The Journey Within
Get Excited & Stay Excited™! I have been doing a great deal of reading and soul searching here lately. Pretty much I have been taking a journey within myself and it has led me to have many “realizations” after dealing with internal turmoil for so many years. While I have not reached my destination, I have realized that I have to trust and accept that what God or the Universe has for me, is for me. I had to realize that there is a greater plan for my life. I had to realize that it is really time to begin my own journey of self-discovery. I need to connect with who I am now in this present so that I can embrace what I am experiencing and truly enjoy my life. In order to thrive and not just survive, I have to embrace my reality and learn to live a life of abundance.
As I was in deep thought, I picked up a book that I have been reading called “Walking With The WISE Entrepreneur” which is a collection of writings from many inspirational mentors and millionaires. One of the sections I read that inspired this message I’m sharing today was “Live The Life You Have Imagined” by Lynn Shepherd. Her section was very powerful and really made me examine myself and question myself if I was truly ready to live the life I have imagined. Here is an excerpt of what Lynn had to say:
The Journey Within
Wanting to do something and knowing how to do it are two very different things. To change my life, I realized I had to understand who I was now and how I wanted to live the rest of my life. I had spent a lifetime making a living and now I want to spend the rest of my life making a difference.
Shifting my perspective, I realized my entire life had been perfect. Every experience, good or bad, has created the person I am today. Don’t get me wrong, there are many lessons I would have preferred not to learn, but in hindsight, each one has contributed to my personal growth. I am a culmination of life experiences and this is my gift to share.
Becoming aware of my values and what I wanted, helped build the foundation on which all my decisions rested. Presented with choices, I immediately knew these choices would help or hinder my journey to living a life of abundance. This same process can be applied to the choices you make about your career, your relationships, your money or your health.
Are you ready to live the life you have imagined? I can tell you from personal experience, it is possible. This process will help guide you through whatever new chapter of life you might be experiencing.
Lynn was right with what she said. I do believe we have to know and BUILD the foundation where all of our choices are rested. If we do not have a solid foundation all that we do will crumble in life. We must have the courage to change, we must have the strength to become aware of who we are and make the choice to get up and do what is necessary to live the life we’re destined to live.
Taking The Journey Within
I know that my recent life experiences have made me realize that I hold all the cards and that if it is to be, it is up to me. I don’t know about you… but I chose to be successful, I chose to live a life full of happiness, wealth, prosperity and excellent health. I am ready to begin my journey within and truly discover who I am and HOW I am going to live the life I am meant to live. I must say I cannot wait to reach that destination… how about you?

To Starting Your Journey Within…
I suppose that this message was put on my path for me to find that I may share with you and myself of where I find myself right now. It is in the chaos of my life that this journey began…my journey within. I do know and realize that I have been following this road to find myself and who I really am, but it has been a slow process because I have been letting other people tell me who I am. Now, after the storm, I can see the path before now as clear as a blue sky, it has been coming through the books that I’m writing that someone is helping me on this inner journey (Helping Hand), God has been guiding me in His compassionate way to show me my inner self. As I look at the writing that I’m doing it is clues of who I am and what He is molding me to be, this relationship with God, this inner walk with Him of trust and love. I’m discovering my weakness and my strengths but more importantly I’m walking towards my destination, my eternal home.

Thank you for stopping by and making a contribution to this community. I do believe it works out that way– that things are put in/on our paths for a reason. You really sound as someone who has begun to connect with her inner self– her core. It’s a good feeling when you know your path, know your purpose in life.
Thanks again for your contribution, please browse around and let me know how I can be of service to you.

This is a great article Tresie. We should learn from our own experiences, whether it’s good or bad. In this way, we can correct things and make it the best out from it.
I hope your goals and dreams may come true. Good luck on your journey! Happy new year!
