What a busy week! After the launch of my website, networking on Social Media, promoting my affiliate products, blogging and an endless list of tasks desperately needing my attention, I’m dead beat!
I just about managed to get to mid-afternoon on a very wet, cloudy Friday afternoon and decided, I need some ‘ME’ time!
So off went Facebook, Twitter, my laptop, Ipad, smart phone and everything else with a wifi connection. The only why I was interested in at this point, was in answer to some profound thoughts I’d been having recently about my life.
Like why am I here? What does being here mean to me? And does it match my purpose and bring joy and meaning to my life?
It felt good being home alone. The kids had left earlier for school and after lunch I sat out on the porch and looked forward to touching base with some inner calm, far away from the mayhem and madness that had been my working week.
Even though the rain seemed to be on some sort of relentless mission for most of the afternoon, I enjoyed hearing the sound of raindrops as they fell heavily on the ground. But the sound was different today. It felt like forever since I’d actually listened to the sound of the rain and enjoyed watching the white fluffy clouds of mist rise from the mountains range. It was enchanting and filled me with a piece of tranquility that I’ve not felt in a while.
Living in the rainforest began to hit home as I tuned in to the trees surrounding me and submerged myself in the seductive charm of the forest. Their ancient regal allure warmed me and though the rain hindered any physical connection, I could feel a much deeper one that reached far into my Soul. Even the aroma of it all seemed to captivate and awaken my Spirit.
Perfect, I thought to myself!
It was as though the questions that I’d pondered about life and its purpose were being answered in the very moment I was living it. Not in the chaotic, crazy, stressful, oh my goodness I need to get this project finished in an hour kind of living.
No! It dawned on me in the middle of the afternoon, amongst the trees, the birds and the bees. In the heart of a Caribbean rainforest, in a quaint little village that is my home. I am living my joy!
The bohemian rhapsodies of my Soul, were the serendipitous chapters of my life and yes, they spoke volumes! Of course I am where I want to be. I am perfectly aligned with the Universe and living my life on purpose.
My Love of Nature and Living in the Now
For as long as I can remember I was always awestruck by the wonders of the Earth. I loved flowers and taking long country walks when I lived in the U.K.
I would feel exhilarated by the moon, the stars and the quintessential beauty of nature. And here it is! Right in front of me. Buried in the depth of busy, demanding and frightfully intense but non-the-less, here in my very own backyard.
It was as though I’d found a diamond in the dirt that illuminated the entire forest and whispered secrets to my Soul.
I understood fully why I was here, in this place at this time. It was a place reserved just for me. The subtotal of every single one of my experiences had prepared and propelled me to this moment of NOW.
I was here because of the choices I made, the decisions to be brave and bold and have faith in a Divine co-existence that perfected every condition of my life.
I was here because the peaks and valleys, the ebb and flow, the pinnacle and pitfalls of life were all directing my journey to fulfil a greater purpose.
I thought about all the things I love and enjoy. The things I am passionate about that get me all jazzed up. They’re all wrapped up in my purpose and bring a deep sense of meaning to my life.
Like sitting on the porch blogging on this wet and wonderful Friday afternoon, speaks to my love of writing.
Working on my website and Social Media provides the perfect platform for me to unleash my raw, unadulterated and magical creative energy.
My profession as a Health and Life Coach affords me a great opportunity to help others to also live the life they desire, not from talking the talk but from someone who has walked the walk and continues walking to pastures new!
A graceful, bold and courageous walk to the highest plateau of inner joy that ignites my life’s purpose.. How more joyful could life be than living in the precious moment of NOW? It’s me doing me… just as long as I remember to take time out to smell the rain!
Have a beautiful day and an awesome life which I hope you live full of joy and on purpose! 🙂
