What do you do when everything you thought was going to happen, doesn't happen.
Discovering ourselves, finding ourselves, remembering who we really are . . . phrases I hear getting tossed around all over the place . . . phrases I hear myself saying at times when I am uncertain of what else to say. What happens to self-discovery when we find ourselves in the middle of unexpected, (or maybe even malicious) turn of events?
Recently my son and I were planning on making an exciting but HUGE move. We were to move from our small prairie city to a vibrant city on an Island off the Canadian west-coast. Our plans we not only interrupted but halted all together 2 days before the movers were scheduled to arrive. How does one find a solid place to begin the process of re-rooting after all roots have been pulled up?
How will I navigate through the confusion? How will I battle the demons whispering for me to give up and rage in my resentment? All this unexpected change happening so close to this Fall Equinox is symbolic to me. This next quarter of a year as our part of the earth gets darker, I too will spend time with my own darkness. I will seek out my kindness and discover how to embrace my courage.
Today, I have no answers for you only questions. I will write again, but until then I encourage you to look at your own shadows and dare yourself to not be afraid of your own greatness.
Joyous Mabon to you and yours tonight,
I have always been a gypsy at heart. I am "HOME' wherever I am :) I love life and all that comes with the experience of living . . . as the years continue to cycle, I am realizing that the ups and downs we experience are powerful indicators of where I am and who I have become!
I am the single mother of 4 beautiful and uniquely individual children. I am an entrepreneur, a daughter, a sister and a lover of the mysteries of life . . .
