This last week I was asked for my latest tattoo and I quickly said my compass rose. Then I took a moment to reflect on why I got this tattoo and why it is important to me. I spent many years seeing things that would challenge me on my values, my perspectives and moral compass. I always took a breath and focused on what I know is right for my me, my family and for what I’m going through. I know it hurt a lot to go through these transitions, but it was necessary to get here today. Without an epic journey, life would not be the same (epic), it would be sterile, non feeling, lame, etc.. so I think my journey will be one to capture for a great novel, a great journey that are made for paper books.
Let’s shift. Onto peace inside. Knowing your north star is important, it helps when you feel beat down, weak, full of emotion to remember what you stand for, what it is that propels you into the morning so you can crush your next day. I have to say that knowing my internal peace remains a challenge for me, making sure I remember how to center and get back to “60” is so important for me. I have so much energy, passion, love and feelings that I have to be very aware of how that exits my body. I was reminded this week of this very thing and while it was a good reminder, I had to take a moment and really think about how am I focused on hearing my internal peace, how am I knowing when I am centered so I can achieve and show up the way I want to. I wonder how people can go their whole life without knowing how to center.. I just can’t imagine, but that’s not my quest to solve. Mine is right here, right now, right in front of me. Making sure that I live a life of “Center” and that I know what I stand for.
Shift again? sure why not.. My mind is shifting all over the place. last week I was out at the beach and I one regret is that I didn’t just let GO and really feel the experience for what it was worth.. Meaning listening to the waves, walking in the sand, watching the waves come in.. I do regret not bringing my surfboard as well, but I”ll fix that. getting back.. I didn’t RELAX and really be there and for that I know I need to try it again. I need to get back to CENTER, but also pull from 120 back to 60 to see how it positively impacts my day to day, my influence and my overall well being. (welcome to my personal mega goal).
Shift again? yup.. 2017 was to be a major milestone year and it is not even finished yet. I am looking forward to all the milestones, what it will bring and I need to be better about celebrating them with the right activity to ensure that I remember what an epic journey this has been. Here’s to the next few months of major milestones and keeping myself grounded as I proceed forward through them. #Onward
That’s it for this post, tonight, etc.. I hope you find your peace, love your journey and who knows what the future will hold so keep breathing, be resilient and make sure you take care of your brain, heart, soul, health, peace, karma, faith, etc.. I love you!
