There are no words to describe the level of peace I now have in my life.
After years of believing I had to struggle in order to be worthy, I’m so glad I’ve let go of that struggle and chosen peace. I still fight for the things I believe in, but it now comes from a place of passion, more so than struggle.
Today I got to share my passion with three fabulous women. I wasn’t coaching or teaching them per se. Simply sharing.
Sharing what I know, and believe, and feel, and what is real for me.
And from each of these ladies I understood one thing – Shared experiences matter.
Knowing someone has been where you are now and seeing them now in a happier, healthier place in their life, is not only inspirational, but also transformational in itself.
So often what is missing is presence, and in that presence it’s the shift in perception that can make all the difference. Shared experiences can not only make us more present to how we truly feel and think, but also give us the chance to see things from a different perspective.
When you share an experience with someone who has also once been in a similar situation, the level of connection, awareness, and light it can bring into your life is immeasurable.
Books and courses are great, of course, but a personal connection with someone who is living their life in a similar way you desire to live yours, is the most effective way to grow and learn.
One thing I value about my husband and the Emirati culture is the emphasis on respecting the older generation and a willingness to learn from them.
This kind of relationship with elders dissolves for many of us when we seek independence and opportunities outside of the family and environment in which we were born into, or because we don’t find someone who’s life we feel resonates with the desires we hold for our own.
We are then left searching for someone to model and learn from.
Confusion ensues when you’re not sure which way to look or try to model the ideals of too many other people’s lives.
We seek guidance through information and “how-to” guidelines, and while this is a beautiful compliment to learning directly from people we aspire to be like, it cannot replace the power of passing down stories and shared experiences.
I’m committed to being an example in my life, for those on the path to peace.
The path of living a life filled with fun and freedom.
An example for those called to lead in someway, soulfully, but lost in the how-to’s, must-do’s, and have-to’s. Because I’ve been there.
That’s why I’m doing something I’ve never done before and opening up my doors for a special group of women. Those who want to learn from me and learn from being AROUND me, immersed in my energy and daily life, and what I do to stay on the path.
While some people will continue to simply enjoy my posts and be inspired by them, most people know how valuable the direct experience of spending time with me, and seeing how I live my day-to-day life on this path, truly is.
