Hindsight & Letting Go of Outcomes

It is easy to see in hindsight how the events in life led us to where we are today. That’s the logical way to look at life’s progression. Yes, hindsight is 20-20, if you’re willing to look objectively.

The Path Opening to Increasing Light

The Path of Increasing Light

The first day of June—the summer solstice month—brought a renewed sense of inspiration to me. I awoke at 3 a.m. with my mind moving in many directions for at least an hour. After my morning walk, the energy had organized itself into inspiration and ideas. I was able to sit down and let the creativity flow into several pages of thoughtful concepts that could be fleshed out at a later time. The flow that I experienced was completely organic, and one of the concepts that came to me explained why this occurred.

Is It Okay to Be Okay With Not Knowing?

Gratitude for the Beauty of the Journey

As many of us do, for many years I grappled with living with not knowing—what will I do for my next career, what is my destiny, what is my calling, how can I do something I love and make a lot of money at the same time, what do I want to do, what do I love to do, what brings me joy, what is fulfilling to me?

It’s funny, because I actually love knowledge! I love to learn, to be enlightened, to understand, to be amazed, to investigate, to gather information, to be let in on secrets of life and more. Yet, knowing and knowledge are not one and the same. Knowing, to me, is a mind game, a human “need.” People think they need to know all sorts of things in order to be okay, safe, comfortable and happy. They want to know what will happen next, how they can control outcomes, what their roles in life should be, what they are meant to be doing, and much more.

Floating vs. Authentic Flow

Floating vs. Flow

Floating may seem nice, but you may not be going anywhere.

The gift of perspective can, at first, seem like a hindrance. But when you are pulled out of a situation, even temporarily, you can see it more clearly.

While I was learning WordPress to create my new blog site, I was enjoying both the learning and the creative processes. I know I felt calmer and was enjoying the flow, but it wasn’t until that flow was interrupted that I realized how different this was for me.

Before embarking on this new journey, I was working for several months on writing an intensely complex science and business application for a consulting client. I was using many of my left-brain analytical and writing skills from my years of science and business education and experience. For some reason, which I couldn’t really put my finger on at the time, I felt drained at the end of each day.
