When you get to a certain age you can look back and see the journey . . . some of it makes sense. Some of the pain and lessons have enough distance to show the path that they put us on. Some lessons are still revealing themselves as we move through it, forward.
We know intellectually that we aren’t guaranteed any specific amount of time for this journey. For this human experience. When something hits, like this global situation, it shines a light on that. People of any age, stage, pre-existing conditions, or none . . . can come abruptly to the end of their journey. So when we see that up-close and personal it can open another door to our awareness. Awareness of what we are doing and who we are being. Who are you willing to be going forward? Are you willing to take action despite the monkey mind that may show up? It might be comparison or excuses, self doubt or judgements, either-or thinking. It will be your Achilles heel.
It is different for each one of us. Usually when it shows up strongly it actually means you are on to something, peeling another layer of your onion and it is the willingness to continue on in spite of this inner commentary that will enable you to continue on your hero’s journey. Can you do it? Yes! You can. Take it easy, take care of yourself, be patient, loving, kind, gentle to yourself AND keep going. We need you to do what only you can do. Please do it!!! Who are you willing to be going forward?
