Suncatcher reflection on wall

I feel like my brain has shifted into extreme high gear these days. So many ideas!

Somehow I’ve re-connected with my core and its a fabulous feeling. After spending the past few years reacting instead of acting I’m once again in touch with the clarity and colors of my imagination.

That’s not to say that those years were wasted, by any means. It takes alot of energy to go through all of the transitions that I did. But it’s wondrous to have that energy available again and to know more than just brief moments of joy.

This week I did an exercise that I’ve often used with clients but never tried myself. I created a “mind map” of all of the jobs I’ve held and programs that I’ve developed in order to get an overview of what I’ve actually accomplished. Wow. I’ve never truly “owned” all I’ve done; I’ve only focused on the steps in front of me. When I look at the whole picture, I’m amazed. I remember what it took to survive some of those scenarios and the grit required to birth some dreams.

I’m proud of myself, but more than that, I realize that I’m not finished. Just because I took a big detour in order to deal with Life doesn’t mean anything other than I’m older and definitely know more than I did four years ago.

I can see now that I bought my 64 Box of Crayolas because I’m ready to use all the colors again. 🙂

    Ah, but it wasn’t a detour at all. 😉
