Sitting and staring at this picture of me and my kids walking . . . down a new path! Where it leads I still do not know exactly . . . but I am ready to simply put one foot in front of the other. This is “A Friday Moment” I am holding on to. It’s uncomfortable for me but I am making a bold promise to myself to look at every aspect of my life. Choosing to not rely on comfort and security and knowing that I might just fail and fall harder than ever before. Feeling vulnerable . . . more than I wish. Taking the time to ask difficult questions and having difficult conversations . . . realizing that the answers might hurt. Allowing myself to fumble when I desperately wish to show grace and poise.
Meditating. Reflecting. Dreaming. Living.
Getting the strengthen to break through all these self-imposed obstacles that ultimately obstruct my happiness and joy. Learning to set new intentions with a balance between knowing when to push forward and when to rest. Finding a clarity while walking down a new path with the knowledge that failing is simply ok. Because it is in this place of failure where creativity is ignited, passions come alive, connections with people and my natural world are strengthened and my instinct is sharpened. Having the skills to live more brave and bold which will help to bring meaning to my beautiful, crazy life . . . all begin by walking down a new path!
To committing to “A Friday Moment” . . . by simply walking in a different direction, down a new path! Hugs, M.
