gratitude.

gratefulness.

compassion.

These were the words that were ringing in my head this week. the winds of change have been flowing through our lives like no other, and now we have come to the end of Mercury Retrograde which is exciting. Even though we have to consider the shadow period after the end of the Retrograde, it feels like there are some people that are waiting to mash the pedal in the driver’s seat of their car, ready to go. Fire, love, and passion are what seems to be resonating in the air right now. Even through hardships that we may have encountered recently, we have still been able to see some sort of light in some respect at the end of it all. Gratitude. The practice of being present is a constant act that one has to follow and dedicate themselves to – I have said this time and time again, and we are here to connect on a higher level.

This week, I’ve had the opportunity to step outside of my comfort zone a lot more in a manner that I wasn’t necessarily expecting. I’ve done things that weren’t necessarily what I anticipated having to do. From jury duty to covering ISS one day this week to basically being a babysitter to mentoring kids and their relationship woes, I’ve endured a lot of victories that I can sit back and reflect on. Consistent action is what I feel has been the catalyst this whole time when it comes to well-being. It just has to be the right type of action that you need to uncover that lights your fire, and when you get there, you’re pretty much set. Then, you officially have the blueprint in regards to where you are headed because of the self-activated actions that are put behind your badass. Gratefulness.

As this is happening, I have given myself the most love possible. I’ve been surrounding myself with people who help ‘fill my bucket’ as they say. And I fill theirs. I’ve been having profound conversations with a variety of people. I’ve been able to minister in ways that I didn’t even anticipate being able to do, or ever saw myself doing. This is all I’ve ever wanted out of life and the gratitude that I feel being of service to others is unexplainable. It also helps me to get through my reality in a way that I truly feel present and also give myself that compassion to keep going and follow my heart. A lot of the time, those voices that I hear inside my head aren’t mine. They’re the voices of people that have said things to me in life that stuck, and they came from people that I trusted and loved in a way that I took their word as bond. That narrative would begin to replay in my head for quite some time, and I realized that those destructive timelines only play themselves out into self-sabotage. Taking a moment to love on myself and catch myself as best as I can any time I feel like I’m stepping into a territory of feelings that doesn’t need to be given too much energy is a task. But it’s a task that I welcome on and heal myself in the process.

You’re moving fast in life right now. Things are about to pick up. The winds are blowing. The oceans are moving. Will you survive and thrive, or will you fall by the wayside? The choice is yours. There’s accelerated motion in your DNA right now towards your goals. Put some time aside to make them real. And take care of your heart. You deserve you, and we deserve you too.

Amen. Asé.
