I woke up today, thinking that today was the last day of winter! I mean we’re having a “snowstorm” in Philadelphia right now. But I learned sometime in the mid-afternoon that today, March 20th, is actually the first day of Spring. Which means that my Sacred Woman Winter has officially come to an end. I’ve made it through the dark windy nights of solitude, salubrity, and structure.  Reflecting on these past three months, I’ve realized, I lost complete intention on dedicating my winter to those 3 S’s. I did learn a lot however about myself, those around me, and where I am going in my life. The ultimate lesson, of course, is that no self-work is ever completely done and that seasons become raindrops in the waterfalls of our lives. 

I’m learning more and more everyday, my power as a woman, a friend, a teacher, a student. I’m becoming better at those roles as life forces me to experience myself in new unknown ways. This Sacred Woman Winter has been very much like a journal for me to express my thoughts and feelings about my growing process. But reflecting on THIS growing process, I am reminded that I am always returning to evolution. I am never stagnant, or stale. Never broken or burned. I am sometimes, a wilted flower, who needs just a little of mother nature’s elements to stand me back up right. I am, all the time, an imperfect human who is constantly reflecting and analyzing my life, to blossom brighter, and withstand stronger winds.

Nothing in my life has really stayed the same over the past 3 months. My mind is stronger, my heart beats louder, my back is straighter, and my hair withstands gravity now more than ever. And my spirit is more still than it’s ever been before, leaving hibernation for the spring.

“It’s time to step out on faith, I’ve gotta show my faith. It’s been illusive for so long, but freedom is mine today. I’ve gotta step out on faith, It’s time to show my faith.
Procrastination had me down but look what I have found, I found…Strength, courage, and wisdom, And it’s been inside of me all along. Strength, courage, and wisdom, Inside of me.”

Mmmmm. Everything in due time. Everything in due time.

This post is a few dates late, but everything is due time. That’s for life, period. Sometimes things don’t happen at the exact time we plan for them to, but they always happen on time. I am grateful for another week of life. I feel free in my journey through time and space. I am learning more about myself everyday.

This week I had my very first event for Sarahn Says. I will share more details in a separate journal entry. I wanted to create a space for myself, to just be still and open to life’s moments, and that is what my Sacred Woman Winter is about for me. Solitude, salubrity, and structure. Stillness and openness. I don’t want to have any obligation to myself other than following my word, giving myself what I know I need, and being love and light at all times. I’m understanding a very big part of growing and flourishing is allowance for what is and what is not. Understanding what is and is not in my control. Being true to my process and place on the journey to deeper self-love and self-knowledge.

This week for me was about doing just that. Learning new things about myself and flying to new heights as my view of myself and the world expands. And now that I am on the other side of consciousness, I can allow for wisdom to take front stage in my actions moving forward. I am extremely prepared to take on bigger roles, spend more time focus on my dreams, and spend more moments centered and at peace with myself and others. I am ready in every way to grow in all ways that the universe allows me to in this moment.

My goals for next week are to write down and be fully present with my steps moving forward for this season, this year and beyond. I want to take every opportunity for growth, big and small, and use all moments as a time for self-exploration, self-assurance, and self-reliance.

I AM A SACRED WOMAN. WATCH ME WIN. HEAR ME ROAR. SEE ME SOAR.
