Today I am overflowing with love! Spring is here and I can feel new life blooming within me!
These first few months of 2019 have been chaotic! The end of a relationship, transitioning to a new home (living with just myself, plus my cats, for the first time ever), change within the business, and FLEAS in my home!
I’ve experienced stress, loneliness, frustration, helplessness, to name a few.
Yet at the same time, I’ve developed deeper love + gratitude for simply being alive, and all the beautiful experiences that come with this privilege.
Yes it’s been challenging, yes every day is faced with uncertainty, and yet, all this time, I’ve been perfectly okay. All this time, I’ve developed new friendships, experienced new thrills, pushed myself a little bit further and reaped the rewards.
I’ve felt so much love!
How can we feel this way even in hardship + chaos?
Because everything is temporary, and it all can change in an instant.
I clearly remember the stress of settling my dad’s estate after his passing. It was so confusing, tedious, and overwhelming. It seemed like every day we had new information that would make the process way harder, or way easier.
I remember telling myself at that time that I needn’t stress over anything because it can all change so quickly, and it will all work out in the end.
Admittedly, I don’t always take my own advice, but it’s always been true 🙂
And so through all this chaos, and as we transition into spring, I’m taking time to pause and root myself in the truth:
I’m here, I’m breathing, I’m alive, and what a beautiful privilege that is. Even more so, to share it with you.
In comparison, nothing else matters.
I hope you too feel the shift of love + lightness in the air, and can carry this feeling with you even in the stress and chaos.
To new life + possibilities blooming within us all!
