Earlier this month I received an email from my meditation coach about an upcoming virtual WHY Summit with Gerry Visca and Angela Kontgen (my coach). Honestly it was a small investment for the value received, of course I was drawn to the number, it felt meant to be $111. Included with the day and a half virtual summit with recordings, also beautiful books published by Gerry with stories of real life people, real life experiences, people like you and me.
When I heard the date, I didn’t put much more thought into it, January 29 and 30th, the end of January, surely by then we would have snow and be able to use our snowmobiles (How to get Pam to enjoy winter more…? oh how I love to get out into the fresh air, beautiful scenery and ride!). But I still bought it, the time being recorded was a benefit, however I just felt compelled and that all would work out.
With a deeper dive into myself in 2020, I felt true healing begin. Of the time that vaguely began, off and on, kind of a stumbling journey, many years ago. 2020 gave me stability and a base, somewhat ironic given the state of the world. I cannot deny fear, felt early on in the year, feeling energetically off and not liking it. Something needed to shift in a very big way, and it was going to happen whether I wanted it to or not.
I began 2021 with an open heart, a new appreciation of life, gratitude for our health, home and each other. A yearning to continue my inward journey. I began blogging, because I enjoy writing and enjoy reading about real people, real life. Truthfully, the word “celebrities”, feels negative and heavy, a large group of people that it really doesn’t matter to my daily life. Its REAL people who I find intriguing, living and learning in real life. Who you can feel when they speak, their authenticity and ingenuity.
I appreciate my journey I have been on, the ups and even the downs. The down’s was my push for personal growth, knowing that I needed the deep dive but wouldn’t lean in. Until I had to. That gentle push that one day may perhaps feel like a shove or kick down. Listen to your inner soul, your inner voice. You will find your way.
This morning Gerry asked us to think of not how, but why do I exist? I think of this daily. Of how I was able to harness my own health and shift it to thriving. Without even having to “think” this is what came to me… “I bring health inspiration, empowerment and alignment into the lives of mom’s.” How do I want people to feel about me? Genuine, Authenticity, Compassion, Transformation of my Health.
My real life. Of how trauma (whether emotional or physical) can stunt our growth personally, professionally and with empowered health. When we fall, we have the choice to get back up – when we choose to!
Set aside the HOW? This was a road bump on my journey.
Every single one of us who are living authentically, can learn from one another. We can learn from those who also choose to not live authentically, and re-direct our drive and focus to align with our true soul. Lifelong learning.
Last year I went to a couple new year events, and I am truly grateful this is the new year event that came up for me, I truly feel aligned and am excited for the rest of the day! I am grateful for investing this time and money into myself!
