Are You Awake Inside of Your Life?

I can’t act like this is a heavy question I have been pondering for weeks. It just jumped inside my head and demanded to be the blog post today as I resume/or start to really explore my thinking out loud on paper. The better question is more personal: “Am I Awake Inside of My Own Life?” Focusing on the laser-driven question reminds me to check  inside before going out into the world.  It matters that I am awake and fully present inside of my life.

I am committed to have my personal and professional missions be aligned.  This needs my alert and ready attention. I want to enjoy the riches from my life and career.  This means holding a sacred space for my husband, family and friends. Only I can orchestrate that the things I enjoy most on the professional side are congruent with what I enjoy most on the personal side. I don’t want to snooze through that song. At this stage of my life, I am really hearing the music of my soul.

I do feel awake inside of my own life. But I also know I can drift into cruise control: waking up each day without a plan or commitment to finishing something started. It doesn’t matter if it is knitting a scarf or finishing another chapter on my memoir.  What I know for sure is that being fully awake, accounted for my own dreams requires the energy to will it so and the power to believe.  I have energy to unleash to make my dreams come true. I have stories to tell that will help and heal. I have songs to write to rock the melody of my own life. Yeah! I am awake.

I am here now.

    I truly enjoyed reading your thoughts on Being Awake Inside Your Life. Reading this brought back memories of the many, many thought provoking conversations you shared with me in Germany so many years it seems ago.
