Gratitude. Man am I grateful. I look in the mirror and absolutely giggle at the woman who is reflected back at me. Many times in this profound life journey have I stood in front of a mirror and marveled at who stared back, each time it’s a miracle, each time I have felt so grateful for how far I’ve traveled, and this time is no different. However! I feel nothing short of bliss bubbling from the inside out these days. It’s sort of like I found this burnt out light bulb, that I didn’t even know was there, and I put in a 250 Watt-er!

So much has shifted – in me, around me, all revealing this magnificence I feel is radiating out of me. I truly feel like the lotus.

Since I feel like the best of me has finally risen out of the muck, I have been letting myself shine.

Despite only having finished up to Day 22 of #trust30, I know this project has shone a light on many, many things that really were ready to be explored.

Day 14 Alternative Paths by Jonathan Fields

When good is near you, when you have life in yourself, it is not by any known or accustomed way; you shall not discern the foot-prints of any other; you shall not see the face of man; you shall not hear any name; the way, the thought, the good, shall be wholly strange and new. – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Consistent daily action is only a virtue when bundled with a willingness to remain open to the unknown. In this exercise, look at your current quest and ask, “What alternative opportunities, interpretations and paths am I not seeing?” They’re always there, but you’ve got to choose to see them. {Click here to see Jonathan’s full prompt.}

I choose to see them! I say yes whenever it resonates. DO.IT.NOW.

This has been one of the most powerful tools/lessons I’ve afforded myself during this 30 day writing (creating) challenge. I have seen in far too numerous ways how I, lil’ ol’ me, has been the very thing that has stood in my way.

So with encouragement and enthusiasm from some dear friends including some work I’m doing with the kick-ass Kerilyn Russo, I am getting outta my head and into my body. Thinking less, doing more. Being spontaneous. Daring myself. DAILY.

That brings me full circle to my gratitude. I see how it’s all connected. Being in my body, and doing, and daring, has been the very thing that lit that 250 watt bulb.

In New York, dare ya!
