Interpreting life as a journey helps keep me going.
Sometimes we get a little lost only to find we were on the right path all along and didn’t know it.
Sometimes the path is bright and cheery and others filled with sorrow. Sometimes the direction is clear and sometimes it makes little sense.
Too often I find I am walking someone else path or the one I think I am supposed to be on rather than the path that is unique and true to me.
There are moments in life that seem so amazing, I don’t want them to ever end or change- but they do and life changes and moves on.
Some moments are so filled with pain and hurt we want to move on, but feel so stuck it is hard to take another step.
Others can join us, love us, support us. Sometimes it is for a long time, others it is fleeting. Some people seem to be in our path as obstacles to our movement and happiness. These people can show us parts of ourselves where we need to grow that we would really rather not see.
My current life journey includes launching my youngest into adulthood. It is exciting and scary. For 33 years I have had a child at home to care for, nurture and prepare for moving on. It seems like a huge step to move on from here. In reality it is just one step, just like the others, just like each day.
I remind myself of my intentions-
Give and receive love generously
Be open and connected to my creator
Experience fun and excitement in each situation
These are the constants I want to keep in my daily life journey. For today I will add –
Just keep moving
Your path belongs to you. Where are you going and how do you want to get there? What are your intentions for today??
