Just a week ago, I was graced enough to mark yet another year that my physical being has journeyed around the sun. While I jokingly dreaded the day, commenting that I was now on “the other side” of my 20′s, I realized today just how beautiful that is. I don’t believe that we age; I believe that every year, we become more of who we really are.
When I look at who I was last year, I can say that I have been truly generous and loving with myself in this past year. I’ve been generous in the sense that I’ve allowed myself to be who I really am, and now I live my life in a way that reflects that. Home is where the heart is…and honey, I’m home!
Now that I’m home, mi casa es su casa. My house is your house. And as a good hostess, it’s only obligatory that I let you in on what I’ve learned- my Buddhayana.
But Wait- What’s a Buddhayana?!
In this case, Buddhayana can be described as a vehicle of knowledge, which provides you with the skills to show up for your life experiences.
