To all my Zumba friends, this one’s for you ❤
2016 has been an eventful year for me because I wrote my first book and continued to heal from my traumatic divorce like a rock star. In March 2017, my book will be released and more healing will occur which I am dually grateful for and excited about.
Recently, I was at one of my Zumba classes, and a song came on that brought me back to the good old 80’s and inspired me to write this blog. The song was Man In The Mirror by Michael Jackson and in it, he is sending the message that in order to make a change in this world you need to look at yourself first and take a look in the mirror. We are living in a world where we tend to play the blame game over and over again and are so afraid of taking any responsibility for our own actions. Not only does this get you to nowhere land but it stunts your personal growth and development big time.
In order to move forward in life and learn from our mistakes, we need to stop complaining and depending on other people to make changes for us. We need to take a look in the mirror at ourselves and make the changes from within that we want to see because that’s where it all begins. Imagine if only half of the world’s population could do this and how much fighting could end and how much peace could be gained.
It’s easy to turn a blind eye to what’s happening to people less fortunate than us and so much more work to look within ourselves, but in the end, it’s also more rewarding long-term to be your own mirror.
Another song that ties in with this one is also by Michael Jackson and it’s called Heal The World. This is a cry for help for those in need and since it’s the Christmas season, what better time to do this. Everyone has their issues and situations they’re dealing with and healing from, and all it takes is a little compassion and an open heart to help someone thrive. Even though we might live in different countries around the world, we are still connected and want the same things out of life which are love, connection, and peace. If we could only realize we’re all in this life together, we could really heal the world and make it a better place for you and for me and the entire human race.
My best wishes and love to each and every one of you in 2017 and thank you so much for your support all this time, I am extremely grateful for YOU.
Enjoy the music, be your own mirror and heal the world ❤
Much Love ❤
