I’ve gone through life believing in the strength and competence of others; never in my own. Now, dazzled, I discover that my capacities are real. It’s like finding a fortune in the lining of an old coat.
I’ve been reminded today about the importance of celebrating the journey, of pausing to consider the strengths that continue to emerge as we follow the murmurings of our soul. The soul speaks, quietly urging us forward, whispering truths of authenticity, cultivating our awareness of environments activities and people that fail to nurture our growth
As I work to re-member my higher self, and go about life in my clunky, inelegant way, I am stirred by strengths … both of others who walk the path with me, and by my own emerging connection to my soul. I will celebrate this stirring and continue to clumsily juggle courage with mediocrity and occasional insights of brilliance as I interpret and claim the murmurings of my soul
If you don’t feel it, flee from it. Go where you are celebrated, not merely tolerated
