Life can be funny at times because it is unpredictable. You never know where the currents of life will take you on the journey. I have learned it is extremely important to be open about the transitions in life. When you are flexible to the flow of life you will see a different perspective. Recently, I spent a week in Paris which changed my whole life.
I went for a writing workshop to invest more in my writing skills and to enhance them. During the month of June I endured so many life altering things that I was discouraged about going to Paris. The trials and tribulations of life tried to stop me from accomplishing a dream I was pursuing—Paris. It was my dream to write and muse in the city of lights for years, so last year I did the research and made my dream a reality. It was so beautiful to see Paris up close and personal. The dream was no longer a fantasy but it became a real life event for me. I spent that week immersing myself in the beauty of the city and it changed my mental perspective.
When I was faced with the realism of coming back to the states I realized I have to visit Paris again. I was left with a feeling of gratitude because I truly did this for myself. I was grateful to have the opportunity to live my dream. However, I did not only want to live my dream I wanted my dream to change my life. And Paris not only changed my life but it changed my mind. As I sit here I realize my life is in a transition because of my decision to live my dream. Once I returned back home I decided to devote the next six months to making some changes in my life. I was confronted with the fact of no longer living in the mediocrity. Life is full of possibilities we just have to stay open for the alterations.
Transition is never comfortable because it challenges us to be out of our comfort zone. However, in my time of transition I will use it wisely to invest in myself. When you are in a transition you have to be postured in a position to be able to receive. I have made up my mind to get my life in order as I go through my personal transition. I understand now that in life you have to keep your heart, mind, soul and hands open in order to receive your blessings. Today, I open myself to the challenge of embracing the transitions of my life.
Do not fight change embrace it!
