Changes can be overwhelming. Changes can also be inspiring and full of excitement. Some of us love the change of seasons. Others dread the change in schedules. This week, as I ponder about life and look for the sacred opportunities to find the joy, I am struck by the many changes that are happening.
I’ve often said that change is the only constant. And in change, there is always a moment where one realizes how uncomfortable they feel. This uncomfortable feeling is normal yet for me, I’m usually surprised by it. It has become a feeling that I’ve gotten used to over the past several years. I tend to put myself in more situations and experiences where change is happening. I’d say the last year of my life has been uncomfortable. So much of my year was filled with unknowns and new people and new experiences. There are moments where I feel exhausted. This is my red flag!
In just a few short weeks, I’ll be celebrating my 1 year anniversary of moving back to Minnesota. It’s kind of strange for me to think about being here a year. I will say that I am finally starting to feel more grounded. It’s been so supportive to stop and sit in all the newness. I’m filled with gratitude for the experiences I’ve had, all the people I’ve met, and all the moments of being uncomfortable.
I missed my “Blog Friday” commitment and it’s Sunday evening as I write this blog. I’ve realized that my life has taken on the busyness of life in beautiful ways but also ways where I’ve lost my boundaries and my priorities. Today I took time to connect with myself. Check in on my desires. Organize my priorities, connect with the Divine for some much needed guidance, and SLOW DOWN.
I’m adjusting my ‘red flag’ signals so they come quicker. I’ve reached a place in my life that red flags need to pop up sooner rather than later as it’s important for me to stay on track – better put, stay connected with my heart! I’ve created a life that gives me the flexibility to do that and I am grateful to myself, to the Divine and to everyone in my life for helping me create this reality.
I have new insights, bigger dreams, deeper desires than ever before in my life. I can feel the pulse of the Mother and the buzz of life all around me. It’s more important to me to stay connected to that rhythm than it is for me to ‘be busy’. There is so much more to share about where my heart is leading me but I’m going to save that for another time. Instead, I’ll leave you with this question:
What is your heart calling you to BE?
Heart to heart,
