Go ahead, listen to your heart. It may be trying to tell you something…

There comes a point in life when you are willing to let go of everything you know and leap into the unknown, trusting that somehow you will grow from this and perhaps find your life’s true purpose.

Up until 2013, I thought my life’s true purpose was in teaching and making a difference in the lives of children and families. But after having been denied tenure in the NYC Department of Education in June of 2013 (more details to follow in a future post), my confidence in not only myself and my teaching abilities, but also my life’s true purpose was shaken to the core.

In November of 2013, I began a profound soul awareness journey. Through prayer and meditation, I reconnected with my heart’s desires. I felt a stirring in my soul to move back to Hawaii and on January 19, 2014, I boarded the plane and made my way back to Oahu. The way my life has been unfolding ever since I moved back has been surreal and I’ve been reassured that divine order is at work in my life.

I love connecting with others and sharing my life experiences in hopes of encouraging and learning from my fellow human beings. Follow me as my new life here in Hawaii and other places unfolds. I look forward to traveling this road with you.

I would love to read about your experiences with taking leaps of faith. Please adhere to the following comment guidelines: Speak with good purpose; avoid or limit curse words, and be concise. Mahalo!

About Magaly L.

Five Facts About Me: 1. I was born in El Salvador, grew up in NY, and after being in the United States for almost 33 years, I finally became a citizen in 2013. I was super excited when I voted for the first time! 2. My personal favorites: chocolate, desserts, dancing, the beach, leisure travel, reading, juicing, gardening, cooking, spending time with family, and writing. I really do love chocolate. I prefer dark chocolate, but any chocolate is better than none. I also love red velvet cupcakes from my favorite bakery in NYC, Two Little Red Hens on the Upper East Side. And I love spending time in nature. There's something so peaceful about listening to the birds or listening to the waves break, that centers me in the present moment and reminds me that Divine order is at work in my life. 3. I come from a large family and I love it! My parents, two brothers, one sister, LOTS of cousins, aunts, uncles, abuelos, and my "gotitas de amor"-my nieces and nephews. 4. I am an educator both by training and at heart. 5. I have been living with PNES (psychogenic non-epileptic seizures) since 2007. Though this condition has been life-altering and challenging to live with at times, it has also led me to a more fulfilling life, strengthening my faith and helping me have the courage to pursue my passions and chase a couple of dreams.

    Yes I took a leap of faith when I moved to Dublin. Magaly it is one of the best decisions I’ve made. I’m learning about a whole new culture and way of life. I’m getting to the heart of what makes me happy and what doesn’t serve me. I’ve learned to slow down and enjoy the happy moments. It’s not easy and I still struggle but I believe following your heart will make you most happy in life. And life’s too short to not be happy! I’m going to follow your blog. I love how you’re working on turning a potentially negative situation into an amazing positive one. Keep it up lady! xoxo

    I followed my dreams….literally to move myself from Michigan to Oregon. I had VERY limited funds. Just $200 over the cost of the one way train ticket! and had reduced my possessions to only things that would fit in my giant hiking bag to make the move easier. I was fortunate enough to land in the comfort of some Michigan friends and had my ups and downs since landing here last fall, but I am following my bliss. The universe provides when we do so. I met amazing people on my journey and am motivated to remain true to myself more than ever. Cheers to your leap of faith and may the wind ever fill your sails.
