Oh, what a Sacred journey this precious life!
It’s been months (honestly, almost a year) since my last blog and there are moments when i get down on myself for not expressing all that i long to share. So i thought i would re-enter the stream of blogging by just honoring my Truth. “Things Take Time!” An axiom i learned from my beloved teacher and ex-husband.
In fact, sometimes it’s takes a really long time! The loss of one’s identity as a wife, partner & teacher and the act of becoming a single parent while trying to keep some form of “normalcy” in my beautiful child’s life put my compass on survival mode. Scrambling to find my roots as i manage my breath. Trying to remember within each tear the essence of my Soul. Humbled by each community request and support for help, i felt (and at times still do) like i had failed.
Yet if i were cuddled up with my daughter, who may be having such a moment, i would offer her love and empathy as i gently rubbed the back of her heart. Knowing me (because i do), i would add some teaching morsel of “what is this opportunity possibly gifting you?”
“We gain strength, and courage, and confidence by each experience in which we really stop to look fear in the face…we must do that which we think we cannot.” – Eleanor Roosevelt
We each have our own unique path to explore, navigate and follow that brings us h(om)e to Source. Identifying what sources me and what Source is to me has gifted me serenity, courage and wisdom. I dare say, that’s why i am finally sharing this naked part of myself with you.
Each day, i awake with a prayer of gratitude that I AM capable, I AM love and everything IS working for my Highest good. I hold this same knowing as well for each and every one of you on your Sacred journey. Namaste!
