It was not until I started to soul search that I stumbled across some wisdom that help me to see the world differently. It was only by seeing the world in this way that I was able to make sense of why certain things were happening. I began to understand that "the universe was shaking me up, to wake me up". Indeed I was in a deep emotional sleep and completely unaware that I was unaware of aspects of my own behaviour that was indeed creating some of the experiences I was going through.
Even though it was pretty challenging to take responsibility for the part I was playing in my life, it was one of the most liberating things I have ever done. As a result I am more in control, take responsibility and feeling much more connected to myself and to life. Therefore, I realise that these challenges were never meant to break me, they were meant to make me.
