In my time of my worst depression, I found it difficult to enjoy the important things in my life (even the little things). All I wanted to do was lock myself in a dark room and stay there until I could feel “whole again”, (whatever that meant).
I was focused on what I didn’t have nor achieved, instead of what I actually had and was blessed with in my life. I was too hung up on the past and to busy worrying about the future.
I’ve been on my spiritual quest for almost a year now. However, is not something I was completely introduce to rather reconnected.
Today, the idea that I can have the life I want is finally sinking in. I’ve always had a deeper connection to my inner self and desires but over the years I’ve let fears and doubts lead me to pursue safer paths. However, since being a believer in that everything happens for a reason, I believe that my experiences and achievements have not been mistakes, but rather detours to wherever I’m headed.

teaches and transforms us so we can grow and expand.”

Well, there’s nothing wrong in choosing a safer path, if what you have chosen is what your heart desires. You know you, and what lies in the bottom of your heart and be true to it.
At this moment, what lies in my heart is finding peace and contentment, and trying to live by the power of Now.
Tell me, what lies in your heart?
