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.
