The Goddess Within

Embrace your journey. Hold space in your heart for those who have loved you along the way. Let the love and happiness within you shine out of your very being and always remember the Goddess within you. Have faith in what will be.

She sat there on the clifftop
Reflecting upon her life
Thinking how very far she had come
Always a mother but no longer a wife

She didn't like judgement or labels 
She preferred to see people as they are
Allowing everyone to be themselves
Using her intuition as her guiding star

She believed there were no accidents in life
Everything happened for a reason
Everyone who crossed your path
Was in your life forever or maybe just a season

She knew what it was like to love
And was intensely loved in return
But sometimes it's not forever
And that can be a hard lesson to learn

Her journey was fraught with challenges
She endured sadness, loss, hurt and pain
But she pulled herself out of the rubble
Her strength and fearlessness she gained

She no longer worried what others thought
Living life to the beat of her own drum
So liberating and freeing
Her passion rising daily like the sun

She didn't need anything or anyone
She was whole on her own
She chose who she wanted in her life
She didn't fear being alone

Her past was her greatest teacher
Her future she was ready to embrace
Always willing to grow and evolve
Happy to run her own race

She forgave herself and others
Only wanting love within her heart
She opened up to the universe
Ready for another exciting start

She chose to be herself
Each and every day
She chose to love her life
In every single way

Everything felt exaggerated
Everything felt so fresh and new
The sun so warm upon her face
The grass glistening with dew

She saw so much beauty everywhere
Like a child seeing things for the first time
The ocean in its vast glory
A majestic tree in its prime

She felt like she had magic within her
Like she was finally awake
She had been given an incredible gift
Now her blessings were there to take

In the stillness of her meditations
She felt such calm and peace
She knew exactly what she wanted
Anything no longer serving her, she released

She could feel the energy within her
Her gratitude so high
She knew she could help others
She finally understood her "why"

She was reminded of her inner beauty
She was a butterfly with newly formed wings
She was ready to discover her world
Finding the Goddess within

After a long marriage, 2 children (now grown), a separation and embarking on a brand new life, I have realised life is always a journey. I have made mistakes, I have hurt and been hurt, I have loved and I have lost and at times I completely lost myself and forgot the Queen that I am. As women we are the nurturer, the caregiver but sometimes we underestimate the Goddess within us and my journey has made me realise that when our crown is crooked, we need to adjust it ourselves and remember the Queens that we are! This will be a blog about what I have learnt, what I am continuing to learn and how we can help each other. I will talk about all things love and life and at times this will be controversial but life and love is never black and white but varying shades of grey. We live in a judgemental society and so many of us live our lives according to the expectations of others, rather than doing or being what truly makes us happy. I hope you join me on my journey and on my quest to find that Inner Goddess and we can learn from each other and we can discuss the judgements and societal expectations that hold so many of us back. It's time to seek our inner happiness!!
