It has been a long time since I published an article. As I healed from my abuse and focused on forgiveness, life took me to a place of falling apart to rebuild myself. I learned that we find our light in the darkness. And we find our joy in the pain. And we find our clarity in the fog.
We may not always notice the blessing in those difficult times but it is those dark moments that help us find our voice, vision, and passion again.
It is funny that I had to fall apart to recognize that my soul had a vision but I had skipped a few steps on that path. And building myself back together helped me realize living in the moment, recognizing the blessing, and finding gratitude made the journey exponentially easier.
I had spent all my life pushing against the current. I had always gotten a vision and forced myself into that role even if I wasn’t ready. I had always created the perfect scenario for self-sabotage to creep in and stop my progression. But the moment I changed the way I looked at daily life and recognized the lesson in each day, life drastically changed. And day by day, I began to see that life doesn’t have to be difficult, if we listen, see, speak, taste, smell, and feel each moment.
So I invite you to slow down, and savor the moment, even the difficult ones because there is a lesson there. And the quicker you recognize the lesson and express gratitude for the life you have now, the quicker your dreams become reality. And I invite you to make lemonade out of those lemons. I invite you to find the sweetness in the sour. Because life is short and each moment is meant to bring you closer to your joy.
Peace in Chaos
Breathe my dear shed your fear.
Feel my dear your dream is near.
Sense my dear let the stress melt away.
Taste my dear the sweet is in the sour.

Smell the calm amidst the chatter.
