You are on a path
I carved out time this morning to blog as I have so many thoughts swirling in this brain of mine. Turns out no particular topic or words of wisdom are making their way into cohesive thought – just a lot of wondering about where I am on this path and why I am feeling more challenged and tentative about things than I have in some time.
So instead of rambling with no rhyme or reason, I have decided to practice patience with myself and to remind myself this is all part of the journey. Sometimes we have to embrace the unknown and just roll with it.
I want to share one of my favorite quotes from Caroline Adams – as it, perhaps better than anything – reminds me that I am exactly where I am meant to be right now. We are paused here for a reason. There must be more to do/learn/see.
Your life is a Sacred Journey
(Caroline Joy Adams)
“Your life is a sacred journey. It is about change, growth, discovery, movement, transformation, continuously expanding your vision of what is possible, stretching your soul, learning to see clearly and deeply, listening to your intuition, taking courageous risks, embracing challenges at every step along the way.
You are on the path. Exactly where you are meant to be right now… And from here, you can only go forward, sharpening your life story into a magnificent tale of triumph, of healing, of courage, beauty, wisdom, power, dignity and love.”
Gosh I love this! I can honestly say that these past 8 months (this next week is eight months since I started my journey) have been all about change, growth, discovery, movement, transformation…all of the above. What a gift! I can’t wait to see how it unfolds.
This next week I head to the North Shore for work and get to hike and climb many more footpaths on my journey. Maybe some clarity will come on those paths. I can’t wait to see what’s next.
Hugs to all my lions. Thanks for reading/listening. Feel free to share words of wisdom or personal experiences. I am listening.
(Notes to mark this place in the journey: Weight loss has slowed to -7 lbs lost in the last five weeks. Emotional part of the journey much tougher. Total weight lost in 8 months = -130 lbs. Some current bumps in the road – nothing I can’t overcome. Next goal/challenge: Climb a BIGGER mountain in Maine in mid October with my lions.)
