I'm on a Journey.

Friday, June 20, 2014

I'm on a journey.

It started out that the intent of my journey was to downsize, minimize and reprioritize, myself, my home, my career, my life...not my family...because I realized quite soon enough that in growing young adults, the best thing I can do for them is to stay out of the middle of their journeys and allow them to choose their own paths to follow.

My husband, on the other hand, well...that's another journey entirely and one that I've not quite conjured up the energy to embark upon. Yet, in time, it is a path that will need to be tended to and explored, as well.

I'm on a journey.

My home is no longer my home. In a few short weeks, it will soon belong to another family, which is good because this is a lovely house and its rooms need to be filled with laughter, children and animals, once again. I will miss this house and what it meant to me as our home, but I'm ready to move on, I truly am...however....I don't know where it is I'm to move on to.

I'm on a journey.

I was fortunate to have several careers in the first part of my life and now, I'm searching for the one that I'm hoping will provide fulfillment during the second half of my life. I'm in search of that one thing I can devote myself to that will make a difference in this world, that will help me to understand and fulfill my purpose and one that will allow me to live authentically. I've no idea what that career path should be. I have a clearer sense of what it means to now close the door on a chapter of my life that wasn't working in order to pursue a new one. It's not so much the fear of not knowing what to do's the fear that I won't figure out what that next step should be before it's too late.

I'm on a journey.

To live for me. To live my own life. To be true to me. To engage in and fully embrace what matters to me. To not be afraid to show love and vulnerability to others. To define and follow my own success rather than someone else's definition of what that should be.

I'm on a journey.

To find my passion. To do as Wayne Dyer suggests--to not die with my music still in me.

I'm on a journey.

To find forgiveness. To forgive.

I'm on a journey...

    I love the image and think it is one so many of us never recognize - the journey is NOT only about one thing, it is about LIVING AND LOVING AND MOVING FORWARD THROUGH LIFE.
