When I first starting thinking that I would blog, I had many ideas of what to talk about. During my studies, I’ll come across things I read, and think that they would be great to blog about. And now I sit here quite inhibited – not sure where to start. So, I think, to start I will welcome you – to me. The last eight years have been an intense journey. I have discovered and learned so much about myself. To the point that I really ponder who I was back in the 80’s and even 90’s.

Yes, of course I’ve been on my journey my entire life. And of course I’ve been learning, growing, and discovering all along. I believe that what makes the last eight years different is the degree of awareness that I engage now. The awareness of my impact on our Earth, on family and friends, to strangers, and to each moment of life.

I fell that I am realizing the value of everything in life. I remember a span of time that I just rushed. I rushed to work, I rushed to go home, I rushed to find the next boyfriend, I was in such a hurry. Until I finally realized what I was doing. I was not in a rush to get to work, or home – rather I was in such a hurry to get away from where I was at that time in my life. Of course hind sight is always so clear, but gosh if I could do it over…

I was at a pretty lonely place in my life back then, not realizing that I didn’t need to find someone to fill that loneliness (which is what I desperately was trying to do). I needed to become friends with myself. To actually enjoy just being. I acknowledge my blessings, and am grateful to the Universe for forever being there with me. Guiding me, gently prodding me, and patiently helping me along. Bringing me to the people and resources who have helped me grow, learn, discover, and enjoy my journey.

I wish you many blessings and discoveries on your journey.

Namaste, Xina
