Entering Into a New Life

I tend to have great periods of time where I am active here and then long periods where I lie dormant. Writing has always been the method in which it is easiest for me to portray my inner thoughts and feelings. Over the last couple of years I have gone through so much change that my mind could barely keep up. I have been wanting to write but when I would sit down to start typing one thought would turn to another and I was left with a big jumbled mess. I decided I needed to rebrand myself here. So, I archived most of my older posts and decided to start new. I began with designing my logo:

I truly hope you all love it as much as I do, and if you don’t I will still continue to love it. I decided to title this first post Entering Into a New Life because that is exactly what I am doing. I have been setting healthier boundaries in every aspect of my life. Work included. By doing this I have lost so much, especially with my business. It is on the dying end and as much as that scares me to death, I am ok with it. I have been ushered into a space where I can continue to do the same things and expecting a different result (definition of insanity) or I can be brave and do things completely differently. Shake things up and live the way I am called to.

These new ways of being have me challenging myself to truly know who I am. Asking questions like “when I look at my life, how do I envision it? What am I doing? What are my beliefs? What is my purpose/my calling?” A lot of these questions have been making me realize that I have spent so much of my life molding to other peoples views of what my life should be and look like. What I felt they wanted me to be. I tried to fit my enormity into a box that it just would never fit into. because of this I lost sight of myself. What my true desires are. My main question lately is: What do I want? Such a simple question that has me on a journaling journey to discover just that. Every time I connect to my cards or the Divine to ask for guidance I get two answers. Do what I truly love, what makes me feel alive. And the second is to take care of myself the way I take care of those I love. This is what I am starting on.

One big lesson I am learning is to say no. No when I am feeling low on energy, feeling drained. No when I really don’t want to do something but I am because I feel pressured to. Saying no to work when I am having a day where I can’t give even half of what I have left in me. This one new boundary is always losing me some things, but on the flip I feel alive today. I feel like that numbness I have had over the past few months is going away. I feel more rested and alert. I can sit and write/create with ease. I feel blocks starting to lift and I feel life being restored.

I don’t know what the future holds for me but I am sitting tall and proud in who I am and I am taking huge leaps of faith as I learn to truly trust. Thank you for coming on this journey with me! More to come.

Always in Love and Light,

Anna Marie
