There was a time when I was living my entire life in ways that I thought I “should”. In ways that made others happy.
If I could make other’s happy, they would love me, and because they loved me, I would be happy.
I was looking for love from others in order to fill my own gas tank so that my engine could run. I lived like this (like a robot), until beyond my collage days, into the years that I had children of my own, until one day I realized that who I was on the outside was a complete and polished product of what and who I thought I should be, not who or what I really was. My life, my patterns, my “interests”, even the food I ate and the clothes I wore provided me with numbness. I wasn’t passionate about anything I was doing, and was very caught up in materialism, my social life, apprentices and money.
At that point in my life, I was obviously, half full. My Spirit; who I am on a soul level, my higher self, had completely left my body, or at least went deathly dormant somewhere along the path of my life.
Throughout the passages on this site, I refer to my Spirit as “Juniper“.
“When nobody else celebrates you, learn to celebrate yourself. When nobody else compliments you, then compliment yourself. It’s not up to other people to keep you encouraged. It’s up to you. Encouragement should come from the inside.”
– Joel Osteen
This blog encompasses the FUN tools, people, science, self discoveries, life lessons, knowledge, blessings and personal experiences that happily brought Juniper back into my life. A gift that I am eternally grateful for.
Time to turn inward:
- Are you living your life to the fullest, that is inline with your higher self?
- Do you feel half full, full, or overflowing?
- How could you bring more joy into your life?
- How do outward influences effect you and how you choose to live your life on a daily basis?
