Looking out the window I realize that me and the leaves are the same – we both disappeared last fall and are just now making an appearance. I’ve been grounded close to home and family through illness, loss, opportunity and inevitable change. Though difficult, it’s been good because I learned something at a deeper level.
Loss frees up space to be more authentic.
Time for work has been pushed aside these last months but when I have it, I’ve chosen to pursue a lifelong dream – to write and publish books. I’m excited to say that my first book will be born in the summer.
Balancing family and work is never easy. Even after 20 years of practice, I teeter in favor of one side only to find myself neglecting the other in some way.
When life gets fuller and bigger, it requires letting go of expectation. There are some things that just aren’t going to get done.
There are things I don’t know how to do and must ask for help.
There are still other things I will mess up entirely, but it’s not the end of the world. I’m learning how to work sporadically but efficiently to get things done. I’m learning. as my husband constantly reminds me, “to win the war, not the battle.”
Spring finds me blooming in new ways. I’m showing up with intention to be authentic in all that I do – especially when it comes to sharing the connection between my personal and work life. I’ll be sharing more about my book and asking for your thoughts about the things I teach and that teach me – Spirit, intuition, depression and more.
I am really excited to re-connect with you and value you in my life.
This Spring of my life has been a long time coming. I’ve learned the hard way that all seeds are planted in the dark. I can’t wait to see what grows.
