22 Jul the lookout
I feel that even in the blur of summer I am moving in slow motion. This is not a bad thing. I think I’m just in observation mode. I feel like I’m perched up high somewhere on lookout. Carefully, I watch myself walk through my day to day, navigating each step, being aware and careful as to the things that might derail me and correcting my path when I begin to stray. I think I can best describe it as a kind of centering.
I recognize this place of deliberate movement. I’ve been here before; hyperaware of everything around me and how I respond; mind, body, spirit. It’s a good place to find myself every once in a while. It helps me to better understand what is good for me and what isn’t, what brings happiness and what hinders it. I feel like this holding pattern is what I need sometimes to make the best choices for myself and it keeps me in a place of gratitude. It reminds me of what I am doing, where I am going and helps me to follow my biggest dreams even in my baby steps.
I think along the I am Enough path, these kinds of slow deliberate movements help. I think that once you finally flip the switch on any kind of self-actualization that a lot changes, of course, but I also beleive that it’s a daily choice to be there and stay there. I’m not sure there is ever a time when staying present, being totally in tune and in the frame of mind that brings us the most clarity and peace is second nature. Like anything that’s worthwhile, it takes work. This place I’m at feels like that. It’s good, really really good but it’s not easy. The beauty of this kind of effort however is that it’s totally worth it.
I would love to hear your thoughts on where you are and what you struggle with. How does it feel when you hold onto your truth, when you embrace your enoughness, when you are in your power? What changes? What shifts? How do you know you’re making the right moves for you, even when things get tricky?
I feel that with each I am Enough story, I get these answers. I understand the many paths we travel and no matter how Universal this battle of self-worth can be, each person brings their own unique perspective to the journey. I relish that. Kelly Rae Roberts shared her story last week and it was so inspiring.
I am getting more out of the collaboration than I could ever express. It’s been about a year since I made my own declaration and if feels like the right time now that I send out the official invitation:
You are invited to share your story.
A photo, artwork, words, whatever it is that you would like to declare about your enoughness would be an honor. Think about it, consider it, mull it over and let me know if I should leave a spot on the calendar for you. Nothing would make me happier.
