The Seventeenth Day: Rambling Dispatch from Wayzata: Seeing Me!

10371376_331872250298496_3966372062433325478_n The further away I pull from New Jersey, the greater my community expands. I don’t lose what I had, I gain what I never imagined. As the miles or the days or the experiences tick by, my understanding of myself expands with each new engagement. And I’m challenged; challenged to be the ever-changing me that I am re-introduced to every single day with just a little more awareness. Clarity-tweaked I am like Bill Murray after perhaps the 17th Groundhog Day; something is different, and I’m not sure what it is, but it reminds me of that Marianne Williamson quote about coming out of darkness into the light.

I have discovered that a life well lived cannot have any shortcuts. Each time I have tried to lean away from the pain, resist the adversity, avoid the obstacle, its just emerged in a slightly different person, place or thing along this journey of my life presenting an opportunity to, and here’s the irony, live its opposite.

And so I do, standing on the threshold; transcending my own understanding of myself,  I embrace all that is and all that is to come, assured that it comes from a place deep within my heart.

 

 

 

 

 

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
