DAY 56: 107 STEPS!

My daughter Sasha strapped on the pedometer the other day while she and I were schlepping some of my knick knacks from my old apartment to my new one. You guessed it, total distance: 107 steps! And even though it is a relatively short distance to travel, it has taken me a helluva  long time to get here.

I’m moving, next door plus one and I’m feeling really excited about it. I have never lived on my own before; I’ll be 50 in November. This is a huge step for me, well supported by the four most important people in my life, and it is hard for me to believe that I have finally arrived here. I’m the bride and the groom standing at the threshold of the next phase of my life. And I’m carrying myself through.

Next weekend, when I am well and truly moved in, I’m celebrating, making a roast chicken dinner with all of my kids favorite trimmings. We’ll eat together, in my new place, basking in the success of a move well made and luxuriating in the love that we have for one another. It’s the shimmering new blending with the best of the old.

This is my life, and I’m so grateful to be living it; enveloped in love, cocooned in my treetop place, transforming and being transformed. Finally beginning to trust the process!

107 steps!

Here’s to the 108th!

About livebig365

Join me as I dive in to the deep end of the pool and challenge myself to live big and love big. What does that mean? In 2012 , I accepted the invitation to push myself beyond my comfort zone, at least once a day, and engaged and responded to my life, or a given situation in my life, in a way that would normally scare the hell out of me. Why did I do it it? Because it was time time to begin, and I was ready! Each day brought a new revelation, lesson, challenge, encounter, a teaching moment, that revealed to me that living big and loving big are uniquely interconnected. Welcome 2013, the year of lovebig 365. Each post was an expression of love experienced, witnessed, inspired, manifested. It didn't always make sense in the moment, and yet its sheer mystery hopefully evoked a beautiful affirmation of life and all of its shimmery brightness; broken up, lovely to behold, tender and full of purpose. 2014, jagged, bumpy, disjointed posts. 2015, silence, and plenty of growth within that silence. Manifesting 2016: The creation of a gathering place for gratitude. Join in the wavering, audacious, unequivocal fun. 2017: Reflection 2018: POWER, MAGIC, TRANSFORMATION
