When I was little I attended church often with my family. Wednesday nights were religion class aka CCD. We would read over versus of the bible and have quizzes on where Jesus was born. As I got older my faith was something put on the back burner. I never thought about it. I didn’t really care to. Only knowing and thinking that being Catholic was either 100% or nothing. After college the term spiritual felt more fitting but again I wasn’t deep into any sort of “faith”. Spiritual just sounded better rather than telling someone I wasn’t religious. Truth be told, I have never had that connection people get when they pray but I have always felt a connection to something.
This past weekend was spent prepping for a surgery, a colonoscopy and endoscopy I had to have on Monday. Since I pretty much couldn’t do or eat anything I reflected on what was going on and tried to gain some clarity.
What is my life’s purpose?
Over the last couple month’s the blog has sort of shifted into a concentration on wellness and being “healthy” without me thinking much about it. You know by now that I have had to make some major lifestyle changes. Monday I found out those problems are related to having IBS and GERD. I wasn’t upset and at all in fact I was so relieved to hear the news. Over the past couple months I have enjoyed cooking and choosing healthier options but not knowing if this was actually helping was beyond frustrating. Now I can breath a sigh of relief. I do believe that it all happened for a reason and if I never went through this minor hurdle then I would have never changed my eating habits or been encouraged to trust my intuition.
In having some down time Tuesday to recover I started to read a new book that has literally changed my thoughts on finding “faith” and what my life’s purpose is. It has given me a sense of harmony and understanding. I do believe in a higher power and although it may not be conventional, it is mine. I have Oprah to thank for getting me hooked on her Super Soul Sunday and finding out about this life changing read. I hope to make a little shift in this blog to take you all on the journey with me! Nothing but realness over here…and the occasional fashion/design post (obviously). And although I am not too sure if the blogging community cares to read about these things I am lucky to have a little corner of the internet where I can share my own experiences regardless and hope that it helps others out as well.
“Emotions are classes in the Earth school. Some classes are about fear, and some are about love. The Universe is
your tutor, and your classroom is your life. The main course in the Earth school, Authentic Power, is the same for
everyone, but different students need different courses in order to complete it.”
