Welcome to ‘Seeds Of Self’ – a website that encourages… Self-Expression – Growth – Gratitude
“There are two motivating forces in life – Fear & Love. When we are in Fear, we pull back from life. When we are in Love, we open to all of what life has to offer with passion, excitement and acceptance… We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and imperfections… If we cannot love ourselves we cannot fully open our ability to love others.”
― John Lennon
We all have an innate calling and deep sense of purpose that continually stirs within, yet through life’s undeniable challenges and transitions our inner guidance can become deeply confused, often causing our paths to become a little compromised at times.
And, we are forever evolving..
Through Loss – We Gain!
At the age of 21, in the midst of battling a heart wrenching illness of my own, my father lost his battle with an aggressive type of Bowel Cancer. It was an incredibly numbing and somewhat disorienting experience and yet only a few short years later my mum was diagnosed with Breast Cancer, which ultimately took her away from us also.
We were left shattered and deeply broken as a family…
Over time however; I’ve realised that my loss has ultimately been my gain.
You see.. I, like you am on a mystifying journey which coincidentally is called ‘Life’.. and every day it provides me with a new sense of Love .. a new Fear (not cool), a new Lesson, a new Memory and many new Opportunities to grow, create, discover and share a little more of who I am.
…Seeds Of Self…
Inspired by a journal I once kept titled “Seeds of Survival” when I was recovering from my illness, “Seeds Of Self” encourages self-expression, gratitude and growth. It is the platform I have chosen to share my story, my experiences and knowledge with others.
S–E–L–F represents ‘Soul – Essence – Love – Fear’ … a few major components that make us who we truly are..
Soul.. There is nothing more irresistible than a person who ‘Embodies Soul’ (read more here)
Essence.. Defines our true substance, our inner nature and true identity.
Love.. Love, in its purest form is the reason for existence… It is actually impossible to experience too much love in one lifetime.
Fear.. Holds us back and is the one thing that has us pushing love away..
Overcoming our fears is the one thing we all must do.. (read more here)
…Unravelling It All…
For me… If I’m able to guide, inspire or lift just one other Soul through my writings and experiences then I’m fulfilling my purpose, my inner calling, little by little, one voice, one thought piece at a time.
“One voice can change a room, and if one voice can change a room, then it can change a city, and if it can change a city, it can change a state, and if it can change a state, it can change a nation, and if it can change a nation, it can change the world. Your voice can change the world.” – Barak Obama
I also encourage you to reach out, connect and share your story here..
