me, myself and I

If this trip is teaching me anything it is teaching me the beauty of being able to spend time with myself and to actually enjoy it.  I have been so preoccupied with everything else in my life recently that I have forgotten how important it is to actually just spend time in my own company.

Spending time alone gives you the opportunity to reflect on, to understand and to accept who it is that you are and what it is you want out of life.  Sometimes our lives can become so consuming we forget to do just that and that is a very dangerous thing. This puts us in tailspin of reactiveness leaving us vulnerable to our own ego and fears, which makes it impossible to hear our own I inner guidance.

The key to living an inspired life is to live from the heart and the key to finding unconditional love is to first unconditionally love yourself.  So spend time alone, reflect on life and the lessons and blessings that it brings, and most importantly do things for you and with you just because you know your worthy of it and because you enjoy your own company. Do this and watch your world completely transform.

About the writer

So yes, you've guessed it...I am in the process of getting divorced. Now surely I've had many challenges along the way, but I can honestly say that it has truly been the most eye opening experience of my life. Although it's never what you plan or hope for and it can be truly devastating when you realize it's happening, but it can also have a silver lining if you look for it...once you get through the guilt, anger, self-loathing, several pints of Haagen Dazs and a crate or two of wine of course. My divorce not only got me out of a very unhealthy relationship, but it also opened the door for me to reshape my entire life. So after a year of loafing, I am getting my ass off my couch and into gear to transform everything that I know has not been doing me any justice in my life. I went from trying to be the perfect daughter to trying to be the perfect wife, constantly accepting that which was imposed on me and living my life on auto pilot. Well, all that is about to change. 2012 is finally over and the new year is here, and this will be the year that I change my life and make it what I want it to be. This blog will document my experiences and hopefully help other men and women in the same boat to find some sort of inspiration. I would also like to hear from those of you who have some tips, advice or inspiring stories of your own to share. For many of us, just knowing that there are others who have lived to tell their stories with somewhat of a happy ending, is inspiration enough. Happy New Year!!!
