Hello out there… Happy 2017…
It’s been a while since I’ve written. Apparently I spent the second half of 2016 missing in action from writing. I don’t want to bore you all with details but 2016 is no doubt one of the most challenging year in Natasha’s Book of Life.
Admittedly, I am a bit of a control freak… I like it best when everything falls into place as I expected. Yet I’ve come to realize that the journey of life is full of surprises and unpredictable. Nothing is for certain. Have you had one of those years when you seem to be challenged in every possible way imaginable? Emotionally, mentally, physically and spiritually? It’s a humbling experience going through all the life transitions at once but at the same time, it is in line with my aspiration for knowledge; finding out and experiencing “what I don’t know I don’t know” have always been my ambition in life.
Humans are probably one of the most resilient beings ever created. We are capable of overcoming a whole lot more than we think we are capable of. Every time I’ve encountered a challenge I thought would kill me for sure, I somehow figured out a way to overcome it. Ha ha ha! I guess it stems from the fact that I am a stubborn woman who refuses to give up!
The secret to it all is locked up in our minds! Each and every one of us has a “fighter” within us waiting to be activated, ready fight for us. Pain, grief, disappointments and losses can be used as motivators for our internal “fighters”. Lessons of life are proofs that we are alive! Allow yourself the luxury to embrace life in all of it’s good and bad and know that with each experience you come out stronger. If you are happy, enjoy it! If you are hurting inside, acknowledge it, nurture your pain and it will pass. So long as you let your fighter prevail and choose not to give up, when you go to sleep tonight, chances are that you will wake up to see another day!
I invite you all to try this with me! I would love it if you write and share your stories with me! Step into 2017 discovering what you don’t know you don’t know!
Until next time, I send you love and light…
