On my way out to the beach, I breeze past my laptop sitting on the table. I’ve ignored it so often during this vacation that it doesn’t even call to me anymore.
It’s 4:55 in the afternoon and I’m feeling great. I’ve celebrated the wonderful dream that came to me early this morning by giving myself plenty of space and time to do the things I love.
‘Qatana, I STRONGLY suggest you listen to this. I really want to talk with you about it…and perhaps partner to hold each other accountable.’
This email from my dear friend, Joan, is waiting for me upon my return from a four day retreat. I love Joan, I respect her judgment about what’s worth listening to and I want to support her. So I listen.
I’m in a hurry when I enter the flower shop. I expect to find just the plants I’m looking for, pay for them quickly and get out. Flowers from the garden won’t kick in until March when the first of the daffodils begin to bloom. Between now and those first daffodils I must depend on the florist to decorate my home with flowers – and I love decorating my home with flowers.
We’re on one of our familiar walks along the river, when my husband, Jim, mentions, “I’m thinking of signing up for the Pilates Comprehensive Training.” The comment seems casual, almost off-hand.
The sun shines through the golden leaves and glints off the water. The squawk of a blue heron breaks through the warm air of Indian summer. Our black dog, Zoe, dashes off after a squirrel.
Dear Gifts of Inner Wisdom Follower
You may have noticed a lull in the regular flow of the Gifts of Inner Wisdom Blog. There are times when inspiration for these blogs flows freely and other times when stillness reigns.
The joy I felt in the Inner Wisdom Circle yesterday evening reminded me so powerfully of what it’s all about. For me it’s about people connected in spirit, openly sharing what’s in their heart, discovering commonality, experiencing beautiful journeys and creating benefit for others through the sharing of their journeys, supporting one another – YES! This is what I’ve dreamed of. This is what I love.
