We all have our own journey. It’s what we call life. We are born and we make our way through experiences of childhood, young adulthood, adulthood, and then the senior years. We make choices for what we hope will be the best for us. We sometimes even have the courage to take the road less traveled.
I always thought it was about the end game – being happy, having a happy family, having really nice material things, being healthy- just winning at life overall. I never knew as the song Amazing Grace says in one of the verses “I once was lost but now am found, was blind but now I see.”
No matter what stage of life you are in there could be what we call “an experience” that will happen to you that will give you the chance to look at life in a much different way than before. It could be a sickness of yourself or a loved one, an addiction, a divorce, death of a dear one, job loss, etc. Any number of things can help you stop and take another look at where you’ve been, where you are now, and where you want to go. This is what I call “My Awakening”. It’s when I woke up, looked at everything in my life, decided what needed to be changed, what I could live with and live without, and how I could experience life in a much different way. Not the rat race but experiencing the journey I was meant to have here now.
I invite you to join me as I share the journey of my awakening and the many things I’ve learned since that time in 2012.
