I’ve just crawled out of a vortex where I’ve been navigating treacherous terrain. And every time I made an attempt to escape I was sucked back down and the vortex swallowed me whole. That is…until I cracked the code.
Does this sound crazy? Maybe. And it has been. But I assure you, I managed to escape. Albeit, a little worse for wear. But hey, what doesn’t kill you…
In fact, I feel invigorated. Things are heading instinctively in the right direction and if you’re feeling the same way right now then you know exactly what I mean.
Life is crazy. It really is. But I’ve finally cracked the code to life! No, really I have. It’s no secret and there isn’t a code…That’s the secret!
I have no idea why it took me so long to realise. I’ve been searching for that elusive key for what feels like an eternity. But what I’ve discovered is that life is about being who you truly are at your deepest core. By that I mean, really looking long and hard at yourself, stripping away the layers and going beyond the ego to really come face-to-face with yourself — minus the nagging doubt and a past that you haven’t managed to leave behind…
It’s not easy. In fact, it’s rather terrifying. You see, I thought my world was crashing down around me only to realise that it wasn’t changing…I was.
Over the past six months, I’ve met some random people with different perspectives who could see things in me that I had either forgotten, or refused to acknowledge. There’s an objectivity that comes from the point of view of a complete stranger and it’s woken me up to the reality of, well, being me.
It’s my birthday today — hence the smile! I don’t normally celebrate it so wholeheartedly, but I feel like a phoenix rising from the ashes. I’m in a brand new skin and it fits the way I always imagined it would.
