The past few weeks have gone by so quickly it already feels a blur! In May my daughter married her best friend and we were so excited to be a part of this celebration.
Upon return from the wedding I had time off from work as I prepared for surgery at the end of May. We went camping with our camping group and then with friends out to BC. This time was to relax and slow down for a bit. This is quite out of character for me! I even spent time in nature in spite of the bugs!
When I first envisioned my time off I had great plans and ideas of how I would spend my time. I began with repurposing a room in our house that the unused Bowflex lived in. The end result was a meditation room to spend time in, one of my many plans.
However the days went by and I wasn’t really doing anything, in truth I was wasting my time. I became bored and listless. I did have moments when I completed goals that I wanted to accomplish so “yay me” but I could sense that I was missing something, I started to feel a ‘disconnect’ in some areas of my life.
Things had not gone as planned for my surgery; I had some respiratory issues following surgery along with the surgeon telling me completely different information that impacted my recovery process. More situations in my life occurred and each one just seemed to add more and more sadness inside. I started to feel like I was falling off the rails.
Then a couple of days ago a quiet voice whispered ….Intention… and again louder this time….INTENTION…
Melissa Eisler writes, “An intention is a guiding principle for how you want to be, live, and show up in the world.”
So how do I want to show up in the world? What matters most to me?
Do I trust the journey? Do I have faith in the path I have chosen?
What do I want to create in my life?
What do I want to BE more of?
What am I grateful for?
What brings me joy?
What do I need to let go of? What fears do I have?
Is there un-forgiveness in my life?
How is your life going? Do these questions resonate in your heart? How do you want to show up in the world?
I know these are some big questions for me right now as I pull myself back on the rails and get back to walking the path that is meant for me. It is in the intentions I set for myself that will carry me along to where I need to go. One step at a time, one day at time.
