Best Advice I Can Give You is to Take a Nap
I made a list of 20 things that had me falling into depression over the last few weeks.. For the first time in a long time, I let myself feel my anger. I let myself cry without holding back. I had to feel it all and face it all ..Then, I fell asleep. I was supposed to be meditating but my eyes closed, my head fell back, and I entered la-la land. When I woke up, I was kind of surprised by how rejuvenated and refreshed I felt.
This is going to sound crazy to those who don't know the power of giving yourself a break from everything, in order to reflect and refine, as Carissa would say... But I seriously heard the loudest whisper of a message from the Spirit in my dreams. It reminded me of my purpose and how CLOSE I am to achieving everything that I was put on this planet to do. I smiled and let out a huge sigh of relief as I realized that I went through all of this mess simply because I was supposed to. Nothing was an accident or in vain. This was my season of sewing seeds of wisdom into myself, for my upcoming harvest! I needed to learn from every single thing on that list of heartache, pain, loss, and regret so that when faced with what's to come in the near future, I will know exactly what to do and what NOT to do.
My struggle was designed for me and has been CONQUERED by me!
I'm sorry but the list itself is way too personal to share right now because it's not just about me. However, what I will share are some of the lessons that I learned after meditating (or resting my soul rather.. I was knocked out lol):
1. DONT PROCRASTINATE.
2. LISTEN TO YOUR INTUITION WHEN IT TELLS YOU TO DO SOMETHING.
3. DONT LET ANYONE GET THE BEST OF YOU.
4. CONTROL YOUR EMOTIONS. THINK ABOUT HOW YOU WILL FEEL ABOUT YOUR ACTIONS OR WORDS LATER. AVOID REGRETS. DONT REACT OR SPEAK OUT OF ANGER.
5. EVERY TIME SOMETHING FALLS APART, EXPECT A NEW GIFT FROM THE UNIVERSE. JUST WAIT ON IT AND GIVE THANKS IN ADVANCE.
My hope now is that I apply these lessons when I am supposed to and I pray that anyone reading this does the same too.
Loving and growing,
