I started walking this path the day I was born, but it did not become a reality for me until 2005 and I don’t think it will ever end.
My belief in something greater than myself.. a Goddess, a God, a Creator.
This Creator of mine is not who/what my parents believed in, the schools or churches I went to as a child. This Creator is something/someone who was with me through all my own life experiences, the most recent since 2005. My Creator has brought me comfort and salvation through lessons and unconditional love. My Creator showed me, my own strength.
Until the day comes when we all hit our bottoms or begin searching for peace of mind, soul and body, the Creator awaits without judgement, arms wide open and guidance.
I found my Creator between the Wicca teachings and my native culture. I am fulfilled and humbly grateful.
Isn’t it a bitter sweet how we finally, “get it” by the time we are in our 50’s?
I know for myself to sit and count the lessons I have learnt in the past 55 years, I would need a calculator, because of the amount. Does anyone else feel that way?
Yet easy or tough as the lesson may have been, it did teach me something along the way. When I was younger in 20’s or 30’s, I did not think of the lesson at the time, but sat there and wondered what the heck was that all about? And at the time people tend to fall to the way side, which is okay, because not every one understands other peoples struggles or why we make choices we do. It is our own journey and the ones that do hang on till the end with us, are meant to be in our lives, coming and going during high and low points.
Now at 55 I feel I still have so much potential, so many ways to progress into more of the person I always wanted to be and I look forward to it.
I find I trust more, I am more open, I am more creative and not afraid to do things because of what someone else may think of it. That all comes with learning to be more assertive and that I don’t need the praises of all the people in my life.
What I do and plan on doing, I will do without harming anyone in my path, but see them as hopefully positive forces more than negative forces.
So no matter what our ages, all the power to natural evolution in becoming who you want to be and may the awakening that happens along your path, make this ride on planet earth, all it can be for YOU.
Youth is within us, in spirit! Now if only my body would get on board. 😉
