January Reflection

I can’t help but to reflect on the fact that I’ve been blogging daily for one month now!  I can't believe it!

When I embarked up on this journey, it was daunting to say the least. The thought of writing something every single day and putting it out in the public domain was intimidating (wait…”was?").  Every single day I post about my life and how consciousness showed up for me that day.  I do it for myself.  I do it for my daughter one day to read maybe.  (I pray she finds consciousness in her life WAY before I did.). And I do it in hopes that maybe one post strikes a chord with just one reader to help them along their journey.

I don’t write about just one topic on which to be conscious, like parenting or spirituality.  I write about whatever life throws at me and how I deal with it in a conscious manner…and sometimes not so consciously.  Point is, it’s just my simple, regular mom, non-celebrity life and how I TRY to bring awareness to any and every aspect.

So, how do I feel about my efforts thus far?  First, I’m proud of myself for not letting my fears stop me.  (This idea was two years in the making, as you may recall from my Intro post.)  Since launch, I’m proud of myself for sticking with it.  It’s not always easy to find the time, but I’m getting better at weaving it into my routine.  I’ve found this outlet quite fulfilling.  So, even though I know I can quit anytime, I don’t see me pulling the plug anytime soon.

You know, I’ve changed A LOT over the past 10 years.  Having a kid made me see the world differently.  Entering my forties made me question life and my purpose and my legacy.  What the hell was I here for?  I mean, seriously, life isn’t repeating the same day over and over and over again, is it?  Of course not.  Life is wonderful and beautiful and scary and eye opening if you choose to participate in a conscious way.  My life is far from perfect, but I can't even imagine being any happier.  Seriously.  I’m participating in life more fully than I ever did before and this blog ensures that I keep doing that.

 Be open to what comes.
