I adore this. Imbolc is just around the corner. The first stirrings of spring, the earth begins to warm and Persephone begins her ascent. Imbolc is the time last year that I committed to following the wheel of the year. I stand at this completion of a cycle for me completely changed. This is truly when I celebrate my new year. I feel pregnant with life, my creativity not quite “showing” but feeling it move underneath the surface. I am excited. I am so glad to be here, incarnated at this time, with these #mylovelypeeps. Thank you for being in my life. I love you all. Let the magic in.
I am one half a century old today. That #mylovelypeeps is a real milestone. How will I spend the next 50 years? What have I learned? What will I learn? Where have I come from? Where will I go? It is all up to me to create.
Stood alone on a mountain top,
starin’ out at the Great Divide
I could go east, I could go west,
it was all up to me to decide
Just then I saw a young hawk flyin’
and my soul began to rise
And pretty soon
My heart was singin’
Roll, roll me away,
I’m gonna roll me away tonight
Gotta keep rollin, gotta keep ridin’,
keep searchin’ till I find what’s right
And as the sunset faded
I spoke to the faintest first starlight
And I said next time
We’ll get it right
Bob Seger’s Roll me Away
It is my intention for the NEXT 50 years to spend each day living the full expression of my authentic life full of gratitude, joy, and love. And LOVE is the greatest of these…
I love you all. Thank you for being in my life on this huge milestone.
I have so much to say about this #mylovelypeeps. For those who follow the wheel of the year, this is the beginning of a new year. For me, I see it as a point of evaluation. What worked out this year, what was healed this year, what did I build on this year, what did I let go of this year? As November starts, I find myself looking back and looking forward. What do I want to put to bed for the winter? What do I want to release for the rest of my incarnation? How will I proceed from here? There are no right answers to these questions. There are only your answers, #mylovelypeeps, and they are the right ones for you. Be gentle but honest with yourself moving forward. We are entering a time of reflection and rest. Allow yourself a deeper understanding about the larger picture of things; be honest about what yet needs to be worked out, celebrate what you have accomplished. Remember I love you and I have your back. Stay strong and be good to one another.
One of the hardest things for us to do for ourselves and for others is to forgive. We invest so much time and energy in keeping the hurt alive and right in front of us. As we enter the next cycle of life, do we really want to carry with us that old energy? Is it time for us to put down whatever resentment, anger, displeasure we have? This thought came to me several weeks ago when I was meditating on my own need for forgiveness and letting go. The question I asked myself was this: Is what this person has done so hideous that it will keep you apart for the next 18-20 years? Can I make amends? Can I forgive? Am I willing to put the time and energy to maintain my hatred/dislike/disapproval/dissatisfaction of this person or situation for another 20 years? I think not. I am unwilling to focus any more time or energy to maintain anger. I choose love and I choose forgiveness. Be good to yourselves #mylovelypeeps. Forgive others, let stuff go. Our incarnation here is too short to hold grudges. Most importantly, FORGIVE YOURSELF. I love you all. Stay strong and be good to one another.
