Inspiring Words

Inspiring WordsGuys, I’ve been down in the dumps lately, and I’m not one to bring up negative things right off the bat, especially on a Monday. But I wouldn’t be honest, or truthful to my blog if I wasn’t real with you. I’ve had a lot on my mind recently, I mean, every possible thing in my life I’ve been analyzing and trying to find the light in. I’m a happy person by nature, but I haven’t been my usual happy-go-lucky, carefree Diana I’m known for. And that’s okay, I’m not ashamed to admit it, it’s not always rainbows and butterflies.

There are times in our lives when we go through hardships and sadness, in order to be guided towards our true path of happiness and contentment. We wouldn’t be human, or grow as a person without it. But I will say that meditation has been my greatest savor. I’ve dug deeper within myself, to childhood memories, discovering and understanding feelings that affect me today {all thanks to the amazing and inspirational Gabrielle Bernstein – seriously pick up one of her books or listen to one of her videos}.

I’ve had to make some pretty big decisions over the past few months, some of which I didn’t choose with my heart or intuition – chosen because I felt I had to, secretly to please others. I know you’ve been there too…these choices have seriously shaken me to my core. I’ve chosen against my intuition, and I know some of you may be saying, you can’t base responsible decisions on “your gut”, but why not? Why live with a decision, say for a job, day in and day out, when it’s making you miserable and less of yourself the more you become invested with it. I was honestly putting myself, and my true desires on the back burner, thinking that’s what I had to do, wondering why I was given all these big decisions to make one right after the other. I mean talk about opportunities just coming into your life all at once, and not ones you necessarily wanted either.

I was beginning to settle, and that scared me more than anything! It wasn’t until I saw this quote on Gabrielle Bernstein’s Facebook that my heart warmed. I felt encouraged that I knew what I was doing all along. I shouldn’t have to choose the supposed logical choice because that’s what is expected by everyone else, when all it does is make me, miserable. The choices that I have made from happiness, love, or a creative and curious interest to explore, have been some of the most rewarding, and ones I’ve learned so much from.

I’ve woken up each morning with this quote in site, and the notion that I deserve to make choices that make me happy, or some sort of joy that will lead me towards my passion. If I keep making choices that excite me or stem from happiness, then how can they not bring even more of that positive light into my life again?

It’s important to stay open to the Universe and the path it has for us, and that is my goal each and everyday. It’s funny, all I needed were these inspiring words to lift my spirits and feel more positive about my current situation, and sure enough another chance came knocking the other day. I know this is a heavy post for a Monday, but I really missed writing, and this is the first time in a while that the words just flowed naturally from me. Yes, I aim to fill The Dreamery with delicious recipes and pretty inspirational ideas, but I also hope to encourage and uplift you all. Have a happy week!
