It has been a long time, friends…
I have been plowing forward, one foot in front of the other, as our family has navigated this large boat of economic challenge. There is light at the end of the tunnel with opportunities this week. We will see.
In the face of challenge, I have been keeping busy instead of sitting and dwelling and worrying and being irritated because Mr. Z and I have been in one another’s space more than usual.
I found designer Kelee Katillac who started when she really had nowhere to turn. She happened upon a broken down chair and felt common ground. She put everything she had into that chair. The process was healing and so her business began. When you don’t know what else to do, create. Works for me:) Continuing on the path to our best self instead of camping out on a safe plateau is scary stuff.
Marianne Williamson said it this way:
” Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, “Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?”
Actually, who are you NOT to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated frm our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
Let the liberation begin one step at a time…one chair at a time perhaps:)
