When was the last time you saw a shooting star? I saw one last night. The odds apparently vary by where you live, conditions, etc.
I cannot remember the last time that I saw one, but the one last night was stunning as it fell thru the sky at just the right angle to see thru the palm trees in my backyard as I was sharing a drink with a friend.
Quite possibly it was simply having my eyes more open, more observant to my surroundings. Yesterday, I wrote a cathartic piece, which went viral much to my surprise.
The last 6 months, especially the last 3, have been about me living more authentically as myself letting the bullshit go, speaking my mind, and following my passions.
Life is manifesting itself in magnificent ways right now. I feel great comfort in being rewarded for authenticity.
For a long time I tried to be someone who is just not me. I lived a life where I lost myself trying to fit into the life I created. Now, I get to quite literally create a new life.
The next year is going to be crazy. I start my new day job on Tuesday and we launched a B-Corp for my community in February with the press release launching last week.
Self-care is going to be my critical balance, looking for those days where I can sit at home and enjoy the comfort of home as well as continuing to engage in physical movement: aerial yoga, rock climbing, yoga, ice skating, etc.
I am mesmerized by how my life is unfolding at the moment. The way that my garden is blossoming, my friendships are becoming more meaningful, and my ability to enjoy life moment by moment continues to expand.
For someone who lived a life full of fear, fear of leaving a job, fear of leaving a relationship, quite the fearful life, the ability to live a life so absent of fear, a life where I trust myself implicitly is liberating.
