Recently I have been reflecting more and more on what really matters to me.........
During this uncertain time, with so much changing, I have felt ungrounded and at times very lost and alone. These are natural feelings, waves that pass through my ocean that I practice meeting and being with. Sometimes with grace and ease, other times with fire and contention. Some days I can surf these waves and other times I will be lost at sea for what feels like an eternity.
It's all part of the aliveness and life that is here.
And so I keep returning to what is it that matters most?
When I listen, when I really allow the sand to settle and to feel into my heart what I hear my soul whisper is LOVE.
In the end, I don't think much else matters. I think looking back on my life one of the questions that will come to is, "How well did I love?"
Did I PAUSE and behold the wonder and mystery of my life, the here and now?
Did I let myself be happy? This one is big for me.
Was I really there for the hug from the ones I love? Did I lean into the joy?
Was I willing to fall in love with my life, fully, intimately, exactly as it is?
Did I let people matter to me, did I allow myself to care deeply about this life and the people in it? And then allow my heart to be broken open because I risked it being seen?
Was I willing to take risks? Be vulnerable? Be messy? Be wrong?
Did I share my wild heart?
Did I travel my inner wilderness?
How well did I love?
I invite you to reflect as well, in your own life.
What matters most to you?
Our world has changed, and the future is very uncertain.
It is a powerful time to sit with yourself.
You with You.
What matters most?
