We can all do our bit to bring about love and change in our world, and it starts with you and me. It does not matter how big or small your contribution might seem to you, the truth is – there is no such thing as only being able to give a little; because a little to one person could mean the world to another and this little could change the trajectory of their life forever. Do not hold back on sharing love, kindness, compassion and empathy to those around you.
Everyone is here for a season. The sad truth is that so many of us spend a lifetime trying to understand our purpose and/or destiny here on earth, that we do nothing. Does it truly matter if you have a definitive purpose or not? What about just being here to experience this greatness called life? Why not be here to help others enjoy life with you. Living life is not always easy. It has it challenges. For you it might be calculus, for others it might be putting bread on the table for their families. It matters not what it is, it matters that we help others where we can. I know I can help others find the truth of who they are and to find the resilience to make the changes they need to make, to be able to live the lives they want to live.
Guilt, shame, fear, depression, anxiety – these are emotions that ran my life for decades. I found it very hard to leave the past behind me because I was stuck emotionally in the past. Anger, shame, guilt, depression, a longing for the way things once were – they anchored me in what once was. I had to be brave, stand tall, find my way in the darkness until I came to a passage that showed me the best way forward for me. This passage is at the center of my being. I follow this passage, one step at a time, and I continue to do so. I cannot wait until I have some epiphany before I help others; I help others from the place where I am at today. And we can all do this. Be kind and gentle towards yourself always. Forgive yourself for past failures and disappointments. Let peace fill your life. Find the truth you seek right within you, and then see yourself having a life full of love, joy, happiness and loving relationships. If I can do it, so can you.
loving you workshop
A few years back I had the opportunity to have my first Loving You Workshop. It was beyond what I could imagine. Seeing these young ladies open up about their lives and some hardships they face was truly an eye-opener for me. There are people and communities around you that need your help today. Since this workshop I have been working on new material, going deeper in content and practice and am preparing to launch more workshops (online and in person) in September 2021. What I have learnt is that you can never underestimate just how much you can do to help others. Not for yourself, but for the people you serve. Bring love and joy wherever you go and always leave people better off than when you met.
