I realize that what I really crave these days–and very, very hungrily–is quality alone time. It’s running time that I miss the most, actually.
“Did you ever wake up one day, shocked to realize that you no longer recognized who you were or the life you were living?
“That was me in 2013.”
The journey to dreaming, daring, and doing is never easy. In this August 2017 issue of Good Housekeeping, I dared to look back and tell the painful story of where it all began… and what I’ve learned from that journey. Am forever grateful to Good Housekeeping Philippines for giving me the space to share this. 🙂
Half the year is over! Here’s what worked and what didn’t work for me, as I strive for balance in a life that’s in full bloom 🙂
I had already come to accept that the answers were out of my hands, that God’s timing wasn’t my own. I knew that if I just surrendered, let go, and trusted fully in God’s plan for me, that everything would be revealed, clearly, and at the right time. All in His time…
I am not going to depend on anyone in order to live my life in the best, fullest, most amazing way that I can… but, I have to admit, I do want Someone to accompany me on that awesome adventure.
In answering the question, I asked myself not just what I ‘wanted’ (which actually means what is missing or not yet there in my life), and neither just what brought me ‘happiness’ or ‘contentment’ (which, to me, are still too abstract), but what made my heart skip, my cells dance, and my soul laugh out loud with JOY.
