Would I Change Anything?

If I knew then, what I know now
Would I have chosen a different path?
If I knew then, what I know now
Would I sit in a different aftermath?

If I could go back in time and change things
Would it be, a different outcome?
If I could go back in time and change things
Would I have lost or won?

If I hadn't taken a chance
Where would I be?
If I hadn't taken a chance
I would have been despondently, lost at sea

People spend their whole lives
Chained to what they know
Too scared to make a change
Will they stay, or will they go

I bravely jumped overboard
I didn't have a life line
I followed my heart and soul
What a rollercoaster of a time

I've embraced life upon a mountain
And I've been face down in the dirt
I've felt incredible love and joy
And sadness, loss and hurt

I broke through the wall of my comfort zone
Some people thought I was insane
But I decided to choose my life
And live the extraordinary, rather than the mundane

I have learnt and I have grown
I've also fucked up along the way
But I've finally found my purpose
And I live my best life everyday

So would I change my journey?
Nope, the universe had a plan
Everything happened for a reason
It's why I am the woman I am

I face my emotions head on
Be it joy, despair or pain
I've walked within my darkness
Nothing has been in vain

I've faced the hardest of lessons
Which I've gracefully accepted as a gift
I've been rewarded beautiful blessings
My life is no longer adrift 

I stumbled for a long time
But life happened as it was meant to be
It was the teacher and I the student
It forced my eyes open to see

I struggled through my hard days
Some a despairingly dark space
The love, the loss, the heartbreak
Everything conspired to bring me to this place

The road has been both beautiful and treacherous 
So many times I lost my way
But I'm here doing me
And I am grateful each and every day

I thank myself for having courage
I thank the universe for the role it played
I thank everyone who shared a part of my story
I wouldn't have this life, if I had of stayed

You're not in front, you're not behind
You're exactly where you're supposed to be
I wouldn't want to be anyone or anywhere else
I'm perfectly happy being me

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!!
