|My Writer's Notebooks & Fun Stuff|
I existed for years on a path parallel to my authentic life. Close but not close enough. I stumbled over questions like "What is your favorite color or what color are your eyes?" Seriously! Check out this post from 2009 in my old blog. I can't imagine it either!
I know who I am now and I'm not trying to be someone different. What a journey this has been!
I am living more purposefully. I recently made a commitment to two writer's classes, pressing me to devote time to writing each day. I am not shoving writing to the back burner anymore thinking it can wait because it's not urgent. Writing is important to me so there is value in the time I spend in the practice.
I am living intentionally. This winter I weeded out old stuff from my house, things I don't love or use anymore. I only buy what I love now and of course, books, books, and books!
My OLW for 2015 is "unscripted." Since letting go of the scripts in my head, my life has become more focused. Focused, not inflexible. As I grow in this surprising grace, guilt unclenches it's grasp from my mind and heart.
I am more often choosing joy, spending less time in worry. (I haven't mastered this but I'm learning.)
And my eyes are still blue!
