A Sisterhood Committed to Well-Being and Life Satisfaction Made Blue Lotus Living Possible
Can We Achieve Well-Being and Life Satisfaction?
“Do you think well-being and life satisfaction is achievable with all that’s going on in the world?”
Both women sitting in a Toastmasters meeting had been put on the spot to answer a loaded question.
“Yes, well-being and life satisfaction are achievable if that is your focus,” Roslyn said. “Again, I say if that is your focus.”
His eyes then turned to Carmellita as if he were demanding an answer.
“I know there are some who are always waiting and preparing for the next crisis. They don’t give themselves a moment to stop and think about how they really want to live their lives,” Carmellita said.
“I was one of those people, she continued. “I believed nothing good can last. But when I decided to redirect my life and make real lasting change, I discovered adversity happens, we fall, we fail but we can recover. Learning our self-recovery process is just as important as our self-discovery journey,” Carmellita.
When The Sisterhood Began
Roslyn J. (Roslyn Rises) and Carmellita established a sisterhood while attending Louisiana Tech University.
As classmates and peers in Speech Communications, the two often collaborated on speeches, performances, and group assignments. Soon those collaborations became a sisterhood and a creative empowerment partnership.
One evening after a successful Duo Performance, “The Sisters” as they were often referred to were approached by one of the Judges and speech coaches.
Two-of-a-Kind Make One of a Kind
“You guys are going to do great things together. I think one day the two of you will create something unique, one of a kind,” the Speech Coach said pointing his finger up and then to the both of them. Roslyn and Carmellita looked at each other, smiled, and giggled as if they had a secret.
Unbeknownst to either young woman at the time, that Speech Coach was right.
The “one of a kind” thing they’ve created became Blue Lotus Living. Blue Lotus Living is a framework, online publication, and community that demonstrates well-being and life satisfaction are achievable…
But as Roslyn stated, if you are focused on it. We have distractions at every turn. Distractions that turn our eyes in the opposite direction of our dreams, in the opposite direction of our true desires, in the opposite direction of our well-being.
And it is those distractions that leave us dissatisfied with life.
Blue Lotus Living is intentional living. We all can achieve life satisfaction and well-being when slow down, refill our cups and use our time and energy towards creating a vision for our life, living on purpose, and manifesting and actualizing our dreams.
We all can be satiated on the goodness of life. Again, we can all live rich, fulfilled, happy lives. The journey begins with opening our hearts and minds to the possibility.
I Wish Somebody Would Have Told Me Sooner
In 2002, long before there was anything called “The Secret,” the twentysomething women had begun to study works such as “The Science of Getting Rich” by Wallace D. Wattles, Iyanla Vanzant’s “In the Meantime,” and “In the Spirit” by Susan Taylor to name only a few.
They also studied the Yoga Sutras by Patanjali, The Autobiography of a Yogi by Yogananda, Ancient Futures by Wayne Chandler, Egyptian Yoga: The Philosophy of Enlightenment by Muata Ashby, and The Holy Bible.
Moreover, they studied Kemetic Yoga and Living Food Nutrition at Detox International in New Orleans, Louisiana.
The impact of these works, training, and studies helped the two young women reframe their philosophy on life and break old core beliefs that no longer served them.
“Just think where we would be in life if we would have known some of this sooner,” Roslyn said often said.
Nevertheless, after losing nearly everything they “owned” in Hurricane Katrina, both women halted their studies and training for years.
Yes, they continued to read about personal development and success philosophy, but their practice and training had been replaced by overwork, tending to the needs of others, and putting themselves last on the list.
Life Satisfaction is a Full Rich Happy Life
Carmellita and Roslyn J. returned to their studies in 2015 more determined than ever.
And in 2022, they recommitted to putting the principles, systems, and training they’ve learned into action.
Through a Creative Empowerment Partnership and Sisterhood, the two women developed an accountability plan and have moved forward with making Blue Lotus Living a framework, publication, and community.
A Framework that Works
The truth is, we all want to live our best life. We all want to experience the satisfaction of a full, rich, happy life. If you look at your life and it doesn’t feel, look, smell, taste, or sound the way you want, then it’s time to re-evaluate and change your lifestyle choices.
Blue Lotus Living as a framework is designed for those committed to an intentional life design that produces a more mindful, conscious life while continuing to evolve on a soul level.
The framework adheres to “Doing the work” for personal growth, life satisfaction, and well-being while exploring the unlimited possibilities of your creative intelligence.
Yes, we are always creating and manifesting something but when we live with intention and put our well-being first on our self-awareness and soul evolution journey, we manifest and create the things, moments, and experiences that make life beautiful.
“I believe in good; therefore I live in beauty.”–Carmellita
The Community We Bring Together
Hey, we know the phrase “Better Together” has been repeated ad nauseam, but for Blue Lotus Living as a community, it applies. On our self-awareness journey, it is great to have friendships, partnerships, and a FAM with whom you can share your growth and development.
We don’t have to go it alone. Let’s support one another in our greatness. It’s something about knowing you have others on this path of true self-growth with you that makes the journey even more, well, satisfying. Learn more here.
