Life is a mystery. We all know that.
But to live in to this truth is delicate and unsettling.
How do you draw strength from all the ways we define this?
How does this offer respite rather than fear?
How do you know your life as a great adventure?
I speak to this from a deeply personal place.
I am moving toward a full sabbatical in my work.
Creating time and space for family and travel and art.
And the unknown.
This is all about embracing the great mystery.
Yet- it's not easy is it?
How do you and I know best how to serve our lives?
How do we lean in?
I am shifting priorities for awhile.
For fresh perspective.
For tending to the loves in my life.
What are you focused on?
How do you name these things?
I intend to focus on-
my family that means the world to me
my volunteer work that means the world to me
my art that means the world to me
my travel life that means the world to me
my own spiritual practices that mean the world to me
my Sunday morning meditation group that means the world to me
a little more time for new adventures that mean the world to me
the deep quiet of possibility that means the world to me
this membership and you, the members:), that mean the world to me
And what of all the other things I love that I am setting aside?
I am learning that it's ok to pause. Just like you!
That I can still love these things AND take a break from them.
As you reflect, so will I.
Please continue on this life journey with me.
We continue to learn and grow.
