I could make the drive to and from work with my eyes closed. I have been going the same way for ten years. These roads which were once unfamiliar and unknown have now become a part of my DNA. I remember when I arrived that first day. Unsure of where to park, feeling deeply the jitters of the unknown as I stepped into a world I was completely unfamiliar with. Never did I imagine what I would learn within these four walls or the way I would grow and expand. I didn't expect to unearth friendships, take an unexpected trip, get my heart broken, laugh deeply, strengthen my voice, fill my heart with memories.
What was began as a temporary job evolved into finding my way to marketing. I never thought I would end up here, but then again I never really knew where I was going. I tend to follow my heart and take a chance. I am grateful for the way these walls have held me gently, encouraged me to step forward, and given me financial security to enjoy the the moments of my days.
Yet, there has been a constant tug inside my heart nudging me to step into my light and do the work I am meant to do in this world. The biggest challenge has been that I am unsure what exactly that looks like. What I know for certain is:
- I am called to being in service to others
- I have a strong desire to guide individuals in opening up to their heart to the page and experiencing the healing powers of their own written word
- I want to encourage others to move their bodies and tend to their minds
- I crave work that builds confidence in others
- I understand the importance of deep self care and want to encourage others to nourish their hearts and souls
- I want to invite people to experience the healing powers of nature
- And I want to do all of this with a heart wide open with love
Because how we show up in the world matters. And when we feel called to do something we have to listen to the universe and simply go after it. I don't know what shape or form it is going to take but I know that I need to get quiet and listen. I need to give myself breathing room to figure it out. I need to remember that it doesn't have to be so hard.
March is the month of the bear for me which means waking from spiritual slumber / beginning anew. This card could not be more perfectly timed as I feel the stirring inside my heart getting stronger and this familiar ground I have been traveling on is starting to feel very unfamiliar.
It is time for me to wake from my slumber and move towards the light that is burning inside my heart. It is time to transform. It is time to begin.
I have been known to do things in life in a non traditional way. I follow my heart. Put one foot in front of the other and simply see what happens. I do not worry to much about the what if's. I take the chance. This hasn't always worked out in my favor but one thing is for certain; I have learned so much along the way and have grown into who I am today. I wouldn't have it any other way.
As I stand on the edge of this horizon I know I need to leap and give myself space to figure it out. I cannot delay a single second longer. Life passes by in the blink of an eye and it is time for me to shine. I need to step forward and carve my own path. My journey is just beginning.
