Like most years, the past 12 months have certainly been ones of change, struggle and blessing for all, with many people saying that the world and it's changes seem to be pushing us along at a breakneck speed....I certainly did find that to be true this year!
There were 2 big events in my life last year that pushed me to grow, change and love more! I met the beautiful woman that my son has chosen to share his life with and fell in love with her quickly. The sparkle in her eyes, the warmth in her smile and the joy I see in my son's face... what more could a mum want?
The 2nd being the opening of my new clinic space in Abbotsford, which isn't as big an event as were the changes it forced me to make from within.
I've found this past year that in allowing myself to go with the flow of events and opportunities that life presented me with, (which by no means is an easy task) and giving up the need to know all details in advance, that's right....just trust ...life and it's many gifts have flowed more easily and effortlessly. That's not to say that it isn't a struggle to just let go and move with the flow, it really is, but I'm finding it easier and easier as I see results coming quickly and in much better ways than I even imagined. Sounds like something out of a self-help manual, I know...I've read so many of them and have finally, after many years, come to the experience of just allowing the flow of good and allowing myself to be surprised by results.
In that allowing I've also experienced drawing new and different people into my life. People who match more closely that new path that my life appears to be flowing along. It's been fascinating to share with and learn from them and to have made some amazing new friends.
Things surfaced this past year that forced me to look at what was working in my life and equally, what was holding me back. What was I struggling to "make" work, what experiences were sucking away at my energy...and what I had to take the difficult steps to just let go of. I'm not sure. but I think that letting go of things/people/problems/events is harder than trusting the flow, to trust that if it is meant to be then it will stay or flow back into your life and if not...well, the white flag of surrender goes up.
This past week I've seen quite a few articles, pictures and conversations happening around New Years Resolutions and promises...I don't tend to make them and after the year I've just had I think life brings you greater blessings when you resolve to be the wonderful person that you currently are and grow from there, when you trust that things will get better and then allow life to lead you down that path of wonder (even though it may not be the path you had chosen), when you trust, when you let go, when you open yourself to receive.
Wishing you a wonderful and healthy 2014 filled with energy, peace, joy, surprises, openings and blessings!
At a soon to be announced upcoming Open House, many will have the opportunity to see what wonderful holistically healthy life choices are going to be coming available at the Abbotsford clinic!
