Fall has come to Colorado. Each gust of wind brings a flurry of leaves to the ground. I'm (reluctantly) reorganizing my closet, sending summer dresses to the back, moving my sweaters so they're front and center.
I also just celebrated a birthday, which alongside the changing season, always incites introspection. I've been thinking a lot about the next 5-10 years of my life. About passion. The pursuit of a joy filled life. I've recently (in the past six months or so) taken up a regular meditation practice again (something that had fallen by the wayside with the demanding onset of motherhood).
We live in a crazy, fast paced world. As the mother of two young children, as an artist, as a wife, there is very little time for quiet.
That's where the answer are though--the whispers of your soul.
In the stillness.
I've been getting up 15 minutes earlier than the rest of my household to steal a few private moments with my breath, my soul and my God.
This practice, this space, helps me step outside of the repetitive minutiae of everyday life. To reconnect with myself. To lean into my intuition and find trust in my inner voice.
Amid this stillness, I found the courage to make a big decision. I have something to share with you--and I can hardly wait!! Just a couple more days...
