Today I felt restless and unsettled. I found myself fixating on things I don’t normally worry about. Throughout the day, I felt like I was being pulled away from my center … from that which matters most.
I realize this is part of being human (even though it’s said we’re spiritual beings having a human experience and not the other way around) and today my humanity was ever-present.
So, I pulled out this passage–which I intentionally included in the introduction of both my first and second books–to help me remember what the life I desire looks, feels and sounds like.
The life I desire is marked by a deep connection to my child and to my partner. It’s a life filled with joy and meaning. It’s a life in which I feel supported and nurtured by an incredible community of men and women—young and old. I experience regular, meaningful, heartfelt connections with people I care about. I am continually open to growth—as a woman, a mother, a partner and a spiritual being. I enjoy supporting and serving others in a way that feeds me rather than drains me. I feel that I always have enough time in my life for those things that are most important to me. My life flows, I trust my intuition and I expect good to come to me. I feel peaceful. I am loving and I feel loved. This is the life I desire.
It was only after I embarked on my self-care journey and truly began to connect to my needs and desires, that I was finally able to articulate this.
Oh (breath out)… yeah, that’s right! I needed that reminder.
May tomorrow be filled with clarity, a bit more light and perhaps even a small dose of Divinity.
