I Found My Tribe!!!
Recently I’ve expressed the importance in & of finding your tribe. Life changes in the blink of an eye. One moment you are listening to a heart beat…the next moment it stops.
With this being the reality, it’s important for me to waste little time on or with life’s small battles when there is a real war going on.
Most would consider that I am referring to some political matter; much to do with the election, perhaps even a racially charge debate on the rise…
Things of this nature never draw my attention far.
I see this world through the lense of my spirit. It is the only way in which I can survive.
The war that I am referring to is the war within…regardless of the words we speak our actions are our real truths.
Going within. Doing the work. Looking in the mirror and seeing past what the eyes see and experiencing what is felt within is the true test of seeing selfworth.
So many believe they are healed….believe that they have all the answers…believe that their way is better than the highway.
A willingness to hear another perspective and extend grace is oftentimes rewarding and have been some of my most important lessons.
Being unable to hear the voice of wisdom and experience…leaves many unfortunately stuck and repeating destructive patterns. I see it through coaching and mentoring often. It can be gut wrenching and leave one drained.
More self care…
So as this chapter begins, I’ll dedicate more of my time to myself and my interests.
Now back to my tribe…
This 50 birthday was blessed. A few days of what has the best self care retreat ever.
Relaxation! Observation! Conversation!
With Like Minds…
I experienced a women’s retreat like never before. Just imagine entering a room full of beautifully scarred and gracefully healing women.
Imagine being the new one. The painfully shy one. The one who’s voice is seldom heard…rarely appreciated and often ignored.
The one who is unheard of…The Birthday Girl 😎
I Asked Big Though & He Answered!
During this time I had the pleasure of hearing so many truths and speaking so much truth to so many women. I also had the pleasure of my voice being heard…by others but more importantly by me. It’s life changing and certainly makes the heart smile.
I’m excited about the connections.
Thankful for another answered prayer and the opportunity for growth.
Thankful for acceptance and community.
What an absolutely blessed birthday it has been.
I’m excited about the future.
With that being said I am excited to share with you what I came home to on today. I have successfully grown peanuts. Last year I didn’t do so well. The reason was because I was impatient. Pulled them to soon.
Sometimes we just know a thing. We see or get a glimpse of what an end result might look like and we want it to soon. Or either we want to try and avoid it all together. Either way we suffer a loss.
So we must learn patience.
It can yield us our future.
It can surpass our past.
Peanuts are the 12th most valuable cash crop in the US.
Imagine: Investing in yourself. In your future. In the future of your offspring and leaving them a legacy…
And I’m not talking about The Money. I’m referring to a legacy of Divine Appointments…
On today, I embrace all of me…the good, the bad and the ugly.
Honoring the past helps you to appreciate the good memories and avoid the same pitfalls and mistakes in the future.
Release others and embrace yourself.
Release your past and embrace your future.
Accepting what was enables us to accept what is…
We all need time to grow and mature but we can’t stay in the ground forever…or we suffer.
Remember that and don’t forget to drink your water.
Blessings Abounding, Vetta
