It took a while for me to decide on what would my first post be about and then it came to me. It speaks to the meaning behind this site…PURPOSE. The last 2 years has been a collage of experiences in my reawakening..to challenge myself in growing, transforming and continuing to evolve in fulfilling my purpose. I want to share that same challenge with you.
For not just myself but many people around me, we all have experienced challenges, difficulties, hurts, and struggles. Personally, my life in a way came to a halt. I’ve found myself and others seeking direction and not quite clear on life and where it was meant to lead.
I often say that God uses pain and struggle as a megaphone to speak to us. As difficult as it can be to embrace pain, change, and lack of clarity, it’s necessary to step into it and through it so that we can come out of the other side victoriously.
After spending much time being still, silent, reflecting, praying, fasting, seeking, learning, I am reawakening. I feel this time is necessary in all of our lives and that it’s part of our continual journey of self-actualization.
No matter where you are in life, it is perfect. You are exactly where you are meant to be, so embrace it. To truly do that, I say ask yourself and keep digging and seeking to answer the questions:
Why is this happening? What am I meant to learn & get out of this?
What am I truly here for? Is what I’m doing fulfilling that? If not, why am I doing what I’m doing?
I’ve let go of doing things that when I asked these questions I realized that they are not contributing to my purpose. And I’m challenging myself to use all areas of my life spiritual, family, work, hobbies, gifts, and more to fulfill and embrace my, Fredi Nyashia’s purpose. Hence, this site, F7LN.
F7LN has a double meaning:
First it stands for ‘For 7 Loves: Nstruments of Nspiration’: art (visual), music, creativity, spiritual gifts, talents/abilities, daily experiences, and life’s journey…with a focus to uplift, and inspire.
Secondly, F7LN represents me, Fredi NyAshia, the 7 is my favorite number but also symbolic in so many spiritual aspects (you will often see 7 represented in features on the site), and ‘L’ for LOVE.
All of this with the simplest purpose: to embrace, show & share with you LOVE.
So, with that said..Welcome to F7LN.
