Last year, I said 2020 was going to be the year of “mass holistic expansion,” I didn’t realise it was going to be the year of vision as well. I didn’t think I would be so certain of what I needed to keep and let go in my life. This clarity came with strict instructions, and that confused me. It hinted that I should say goodbye to things I wasn’t ready to give up, but once I did more opportunities came my way.
I was always the person held tightly because if resistance to change was a person, it would be me. I clung on to things that weren’t existing anymore; I mainly held on to the idea of what it was in a previous lifetime. it all stemmed from my fear of thriving. I realised this was a reflex learned from growing up in the Caribbean. You shine once, and a thousand will be against you.
I had to be stripped of all things to realise I can exist without the crutches I kept close. When I had to let go forcefully, I was left with no excuse but to transcend to the next stage. Here, I decided failure was not an option; only lessons learned to keep growing.
I now trust my intuition deeply and foster each thought that enters my mind. If it has materialised in my subconscious, it was meant to be executed. I give because I am truly fulfilled when I put the needs of others above my own. I’m grateful for all the blessings; my business, Daraki Designs, where I create aromatherapy diffusers for masks, my writing. I have been commissioned to write a few pieces, my upcoming poetry book, and all other creative and academic ventures.
I’ve learned from the test I’ve been through; now I’m ready to apply the knowledge I have received to forge into the new year. After lots of meditation and cleansing, I decided that 2021 will be the year of alignment (with greatness).
