Good morning/afternoon/evening everyone! I hope you all are well. And for those that celebrates Memorial Day, Happy Memorial Day to you! A special one of thanks and gratitude to the military family and friends I know. Thank you for your service.
Today’s post is about transformation from an article I read and since it hit close to what I was planning on blogging about, I decided to share it.
What does transformation means to you, and have you ever went through one? How have it affected you?
Transformation is so important in our lives, for our well-being, and most of all for us spiritually. When there is an area or two (or more) in our life that we need to work on, we don’t sit back and hope it will one day work out on its own. No, we work on those area(s) ourselves so we can heal and grow spiritually. And in most cases, mentally, emotionally, sexually, etc.
This article hadn’t touched all the bases I want to talk about; however, I will one day come back to elaborate more. Though, below are the five things we must realize if we want to transform into a better us I had added to give you some insight on what the article entailed. And what I took from each one. You can read the entire article by clicking the link below. I do hope it helps someone.
Take care of yourself from the inside out.
“Change is inevitable, but transformation is by conscious choice.” — Heather Ash Amara
When you hear people talking about becoming better versions of themselves you probably imagine a Disney transformation. In real life transformation happens differently. If you want to know how differently ask the butterfly that transforms from a caterpillar. The truth is, transformation is not a smooth path. It means facing everything within you that you run away from, staying within that inner goo until you are done.
And by done, I mean until you are ready to break out of your cocoon and face the real world.
Here are the five things you must realize if you want to transform into better and truer version of yourself:
1. You must let go of the pain from your past. (Before you can transform into a better version, you must let go of this pain because it will keep holding you down, even in the most perfect reality you can imagine.)
2. There is no alternative. (We want to change but we don’t want to leave our comfort zone. Well sorry, it can’t be done like that. The sooner you embrace this fact and take action, the better.)
3. Stop trying to be yourself. (Stop trying, and BE!)
4. Transformation is now. (Real freedom is now, it’s in your choices this moment. Knowing what to do will not serve you anything if you don’t do something right now. If you want to change your life, you don’t plan, you do it in this right exact moment. You stop reading and you call the person you want to call to tell them what you wanted.)
5. Learn to surf. (The most powerful way is to learn how to use the force of the stream in your favor, not as something you fight. This means you go with the current but you surf it to your favor.)
For a little over a year, I have thought about traveling since it’s something that I love to do but don’t get a chance to… hardly. I always wanted to explore the world, nationally and internationally since I was a young girl.
For those of you who have been following me a while, you know I love to write. Writing is a lifelong passion of mines and a way of life. Anyway, although I am working hard on my craft, to get my content, stories, etc out there, I’m not giving up. Some things been going on and I won’t speak negative on them.
I am, though, considering other ways, just haven’t started, though I am sharing what I researched for anyone who may be thinking about trying travel writing out.

At first glance, the familiar recognition of mirrored souls was astounding as they stared deeply into each other eyes. Finally meeting at a resort in Montego Bay, Jamaica, they embraced and held on for a minute longer before ambling over to a tranquil area.
She touched his cheek softly and said how much this moment means to her; however, her lips hadn’t moved. Though, telepathically, he received her message and planted his lips upon hers.
Unhurriedly disconnecting to watch the waves of the blue-green ocean, they’re relieved to have finally given their healed heart another chance at love.

This micofiction story was one I’ve written in 2017 for the César E Serrano Foundation competition. A couple of weeks ago I found out I didn’t won and yesterday I found out I didn’t made the finalist list either.
Although I am hurt by that, I am grateful to have taken a part in their foundation. It had really helped me. I once made a post last November about the International Day Of Words and about receiving a letter about being their ambassador and such.
