Closer by Goapele

Since adulthood, my birthday has always been a big deal to and for me. I plan rituals around it and really try to work hard to assess and reassess where I am and where I want to be. But this year was different. Without any major work, I naturally felt renewed. I am sure it helps that I spent 5 days in one of the most beautiful places in the world with some lovely people, but perhaps it’s also because this entire year has been about taking better care of me, honoring me, (re)finding and (re)defining me. Being me. I returned from vacation on last Wednesday, but have continued to feel that same renewal, replenishing and rejuvenation.  So I want(ed) to capture the moment of what it feels like to commit to being in my “happy place” and to do the work to reside there continuously regardless of what life brings.

As I look ahead, I continue to see my dreams coming to fruition. I see my efforts, time and energy focused in the direction of my aspirations. I see and acknowledge all the wonderful and loving people who surround me each day. I finally have a clear vision of my gifts, talents and dream career – it feels amazing to be on my way. I am in the absolute best shape of my life and although I have more work to do, this feels great!!!

10 days post my Earth-Day I just stopped by to say I am thankful for life, lessons, new beginnings, growth, change, love, laughter, friendships and … rediscovery ;-).
