I thought my life would take a new direction a few years go. I told myself I deserved it. I worked my butt off. Others said I could do it.
Then life threw a curveball and was like… NOPE YOU CAN’T AND NOT EVEN SORRY!
I was devastated. I cried a lot and beat myself up for days but eventually I got better. Time healed my wounds and I soon realised that I had just learned this lesson the hard way.
Don’t expect anything from anyone.
I could have told myself said that life is cruel… it wasn’t fair… why me?! Then stomp my foot on the ground like a little girl.
Surprisingly though… I didn’t do that. It was a revelation. I wasn’t bitter or angry. I was more disappointed in myself that I had expected my life to head in a certain direction. This was my blessing in disguise.
I used this time to make some changes and try new things. This was when I started yoga, meditation and eating healthy. I researched spirituality and read books like ‘The Power of Now’ and ‘The Alchemist’ to expand my knowledge of how others see the world. It was a little changes like these that helped me gain focus. It was my refresh button.
It was a horrible and dark time for me. Now 2 years on, an opportunity came around again and I succeeded. Positive mind. Positive vibes. Positive life.
