People usually don’t believe me when I tell them that I have not been the most positive person in the world—or even the person that they know now. It wasn’t until I hit rock bottom in my early twenties that my life began to shift toward a positive trajectory when I made the conscious decision to evolve into who I am today. In Ep. 5: Self-Discover at Rock Bottom, I share the story that led up to my personal transformation—a story that had me question my existence and put me on a journey in search for meaning and purpose.
For most of my life (pre-rock-bottom), I had lived on auto-pilot, numbing myself with external substances and distracting myself with mindless activities and unnecessary drama. It wasn’t until I realized how much my actions were leading me down a path towards a life that I did not want to live that I made the conscious decision to be better. As my life teachers and spiritual mentors, Oprah and Dr. Mya Angelou, would say, “When you know better, do better.”
With the love of my sister, I learned how to sit and be at rock bottom until l was able to rise out of the darkness and into the light where I discovered my-true-self waiting for me. Though the journey of self-discovery is never over, I have not found myself at rock bottom since. Instead I learned how to nurture myself, how to cultivate my intuition and how to be empathetic towards others and their personal journey. The intention of episode 5 is to share with you my personal story so that you can see for yourself light awaiting your arrival at the end of the tunnel. Even at rock-bottom, there is a way out.
As always, thank you for all the love and support. It’s been cool hearing the feedback from all ya’ll. We’re only in episode 5, which means there will be a lot of growth and podcast-discovery that will continue to happen. I’m grateful for all of you joining me on this journey—and those of you who have allowed me into your hearts and minds. Enjoy Episode 5, ya’ll.
