Explore Dream and Discover!

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor.  Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore, Dream, Discover!”   Mark Twain.

As I wrote this today I am taking in this message little deeper these days. I have chosen a course change in my life that feels really good and now feel that I am ready to allow the trade winds to take me in whatever direction is best.

We often get caught up in the storms of life and get set adrift and our first response is to find a safe harbor.   A safe harbor is important for much needed rest and renewal but like the old proverb says : ”You can’t prevent birds of sorrow from flying overhead but you can stop them from building nests in your hair” No nests here!!

Spring is on the way (yes I know it does not look that way :) ) there is something in the air feels like the earth is getting ready for new growth.  When I feel this stir I know that it is time to set sail and step out of my comfort zone again.

My life is always evolving and changing and for the most part I love the journey.  My soul has always needed to continue to grow and learn.  Fear holds me back at times but I am learning to simply move with the fear and make it my ally.

I started a new journey and feel confident that I am ready for the next evolution of my life.  What is stirring in you? What new journey are you ready for? Don’t allow fear to hold you back, just bring it along! Are you willing to set sail and leave the safety of the harbor? As Mark Twain says maybe it is time to  “Explore, Dream, Discover” once again!

Reinventing and Refocusing my Business!

Interesting day, week, month, summer.  It has been awhile since I last wrote.  I have been revisiting my life a lot and just recently started going to our Local Farmers Market to sell some Natural Skin care products and even a natural ECO friendly cleaner.  I knew after this summer that I had to move more into creating whole change in me.

I was focusing too much on my weight and as predicted I gained more.  :) I have known for many years that  my weight up or down was not the problem.  It finally has started to make sense that I am being guided  to reinvent and refocus my life.  I am even changing the name of my company so it all feels fresh.   Right now my company name is Sacred Sharing and although I love this ( and will remain as the name of the women’s circles) , where I need to go comes from a new direction and one morning on the ground meditating on the sunrise I heard the name very clear.  MYSTIC SUNRISE

Each day as the sun rises we get another chance to reinvent our lives!  The mystery of each new day is powerful! It is pregnant with new and exciting possibilities just waiting to be birthed! I have spent a lot of time the last few years concentrating on one single thing and that was my Integrative Coaching business.  I love coaching and will continue supporting women to  reinvent and refocus their lives! But something was missing,  I was leaving a huge part of me out that I needed to look at first.   I have such a creative side that has been stagnant for too many years and has been blocked by this single focus.  My health issues were all in this area the second chakra of the body.  Creativity is a huge part of being a woman.  We all need to give birth whether it is children or ideas.

The plant world once again brought me back to myself but this summer in a deeply profound way.   I love herbs, I have used them for most of my adult life but in more recent years have begun to study them more actively as well as make my own herbal medicine, salves and skin care products.   I realized at my core I have always tried to live as simply and as ECO friendly as possible.  I have been so out of integrity with this passion of mine for too many years now and it was affecting my health and well being.

MY NEW MISSION STATEMENT FOR MY BUSINESS: To empower and inspire myself and people back to the simplicity of nature.  To continue learning so as to provide the healthiest alternatives to today’s chemical based products.  Educate and teach others about natural and ECO friendly choices.   Together we can create a more sustainable and healthier world for the next generation.

Mystic Sunrise; here is to new beginnings!  It is never too late to reinvent ourlives!  What do you need to give birth to?  Today is a great day to begin!

Following Our Dreams, One Step at a Time.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Often we are stuck in our lives because we are afraid to take action towards a dream.   There is a wonderful quote by Confucius (551-479 BCE),

“Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in getting up every time we do.”

It seems as long as recorded history we, as a race of human beings, have often been stuck, unable to move into action for fear of not being successful.    Yet the evidence of so many success stories share one thing in common.  They were willing to fail over and over.   It is actually only when we see “failure” as an opportunity instead; we finally give ourselves permission to move forward.

“Be who God meant you to be and you will set the world on fire!”Saint Catherine of Siena

I heard this wonderful quote this week on TV watching the Royal Wedding of William and Kate.  How fitting that these words would be part of the homily in their ceremony.  Even as we come together in marriage we are still individuals with gifts and talents that are meant to be brought into this world.  Yes having a supportive and loving partner can mirror who we are but we still have 100% responsibility individually to be all of who we are meant to be.

We get caught up in life from time to time, we get so busy that we lose ourselves in others and in life and then forget that there is something very unique in all of us.  This uniqueness needs time to be nourished and fed in order for it to be brought into the world.  We need time to feed our body, mind and our souls.  This opens us up and creates the desire to move in the directions of our dreams.  It gives us the time to reboot and replenish our energy so that we can go back out into the world with that fire to make change and be in service to others.
