Life… what is it?
As someone who has been a deep thinker from a young age, this has been, for me, a year of many, many musings.
This is a year where I’ve welcomed a soul into the world and said goodbye to a departed one.
Hellogoodbye. A formidable juxtaposition.
We’ve seen love and light take to the streets, raising consciousness amongst fear and ignorance.
We’ve seen a United country divided. A formidable juxtaposition.
What is this thing called life?
It seems to me, that life is unfinished work.
Life is an unfinished process. We are here to do the work.
What work you may ask?
Isn’t that the million dollar question
We check things off, only to find them on our list once again.
We move through childhood, schooling, marriage, middle age, career, retirement, and old age. Or maybe we don’t.
Life is a series of processes, and many hold the image of a destination as their ultimate goal
Yet life is really more about striving toward …
Goodwill, kindness, and sharing who it is You really are
Life is about encompassing
Encompassing Grace, wisdom, discernment, gratitude, and service
Life is about our soul’s revolutionary evolution
Life is about leaning into the present moment
Allowing the unmanifested to unfold in its due Divine time
Trusting the abundance that was created just for us
Taking ahold of your story, letting go of ego story, and walking forward one faithful step at a time
Life is about forgiving who you were yesterday
Forgoing worry about who you may be tomorrow
By expressing who you are today
Being the best you is the only thing there really is to do
Life is about acceptance not expectance
Life is about turning recovery and adversity into strength and discovery
Life is about letting go of who you think you should be and embracing the gifts that were designated just for you
Life is about allowing others to walk their Truth while giving yourself permission to do the splendid same
Life is about integrity in a gritty world
Life is about showing up unapologetically, shedding false narratives and fear-based beliefs
Life is about mustering courage to give up everything that you are not, so judgment.has.also.to go
In this process of unfinished work, which we call life, the only thing that’s complete is love
Life is about love
