Of late I have been thinking about my life, moments in my life I treasure and how I spend my time. I had a moment of profound insight when I stopped and looked around me, with the intention to live with awareness and not sleepwalk my life away. I looked at the one’s I love and how blessed I am to be given the gift of love, people who love me unconditionally and truthfully. I had a walk around our apartment and looked through my wardrobe, I had a major wardrobe cleanse. I donated all of the clothing items I haven’t worn and wasn’t in love with to Vinnies. I made a vow to myself to only purchase wardrobe and makeup items that I truly LOVE and get EXCITED about. I made a vow to myself to only bring items into our home that we truly love and make us feel good; I believe that everything holds energy. I am more conscious about how I feel in spaces, places and who I surround myself with. Energy is such a pivotal element to living well, and when you are in tune with your life, you understand that your inner compass serves as a marker to how you feel. I have learnt that often we live our lives with an unconscious unawareness of how our lives unfold, we go through the motions but we are not feeling alive in the moment. Let’s become more aware of the moments as they unfold, our breath as we take them and how we feel in the moment. When we live with awareness we are more likely to make decisions that serve us and not destroy our spirit.
I encourage you to think about these questions:
- How often do you buy items that you end up tossing away and not appreciating? When you are making purchases of any kind, if you are unsure, walk away, think about it and if you still love the item then it is meant to be.
- How often do you surround yourself with people who drain your energy and who you don’t connect with you on a deeper level? You are the captain of your ship and your own timekeeper, so why are you giving away your time in such a reckless way.
- Are you aware of how you are feeling about your life? When you are in tune with your life, you will feel your life speak to you. When you are in flow, you feel a sense of peace and calm that comes from a deeper understanding of how your life unfolds.
