"Everything You Seek is Seeking You - Rumi
By far my favorite quote. It has so much meaning and a far deeper message. I’m sure I’m not alone when I say that a few times life was kicking my ass! I mean I was in the choke hold and the chicken wing at the same damn time with me gasping for air not sure how or if I would make it out of that stronghold.
I have had my share of rock bottoms at times not knowing if I would ever see beyond that level or how to even begun to dig my way up to the surface. In the beginning, I had my life all planned out I’m sure many can relate to that. The plan was to marry my high school sweetheart, join the Air Force, runoff in excitement, buy the home with the white picket fence, have children, build my career in the military and live happily ever after.
Things didn’t quite work out that way. I was kicked out of high school my very last semester of 12th grade & was barred from attending and even being on any school property in my city and had to get permission to graduate with the rest of my graduating class. My relationship with my high school sweetheart turned abusive and toxic with many, many infidelities with major blows to my self esteem and self- worth unknowingly at the time leaving me subconsciously & mentally damaged and broken. Leading me on a repetitive cycle of physically and mentally abusive relationships all while struggling to learn how to love myself.
I was arrested a day after my 18th birthday which led me on a long road and even longer criminal record including years of bond hearings, police run-ins, magistrate appearances, jail sentences, and court cases eventually landing me in federal prison 700 miles away from home. I had always searched for things outside of myself and quite frankly didn't know where to begin to look to find a solution. Until I looked in the mirror and finally I decided this is NOT HOW MY LIFE WILL END!
I made the conscious decision to move past what was already done I couldn’t change those things. I was going to learn from those lessons, I was going to heal myself, and I was going to devote time and energy to what I needed. My children deserved better I deserved better. I was going to love & save MYSELF! I began to find anything that would aid me on my new journey and the more I sought things that would help me get on the right path and change my life the more those things would find me.
Things began to present themselves out of the blue it seemed, yet things weren’t easy in the beginning as I was attempting to unlearn things and and relearn things. But as I begin to apply these things and techniques that I was learning into my life I started to notice change a HUGE change. With every passing day, things were changing the place I started to find myself I could have never imagined in a million years.
I never thought I would find happiness and I never dreamed I would find compassion and love and that I would find these things within myself. I was so amazed and compelled I decided that I had to get this information out there for others who had been thru many ups and downs as I had and those people that were at that very moment searching for what was searching for them and those people that were finally saying ENOUGH!
