After some time away, something out there in the universe has have brought me back to this account. I created Mindfully Sarah (the original blog name) to be open and honest with myself in the hopes to keep myself going and pushing others to be the best version of themselves.
However, life happens and this year has been unexpectedly tough. I look back at old blog posts and am almost envious of the motivated, determined, headstrong, and mindful writer. To remember that writer was me makes me feel lost and depleted.
I’ve gotten stuck in excuses. I’ve allowed the real life shit slip through my fingers. I’ve lost contact with close friends, gained 40 pounds, lost all interest in physical activity, started binge eating again, and buried my emotions so far down I can’t separate one from the other.
Being 110% honest, I feel like I’ve lost my shine & sparkle.
I know that change will only happen when I decide to change my energy, my outlook, my vision of my future. My current situation is just LIFE. I don’t need to be ashamed. I got too caught up in my own limiting beliefs and habits formed around then and shit happened.
So here we are. And this is where the blog name change comes in.
My new blog name is: Embrace My Light
With the light comes shadows that we all have to face. There are times in our lives where we get stuck in the shadows. I’m have a choice to make: stay in the shadows or shine the light that is within me. I need to choose the light because if I don’t, I choose limiting beliefs, shame, seclusion, and negative thoughts. Embracing my light brings me peace, love, joy, and hope. It also brings me back to my quirky, whimsical, vulnerable, powerful, and confident authentic-self.
This process is not going to be easy. I am walking blindly into the unknown of what it means to embrace my light.
I want to show up. I want to trust the universe. I want to influence my future.
