Nine Lives {Endings and Beginnings}

Pin It When I first decided to start blogging {for about the fifth time} I sat long and hard thinking about what to name my blog. As the creative wheels were spinning in my head, I finally settled on Nuef Vies {Nine Lives} to represent the endings and beginnings of life's journey. 

Although we all live one ultimate life, I believe we are constantly changing and growing throughout it, causing in a sense, us to live multiple lives within our one life. Change is good. Change is needed to create transformations in our journey. Change allows us put to rest some of life's pain and move toward new beginnings. But change and new beginnings comes in all forms and it isn't always easy. In fact, even good change is more likely than not met with challenges {moving, new jobs, etc.} 

Change is necessary to progress in life. I often times think of one of my favorite books when I think about change. Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert said, 
“Ruin is a gift. Ruin is the road to transformation.”
Ruin however good or bad, is truly a gift. There are times in life that we feel helpless and don't know the right answers to our problems. Ruin happens and causes chaos to our life, but it's there to guide us, and even push us if need be, into the direction we were meant to take. 

Are there any changes that need to be made in your life? And remember, never be afraid to ask for some guidance or a helping hand from your significant other, family, or friends. No matter how strong you may be, sometimes the best thing you can do is turned to your loved ones.  We're in this life together, after all....

  1. This is beautifully well written and is exactly the same way I think. Good changes are almost always masked by hard dark times. All things happen for a reason and are leading you to the better and right place you belong
