again. It was all just a bump in the road and I can only be impacted by negativity if I allow it. And I don't. Maybe I did a few months ago, maybe I did briefly yesterday, but not anymore.
I am loving this new/old me!
Being positive feels SO good!
Life is too beautiful and too short to not live it fully in a happy, kind, positive and loving way.
I have been meditating almost daily for the past while, which has made such a huge difference for me! It really helps me put things in perspective, helps me calm down if I feel stressed, helps me reflect.
Life is not about reaching a destination, but about choosing what path you want to go on and the journey you experience on it. ~ Me
Deep right? Ha! I am feeling so excited about turning 30 next week, now that I've experienced this huge breakthrough! If it feels this amazing to grow spiritually and know yourself better at 30, I can't wait to see what the rest of my life brings!
In love and light,
