For so many years I felt so out of control in my life. I felt like life was happening TO me and that was on the misfortunate end of the events that were taking place in my life. I felt like I was being batted around from pillar to post feeling more disempowered and more and more at mercy of the stormy seas of my emotions.
Then something extraordinary happened. I learned that actually I was more in control of my life than I consciously knew. That indeed I was the director of my life story and everything that I was experiencing (or indeed the way I was reacting to what I was experiencing) was happening FOR me. So I could grow, become more compassionate, loving and above all more in tune with who I really am and not what society says I should be.
So the stormy seas were really my friend. Bringing attention to the me that I could become. The more I started embracing these lessons as amazing teachers the more my heart opened and life became so very beautiful.
