This afternoon’s lunch hour was spent with one of my close friends and mentors Kristin, owner of Nourishing Storm. She is a fellow nutrition student at IIN and has been the most amazing influence along my journey!
Our intention was to have a lovely lunch in the park, to catch up, and for me to practice doing health history consultations for school. Of course, as soon as I stepped out of my car, the skies opened and it began to down pour! Being the nature loving ladies we are, we both commented on how awesome the rain felt and didn’t let it alter our plans – the blanket just got set out on the gazebo floor instead of the grass!
After the consultation, which went really well, we got to talking about how things are going in each of our lives. As we reached the topic of my relationship, and healthy relationships in general, she said something very powerful that I guess I’ve always known but often forget. Ironically enough, it had been the topic of her morning meditation.
Kristin said that we have everything we need within ourselves and its once we’re able to recognize and celebrate that completeness that we find the partner we’re meant to share this journey with. While that may sound a bit lofty, its totally true.
I believe in my heart if I had met my boyfriend even a few months earlier than I did, we wouldn’t be together. It wasn’t until I was happily on my path and finding fulfillment in everyday that I could be open to attracting ‘the right’ guy!
Always remember you’re perfect and complete just the way you are! Finding a partner in life is a blessing, not a requirement! Love you first!
