Hi friends and happy Monday to you (if there is such a thing!)
So I'm thinking real hard, reallyreally hard, about a life-change. Well, not a life-change per se, but a life-direction change. I've arrived at a point in my life where my soul is tugging at me harder than ever before, trying to get me to "listen up". I'm feeling an almost physical tug, one that's leading me in a whole new direction....where...I'm not real sure yet.
I've spent the last few years searching for my "true" calling, focusing on staying true to me, the "me" that's buried underneath mother, wife, daughter, sister, grandmother, paraprofessional, typist, artist. I've talked to many women and listened, really listened, to what they've told me~their stories, their journeys, their joys, their sorrows and I've started to give myself permission to change. If you knew me, you'd know how big that is for me since most of my life I've been comfortable in my rut.
Reiki started me on this journey, which I'm thankful for every day. Without Reiki I'd still be "plugged up", stagnant, and wallowing. I'm taking baby steps for now, one of them being that I meditated for the very first time in my life yesterday! I hope, I mean I PLAN on doing it every day...trusting that it will reveal whatever it is I need to know. And as I told my Reiki Master and friend, the thought of staying put scares me more than the thought of changing...and the thought of this change makes me joyous!
Here's to following our soul's true path!
