Shift Happens


One of the most amazing things about life is that in any given moment we can make a shift. We can see things from a new and different perspective.  We can rewrite the story of our life. We can decide that the present is all we have and do our best to let go of what happened in the past, having learned from it, and realize that it’s history. 

Over the past few weeks it has become clear to me that I want some different things in my own life. Now here’s the part where this is going to sound vague. I really don’t know exactly what I’m looking for. For the first time in a long time, I’m okay with that. I’m a planner by nature. I’m starting to notice that even when I don’t plan as much, everything turns out just fine. I’m not even stressed about it. Don’t worry. I’m not up and moving to Tahiti. Though with winter on the way and a world climate that seems so negative, it’s tempting, but not where I’m headed. 

Here’s the hard part. I adore writing and sending out this newsletter to you every week. It is one of the fun things I do. It’s easy for me and I know so many of you love having something to sit with and reflect on. With my decision of shifting some things I’ve decided to stop writing and sending this to you. For the time being. 

It makes no sense that as much as I love writing, my own inner voice has informed me it’s time for a break. But that’s what it said and I always listen.

I’m giving myself this next few months, maybe even more, to not write in this way. I know I will miss sending this out to you. 

You’ll hear from me one more time next week before I take my hiatus. It will be the perfect time to put in a pause. It will be Thanksgiving week in the US. The time we stop to be truly thankful and grateful for what we already have in our lives. 

I need to shift. That’s really all. 

I’m betting that your inner voice tells you when you need to shift too. I hope you listen to it. It contains all the wisdom you need for your life.

See you next week! 

Please share if you know just the perfect person who would like this.
