Such is Life | Pause & Reflect
DUALLY derived from the French phrase "C'est la vie" and Hebrew term "Selah", Selah V is a weekly blog that parallels both of these terms through a thoughtful reflection on life.
INDICATIVE of its starting point, Selah V also hints to this 5th year (Roman Numeral V) of my spiritual renewal. My name is Andrea Jayne Martin, founder of Selah® | Holistic Yoga. 5 years ago, I was isolated, stripped down & made new... delivered from the bondage of addiction and enlightened with a renewed purpose & spirit of compassion for myself and others. What I have left is a constant burden to use my personal testimony to support and encourage others on their own journey to abundant living.
I have wanted to create this blog for some time now, but...
"To everything there is a season,
A time for every purpose under heaven:
A time to be born,
And a time to die;
A time to plant,
And a time to pluck what is planted;
A time to kill,
And a time to heal;
A time to break down,
And a time to build up;
A time to weep,
And a time to laugh;
A time to mourn,
And a time to dance..."
THE reality is that between juggling full-time work & school balanced with abundant living & relationships, I was SO not ready. To be honest, I am still not ready from my own perspective. But, is one ever fully ready? One definition describes the word ready as "within reach." Through contemplation and prayer, the answer I found was that I do not need to have "arrived" at this unreachable destination to be heard. Or to have impact. Instead, I must ask, "Is this within reach?" The answer to that question over the past 5 years has been a consistent no. Life was often just short of chaos. But, as of this past Saturday, this yogini is now a Rhode Island College Graduate holding 2 Bachelor's Degrees, a Minor, and a Certificate- and all of a sudden has some free time on her hands. I also know these posts will look much different now than they would have 5 years ago. So, destiny, I am ready now.
"You have turned for me my mourning into dancing..."
