This past week has been full of love and excitement. I have felt so uplifted and supported in everything I’m doing, and it feels great to spread positivity and light to those around me. My Calendar Challenge has brought so much spontaneous energy into my days and it’s really inspiring to see people be engaged and encouraged by something I have created. I have had a really good feeling about this year, 2018, and already I can tell that magical and mystical things are taking place in my life. I know that things are changing just by observing my approach to my spirit and other spirits around me. I am beginning to see things differently, and my feelings and thoughts about particular circumstances have evolved. I no longer feel the need to compromise myself for what “looks” better and I have no interest in forcing things that nature is not helping to grow. Nature is helping me to grow, and I am completely present in that process.

As you move through different stages in your life, you begin to understand more about time, and divine energy and losing and winning. Oprah once said that “There are no mistakes, because you have a supreme destiny. There is a calling in your life, a supreme destiny, and your job is to feel that, to hear that, to know that. Everything is leading to the same path. There are no wrong paths. Failure is just that thing trying to move you in another direction. So you get as much from your losses as you do from your victories.” I am understanding more and more everyday, the role I have in my success. It is just as much in my hands as it is in the hands of the world. My job as a human living is to go with the wind, drink the water, keep my feet on the earth, and fan the flames of the fire. I am whole. 

“Consistency is not perfection. It is simply refusing to give up.”

Life these past couple of weeks has felt like a mad dash to something ultimately more important. I keep reminding myself that everything I’m doing is pushing me further and further in the direction of my dreams, but I don’t always know if that’s the case. Some things feel like busy work, to please somebody else, or make a little cash, or to replace boredom with movement. My challenge to myself over the past week has been to be still long enough to hear God talk to me; to receive the answers to my questions, and it’s happening slowly. Slowly but surely.

I had the opportunity this week to spend time with other women who are facing similar challenges. I really gained, just mentally from listening to their experiences and stories. I look forward to continuing the conversation with them in coming weeks.

I have been finding healing less and less in other people and more in my individual practices that keep me motivated and prepared. I’m learning that everyone won’t always have the answers, and to lean on and depend on yourself as much as possible before running straight to others for guidance. How can we expect anyone to meet us where we are, if we have not met ourselves where we are?

“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.

This week has been consistent. It seemed as though time was moving with me. I appreciated that. I had a pretty relaxing week, for the most part. With the exception of my dad going into the hospital, for what was fortunately a FALSE Positive test result, my week was pretty smooth and went according to plan. I got multiple chances to spend quality time by myself and during that time much reflection about my life, and my wants and dreams took place. I was grateful to have a special place and time set aside to reflect effectively. This week, I spent time with someone new, I made a few new friends, and I did something I haven’t done in a while. I made things better where I felt they were already good and I explored my feelings as it related to a situation I have been holding in for a little while. I got some clarity through talking to good friends.

I am excited about the coming weeks. I have my first Sarahn Says event coming up next weekend, I began my research on Graduate School options this week, and I discussed business for multiple projects I have going on right now. I love life. If one thing could be better, it would be my back. I feel like I might have overdone yoga one evening and need to do a little “under-doing” for a few days. To a weekend full of excitement and a week full of evolution!

My goals for this upcoming week are to prepare fully mentally and physically for my event next weekend, sell some more tickets, of course, get my back feeling better and not waste anytime doing unimportant things!

This week was COLD! Literally more than figuratively. The weather in Philadelphia was as low as 11 degrees this week. It seems like Winter came right when it was suppose to…we are feeling it! But I must say I’m feeling warm and fuzzy in my little corner of the universe.

I really enjoyed the time I spent this week, just spending time with loved ones and having that good ole’ quality ME TIME I so desperately need. I got a massage this week, gave my nails, hair and body some TLC and spent NYE right where I belong…on my yoga mat in child’s pose, praying and thanking God for another year of life.

I debated going out but decided I was going to spend that ‘special’ moment by myself this time. It seems like the older I get, certain moments feel less special or unique. I’m realizing that your life moments are more defined by you than by others. Either way, I am super excited for 2018 and can’t wait to grow and blossom and evolve these next 12 months. I feel like this is just going to be a very special year of taking care of certain things…myself being the number one thing on that list.

This week I reflected on this past year. I worked on writing pieces for what seemed like hours, never at any moment getting tired, or bored. I took a bath, and talked to myself about everything that’s causing me some once of pain right now. It was so freeing. I found myself asking questions to imaginary people in my head, waiting for their imaginary answers and finding the answers on my own. Sometimes thats how life goes. You have to find the answers on your own.

This week ended with a snow day that kept me in house, filled my mind with sheets of cleanliness and reminded me that life needs to slow down sometimes so we can monitor our breathing and feel our heartbeats.

My goals for this next week include, reading and writing everyday, not complaining about the cold when I’m out in it, but instead just enjoying the beauty of nature, continuing to wake up early and getting to work right away, and replacing every negative thought in my head with a positive one.

This past week has been wonderfully full of understandings, smiles and tears. My holiday weekend was amazing. I was elated to share my space, time and energy with such magnificent humans. I am beyond blessed. I was in a lot of emotion pain one night this week, however. I had just finished the days of holiday festivities with my friends and family and some weird mix of unrequited love and domestic discomfort had me up all night. I knew if I could just fall asleep that the next day would be better, and I was right, it was. Things always get better when life’s not going so good, and sometimes they go worse when everything’s going great. That’s the waves of life and the ways of the world. But we have enough joy and life inside of us to stay appreciative of all new and good things.

For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning. – Psalm 30:5

I also had some really rewarding nights this week. I spent time with friends I haven’t seen in a while and got good laughs in that were the perfect dessert for my life right now. I did some reading and worked on my business, and connected with new potential collaborators. If I exercised any of the 3 principles on my list (structure, salubrity, & solitude) this week, it would be structure. I have a long ways to go to peel back the many layers of companionship. I have to be more international if I want to spend more time in solitude. It was also the holiday week and soon things will return back to the normalcy of routine and responsibility.

I feel like the days are going by so fast. There is so much I need to do, and so little time to do it. But, when I get up in the morning to pray, meditate and stretch I feel like time is still. I feel like I am exactly where I need to be and time is with me, keeping me warm.

 

My goals for this upcoming week are to stay positive, maintain low expectations of outside things and map out all the hours of my day so that I am spending them wisely!

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