I saw this poem in a magazine while I was living in Milan in my early 20's.
Utterly frustrated at the time with life, with myself. My body felt tense, that my arms would ache sometimes. I'd had come here in search of something and I didn't find it.
I left the country, because I couldn't stand my life before and thought by going on an adventure, in a new environment, different culture, new job, something would change. It didn't. I landed an internship in a fashion agency with almost no Italian language skills, and STILL frustration was my companion. why wasn't i happy, i would ask myself.
I had to learn the hard way, that the answers weren't outside of me. I even left the country in order to seek of fulfillment and happiness.
i mean don't get me wrong - i was still enjoying all the culture i was able to soak up in Italy. And if I had to do it all again, I would have. Because I know it contributed to what I am today.
But if I had to take a main lesson from my time in Milan, is that having outside gratification, from a job or a relationship, will never create sustainable happiness.
Little did I know that it was the beginning of my healing journey back to myself.
back to listening to my heart.
unknowing that all the answers were within me. i would hear that in books that I would read. but i was too much in my head to really be able to know how that felt like.
which is why i feel so inspired and compelled to share my story with you in order for you to come back to the subtle whispers of your heart & finding your divine purpose.
