"Go at it boldly, and you'll find unexpected forces closing round you and coming to your aid." ~Basil King
As I am working on all the things I have swirling in my head that I want to create and share there are times I wonder just what the hell I think I am doing. I'm smart enough to know that I don't know everything, curious enough to want to keep learning more and feel my purpose telling me to keep going you're on to something here. I'm no expert, well I am expert enough to realize that I am no expert, but I certainly have lived some life and learned some shit and realize there is so much more to learn.
I think life is fluid, like the ocean, a river or a stream. When the water runs into an obstacle, it finds a way to flow around, between or over whatever lies in its path. I aspire to be more like the ocean I so love and stay fluid, learning all I can to go around, between or over whatever keeps me from my path and purpose.
I have a curiosity about life, about people, about how they arrive where they are when I meet them or hear their story. There is so much wisdom in a life that I love to hear. Many don't realize just how much wisdom they possess, thinking that everyone must know what they know, have the experiences that are similar. What I have learned is that everyone has their own unique journey and while many may have had similar experiences they are still unique to the person who has lived the life. I think there are too many people who don't realize how powerful their stories are, how much connection and understanding can come from sharing those stories of joy, pain, sorrow, excitement, love, loss, gain and vulnerability. Not everyone is ready to share with others, not ready to ride the vulnerability track, some because they just haven't come to the space where they can, others because no one has bothered to ask them and really hear them...
I want to create a space for the hearing, the seeing, the supporting, the sharing, the celebrating and the uplifting. It's slowly coming together and it's more expansive and amazing than I ever imagined in my head. Read the Woman of the Week series and the first Monday Muse from this last Monday. These are just the tips of the iceberg of the depth of wisdom that lives out there waiting to be brought into the light.
Be Bold... I'm working on it.
