Let Go With Grace

I attended a meditative writing workshop a few years ago, and this is what I wrote. It was a small gathering of people where we began to listen to a guided meditation and we would have ten minutes to transfer our thoughts onto our journals. This was actually from five years ago, but I just came across this piece paper the other day. Our starting line for that night was “As I stepped onto the path…” Although I have slightly revised it a bit.

As I stepped onto the path I take a look back and see how far I’ve come and everything that has happened to me, the good, the bad, and the “not so pretty” times, I realized that everything happened for a reason. I learn just how grateful I am for everything. I remember my challenges that gave me the strength to conquer all that I need to in my journey. I trust the universe.

As I stepped onto the path, I I let go of fear of would, or will happen to me. Overthinking at its finest. I let go of the past for it has shaped me into who I am and who I am meant to be. I let go of all that no longer serves me or sparks joy. I let it all go. I let go with grace.

As I stepped onto the path I am lighter. I am free. I release all judgement from others, but more importantly from myself. I welcome joy and allow myself to do things that adds happiness. I become mindful and don’t fret about the past or the future. I stay present.

I keep on moving and welcome great things. As I step onto the path, I can invite new opportunities to better myself.

I no longer let other people judge me or belittle me. I am only trying my best. As I step on the path I know I can do anything I set my mind to. If something goes wrong, or if I stumble, I make it part of my dance and keep on travelling. I let go of what no longer serves me. I listen to the music in my heart, and keep on striving for many adventures on the horizon. As I step on the path, I let go with grace.

Why I Started Blogging?

Five years ago, I worked at a fast food restaurant, and I had the best co-workers. They were always so nice and understanding. I loved that we all got along well. It made the shifts go by much faster. I would always be the happy-go-lucky person. I was happy to be there because it meant that I got to work with amazing people.

I would always send them my positive energy to them. I can tell some days they needed an extra boost of positive vibes. I was reading a lot of self help books at the time, because I felt like there was a void in my life. I was going through a transitional period at that time. My mama and I moved out of my childhood house and I was starting a new job. I was looking for a way for a new way to better myself. I wanted to feel more happier about the whole situation. After reading a few of those books, you can say I became the positive guru.

During that time I went to my friend’s mom’s writing workshop. At the end of the workshop we were encouraged to share our piece, if we wanted to. I loved sharing my words with others. I had rediscovered my passion for writing.

I would encourage my co-workers that we all should drink water with lemons or cucumbers since they provided many health benefits. I loved bringing in my water bottles with lemon and cucumbers. I had this water bottle that said “Don’t wish for it, work for it.” They ended up following my trend. It made me feel that my words and thoughts had a positive impact on others.

“Don’t wish for it, work for it.”

I had these daily affirmation cards and I would bring them into work and we would talk about it lots. I always brought positive vibes with me wherever I went, because you never know who needs it the most.

One day, I casually said I should start a blog. I had some of my self help books authors started with a blog so I had become inspired by their beginnings. All of my co-workers said that I should totally do that, since they can see me doing that because I am always a positive person.

My first blog posts were about the writings from the workshops. I later built on to some other topics about how to better yourself, how to be a positive person and how to reach your goals. Whenever I blogged about anything, I felt like I was doing something amazing. I was spreading positive vibes to others, and helping people believe in themselves.

I am so thankful for the people I have worked with and met on the way. My co-workers were always so nice to me. They threw me a surprise birthday party. They always believed in me. I am happy that I am still in touch with them, five years later.

For all of my fellow follower, how did you start blogging and why? I would love to read the reasons in the comments. 🙂
