“There are days that I know, without a shadow of a doubt,
that I am among the most fortunate humans
who have ever lived.
There are times when my heart
is so filled with love
I fear it might burst.
Being human is hard.
And it hurts.
And yet, when we share the pain, feel it with each other, acknowledge how difficult and seemingly unjust circumstances have been
Dare to see and be seen
Then love is revealed.
Vast as the sky.
Able to hold whatever passes through without being marred in any way.
The fullness of life is excrutiatingly beautiful
~Corina Lynn Benner
Here I go. I’m about to embark on a new adventure. A quest to redefine myself and start my life anew. I often ask myself “is this what life wants from me?” If I continue to live my life in order to serve, in order to fulfill my purpose on this earth, I often wonder if I’m listening intently enough to the wisdom that guides me through. As I prepare myself to leave a place without a job to go to, without a partner to join, with nothing planned except a lot more travel, I wonder; “am I doing the right thing?”
Sometimes all I need to remember is that there is something far greater than my own understanding can grasp, of which I believe with every inch of my being, that is guiding me through my journey of life. And I trust it. At least now more than ever I do. Although I know that I play a huge part in my own destiny by the choices that I make, sometimes it’s the scariest experience to feel as though I’m not always in control of where life takes me. In the moments I haven’t trusted the process, life has given me far greater (and sometimes unpleasant) surprises in order to bring me back on track.
So here I go. Leaving a place I’ve thrived in. Leaving behind amazing friends, the best of teachers and another bubble of comfort, in order to leap into my next adventure in life. Here’s to change. An inevitable part of life that requires a leap of faith, a lot of courage and trust that everything will turn out exactly as the universe intends it to.
Blessings to YOU
