Happy International Women’s Day!
What better day to start this blog than on International Women’s day!
According to the Oxford dictionary, serenity means “the state of being calm, peaceful, and untroubled.” That word speaks to my heart, as it is all that I desire.
I have longed questioned how to find serenity and how to stay in that state. My heart quivers as I write this. After years of searching, I realized that my heart knows the way! It kept guiding me, it kept giving me signs that I should be looking inwards instead of outwards. I’m sure you’ve heard about this all the time, I was the same. I remember a friend of mine kept reminding to search within myself, to listen to my inner voice and to work on myself. I rebelled. I could not trust that process as through out my life I only saw women finding their voice after finding their life partner or after getting married. In my immature mind, I thought that was way. That I will only find my voice once I am with someone and that I am married. Unfortunately, that’s what we are taught from society and social media.
But no! The answers to your questions are within you. You have everything you need inside of you; your soul, your body and your mind know all the answers you need. I agree sometimes we need others or external factors to help us. And that’s okay.
Be proud that you realize it. Took me years to get help, but it was so worth it. I made peace with my inner child, I do the work everyday. Some days are bad, some days are great. It’s all part of the journey. Patience is key!
What I pray for you on this day is to find the strength and courage to get curious about yourself, to find the community or help you need, to be patient with yourself and to find your power! And, find your voice.
May you proudly speak that voice!
And, may you find serenity!
I appreciate you taking the time to be part of my journey. Let me know what you are doing to find serenity.
