I've had a lot of pseudo purposes.
When I was young, I was destined to be a veterinarian that rescued and cared for the souls without a voice.
When I was in high school, I wanted to be a world renowned singer that touched hearts and moved bodies.
When I was in college, I was certain I was going to be a journalist,
and a psychologist,
and a teacher,
and a nutritionist.
After college, I was called to be a yoga instructor; one that guided people back into their bodies, back into their power and sensuality.
Now, after becoming a mother and somehow incorporating a bit of each of my "when I grow up's"
I realize that the purpose of my time on Mother Earth is to share my truth,
To offer transparency and familiarity,
To make like a conductor in an orchestra,
Using experience and heart to passionately guide others to their inherent brilliance through a conglomeration of notes, harmonies, melodies, crescendos, cadence, and tempos.
To remind my fellow humans of their abilities, their unique music.
To believe so deeply and unwaveringly in them that they don't have an option but to believe in themselves,
To watch the mastery of their gifts unfold in an epic performance of art and soul.
To embody and spread the one thing that conquers all: love.
It is now, at nearly 28 years young, that I realize that all of those things, those titles that I wanted,
They were already mine in one way or another,
All of the qualities I admired in my mentors,
They were already inside of me,
I just needed to open the right door,
The one that said writer, poet, life coach, yoga instructor, mom, nontoxic living advocate, compassionate earthling.
And when I stepped through the threshold,
I entered the rest of my life.
I found the @tinydevotions White Jade Highest Potential Mala and nothing seemed more fitting than this collection of stones; reminding me that anything is possible, balancing my yin and yang energies, soaking up the positive I need and expelling the negative I don't in order to step into my power and my purpose, to fulfill my highest potential.
