It is a quiet morning in the tree house today. I pause and savor the silence. I can hear the birds talking and singing outside my window. I look inside and I feel a silence, a calm quiet space. Soon I will need to peel away and enter the busyness of the day. It is easy to get swept up in the daily doings. At this moment, I'm here.
Thoughts of a dear friend come to mind who stopped by my office yesterday with news of a scary diagnosis. We talked about the next visible steps as she explores her options. I could see her standing in front of a fog, that not knowing place of what her future holds. I shared stories of remarkable people like Mark Nepo and Kris Carr two people whose own lives show how one can outlive a scary diagnosis. I looked over at this friend and I saw a beautiful woman whose life is going to change and what I saw was a new life where she will be healthier, with more zest, and where each moment is more precious. I shared this vision and I could see that she could see it too. I knew she was ready for this diagnosis and ready to make a change in her life. It will be hard and it will be scary, but she is one of the strongest women I know. As she left my office and I could see hope in her step.
Are you feeling like you are in a fog? Maybe you don't have a scary diagnosis that you are facing, but rather a lack of direction in your life? I started a new project this month that I call the Journey of the Heart Journal. In this week's journal post I talk about navigating in the fog. I invite you to check it out. I offer a free journal page to download. CLICK HERE to learn more.
Have a lovely day and I hope that my project can help bring clarity to your life.
