There is magic all around if you can see it. I am grateful for the times that I can.
Saturday, a gathering of wonderful women blessed me for my birthday. It wasn't a party, it was a rite of passage into elderhood. When my husband came home and asked me about it, I found it tough to describe what happened. The whole was greater than the sum of its parts, and the parts were pretty impressive!
Then, my friend Teryl sent me a poem about the event. It was perfect.
Teryl's writing inspired my voice. Not just for the celebration, but also for my journaling as a practice for my 52 SpeakStrong Empowerments.
If Teryl had critiqued my writing, it wouldn't have had nearly as much influence on me as reading her poem did. Hearing her poetic voice describe something so meaningful to me, inspired my authentic voice. My writing oozed depth, meaning and inspiration. You can read it if you join us once the Empowerment eAdventure launches.
Thanks to Teryl, to the women who came Saturday, and to you for being part of my increcible journey. Life is sooo good.
And thanks to my hubby who just now thanked ME when I told him I was going to do an extra meditation today. He says it helps us both. I know that, but isn't it fabulous that he knows it, too?
