Message from the heart


 Tears streaming down my face, I place my hands over my heart.
 Emotions pouring out, I feel it deeply in my gut. 
 Overwhelmed, I hold and embrace all of myself. 
 Remembering that I am only human, with the right to fully experience. 
 There’s no need to hold back, let it all out, child. 
 Know that I am there, when you call out loud. 
 Now breathe. Breathe as if this is your last. 
 Take in another breath, as if this is your only chance to love. 
 Let the world see you, hear you, feel you. 
 With open arms, here I am, now and always. 
 Night and day cheering you on. 
 So don’t hold back, it’s time to come out.
 You are here to fill the world with boundless love.  

How I found purpose and live in alignment with who I really am

Without purpose in my life, I honestly don’t think I would be here today.

Purpose is what made me quit my high-income flight-attended job of ten years.

I was living the life of my childhood dream until it wasn’t. A shift inside me began to happen, and after ten fulfilling years as cabin crew, I decided it was time to follow my heart’s calling.

The “how” was unclear, and that scared the living daylight out of me. But my purpose helped me move from fear to courage.

Living in alignment with who you really are is truly liberating for the spirit. You wake up in the morning with a sense of purpose that supercharges your body. Ready to take on life’s challenges.

And yes, there will be days where you feel off, stuck, paralyzed by fear. So what then keeps us going? It is the remembrance of who you truly are.

I learn that purpose is about who you are, not about what you do. Because we could be doing a thousand things, yet none of it serves a purpose in our own lives.

It’s exhausting to live out of alignment with your truth. Pretending to be someone you are not. Saying yes when you actually mean no. We fear what others might think or say. We fear being judged. We fear the unknown.

Does doing what you do light a spark, a fire, a smile, a warmth, a tickle in you? Or does doing what you do feel weary, heavy, draggy and dreadful? Is your purpose in alignment with your truth?
