“Sometimes it takes everything falling apart, for it to all fall into place”
Good-glorious-afternoon my sweet sporty sisters!
This is a very special Thankful Thursday for me to write to you, because I’m able to release a trickle of gratitude from my endless reservoir of thankfulness.
I’m thankful for all that has been and all that is yet to come.
My arrival at a new realm of thankfulness was spurred on by an opportunity to begin a fresh and exciting new chapter of my life.
One that looks like harnessing all I have learned while working for such an incredible company and its extraordinary ethos, and setting sail beyond the cosy walls of LJ HQ.
My new venture forces me to take the biggest leap of faith in my life thus far.
But the way I look at this new endeavour is that I am beginning my voyage on the adventure of a lifetime. One that will be testing, challenging but oh-so fulfilling and satisfying. I know the journey will be inspired and manifested purely through LOVE.
This message was the very first quote I stuck to my Mac screen when I begun my journey as Move Nourish Believe Ambassador.
I’ve come to understand that the words of Maya Angelou resound so deeply within my spirit because my life is and has never been about me. It’s not about bringing glory and honour to myself, nor is it about transforming myself into greatness in the ways the world deems as successful, beautiful or esteemed (how boring and empty if it was?). Instead, I have realised my life was given to me to roam this earth as one who loves greatly and selflessly to all those who I meet.
Being one who lives by faith, my belief system, morals and pursuits are foundational on this most important gift of all – LOVE. This has been my driving motivation for all that I have written and taken part in at Lorna Jane and beyond.
Not knowing what exactly this next wonderful chapter looks like is what exhilarates me most. It is what stirs such thankfulness in my innermost being because for once, it’s not about taking on this life in my own strength and it is certainly not about trying to figure it all out (I’ve wasted far too much energy on that already). I’m taking this opportunity as a time to be strong enough to rely completely on faith; believing that what’s coming is far greater than anything I leave behind, even if I can’t see it yet.
With that knowledge comes such freedom, liberation, and surprisingly, a whole lot of peace because I know I am like mouldable clay in my potter’s hands.
Stepping out boldly and courageously into unknown territory, I am ready to live extraordinarily as if it were nothing out of the ordinary. To chase the deepest desires of my heart, which is to reach the hearts of the lost, broken and poor in spirit so that they may tangibly believe that truly anything is possible.
So this is what it looks like for “Rebecca Ronald” to broaden her horizons, spread her wings and live a life that it is outwardly focused.
Forever will I live by the MNB philosophy, to move my body everyday, nourishing from the inside and believing that anything is possible.
But now its time to also L.U.T.U as my friends call it – Loving the Unlovable & Touching the Untouchable!
I’m taking a big breath and leaping out of my comfort zone – I am flitting off to pursue the call of LOVE, wherever it may lead me.
So watch this space my honeybees, I’ll still be sending you a LOVE letter every now and then amidst my sweet travels.
