Self Revelation - My Eat Pray Love Journey
Are you struggling to find out who you really are? Tired of just living life according to the way others do it? Read this article on Self Revelation.
A few years ago I could not answer the question “Who Are You?”. Mainly because I was confused about who I was. I knew who everyone wanted me to be, everyone except for God. After many years of healing and self-discovery I finally know who I am. But before I tell you I would like to share a little about my current journey.
I started my blog three years ago. It was meant to accompany the services I was providing under my non-profit ministry Women Walking in Freedom. I wanted to have a venue to share inspirational words with the people who followed the ministry. In November 2009 I lost my blog when the hosting company we were using went out of business with no notice. One day our sites were up and the next they weren’t. The sad thing is that I lost all of my posts. I did not have a back up of the blog. I also lost my other business websites as well.
In March 2008 I accepted a position as a Project Manager on a major government contract. On December 11, 2009 I woke up excited and empowered about implementing some new plans to improve the performance of the department I managed. Things had been difficult at work and I was working hard to move things in a positive direction. I had a meeting with my team at 1:00 pm to discuss the plan. The meeting was successful, they were enthusiastic about the new plans and I felt good about the next steps.
The Brick They Threw
Later the same day I received a notice about a mandatory meeting at 3:00 pm with the Director. I used to dread those meeting notices because we never knew if we were going to be praised or get more bad news about the center’s performance. There were about twelve people who were scheduled to attend the meeting, which included another manager and some members of our teams.
We were told that we were being laid off. After our staff was given their notices, the other manager and I were told that we were being given a severance package in lieu of notice and that day would be our last day. What a blow! I did not know whether to be excited, sad, or angry. I was stunned because I did not expect this.
That was over six months ago. It was a challenge because I only received enough unemployment to cover my rent. But God provided and I was able to cover all of my living expenses for the past six months. The lay off was a blessing. It took me out of a job that was not fulfilling, that was stressing me out and took all of my time. It paid the bills very well but it did nothing to fulfill my sense of purpose or enhance my life or the lives of my children.
After the lay off I started rebuilding my websites and my business. I am excited about the direction things are taking now. I discovered life coaching, enrolled in a course and received my certificate last month. I now have my own life coach and launched my own life coaching practice. I have narrowed the focus of my business to self-development and publication design. I am focusing on my writing, which is my life dream and passion. I am completely fulfilled and happy. I am at peace and love what I am doing now. The stress is gone and I have plenty of time to spend with my children and doing the things I love.
Who I Am
So now I will tell you who I am.
- I am like the inner most
- Ticking of a clock
- My wheels are always moving
- Turning things around
- Making things happen
- I am a well of abundance
- Bursting with goodies to share
- I am a life giver
- Not just physically
- But spiritually
Now tell me who are you? Take some time to discover your self, what you like, what you don’t. What makes you tick? When are you at your best? I would love for you to share here. Use this as an opportunity.
Peace and Prosperity!
