Whether you are young or old, man or woman, no matter your race or ethnicity, no matter your background, no matter where you live, rich or poor, no matter your height, weight, eye color, shoe size….. well you get the point… EVERYBODY… and I mean EVERYBODY needs to be practicing personal development on some level every single day.
But some people may say “I wish I knew this when I was younger”…. Well guess what? You know it now….And one day you will be 5, 10, 20 years OLDER and saying “I wish I would have started earlier….” I am sure you have heard the Buddhist Proverb “When the student is ready, the master appears.”.. and there is NOTHING truer than that statement.. Also if you are not learning, you are not growing. And believe me when I say HAPPY people NEVER stop growing… Successful people NEVER stop growing…. and anyone looking to better their life NEVER stops growing… SO, if you feel “stuck”, or feel like your life is in a rut, maybe it is time to take inventory and change some of the things that are NOT working for you, and incorporate some things that will improve your life.
Me personally, I did not start my spiritual journey until I was about 34 years. Although I have felt a spiritual connection since I was a little girl, all of my energy was extremely misguided, which put me in many horrible situations. Now looking back on my life, I see where all the pain, all the hurt and all the devastation were actually the very things that led me to that point.. And it all started with a book. Which led me to a phone call, which led me to a person, which led me to a practice which led me to a NEW LIFE…. My early life was not an easy or pleasant life, but it was worth it. I now live in a constant state of peace, harmony and love.. And although I do still have my ‘slips”, the good most definitely outweighs the bad at any given time. Love ALWAYS prevails.. And I LOVE sharing the things that have helped turn my life around. I love sharing all that inspires me and awakens my inner being.
