Wow. When I sit back and think about how far I've come in the past 8 or 9 years, it is actually mind boggling. It is so easy to get caught up in the day to day reality and feel like change is not happening and that you are "stuck" where you are. It isn't until you really start thinking about it that you realize you have been moving forward all along, even if it has been small steps.
I have worked on myself A LOT in the past few years. Whether it is through Reiki, Mediumship and Psychic studies, health and wellness, new friendships or setting stronger boundaries, one thing is for sure- I have definitely progressed. And although I am very proud of how far I have come, I was given a gentle reminder this morning that I still have work to do. In the past, this would have made me upset and anxious knowing that I wasn't going to reach my idea of "perfection". I have finally realized that learning and growing is a life long journey- one that will never end and quite frankly, I don't really want it to . The person I was way back when is so very different than the woman I am today. Not good or bad, just different. I am so confident in so many aspects of my life right now and yet there are still times when I second guess or doubt my capabilities.
The one thing I am certain of is that I am so grateful that I live in a time and place that awards me the opportunity to learn and grow. I have access to so many amazing people, I have connected with souls that challenge and support me in a way I never dreamed of and I am passionate about seeing growth in others as well. I will continue on this path and although I may be on a completely different one years from now, I embrace the changes that are bound to come my way.
Judging yourself is taking the easy route, it's working through it that makes you strong.
