(Found in the July 2012 issue of of O Magazine.)
I’ve spent the last 6 months doing some pretty deep soul searching. I find that this type of internal exploration always results in decisions that have to be made. When I saw this graphic I couldn’t believe how perfectly it captured how I’ve been feeling since the beginning of the year. I hope sharing it has resonated with some of you too.
And speaking of, what better time to thank you for reading. I’ve been so blessed by people (who aren’t my direct and obligated relatives) coming to the blog, reading what I have to say, and commenting. It’s so humbling to know that you’re out there and you’re reading this and that you want to continue doing so. I cannot begin to thank you in all the ways I wish I could.
Ah! This made me cry, it is so spot on. Need to do some soul-searching…
Awww, well good luck!
I totally feel you! I just starting blogging here at WP and I can’t believe it took me so long to get here. I’m really loving the community and atmosphere of WP. So happy to be here and I really think its going to give me the PUSH I need to get things moving on my blog, website, and shop! Thanks for your posts! In the next few days I’m going to be going back and reading as many as I can! So far I’ve loved your blog!!
Thanks so much for the kind words and good luck!
Soul-searching is hard but important work. Heart vs. head has always been a battle for me. Here’s hoping we both find some answers…
Thanks and good luck!
I appreciate you and your blog so much. This posts speaks to me. 2012 has begun with some major changes. Changes that were best for my husband and I but difficult for some people. They are all part of a master plan but the baby steps to get there feel huge. My head can talk me in and out of anything. My gut however? It knows me, If I simply listen, it knows.
You’re so sweet. Thanks for reading! I totally agree, my gut knows what’s up.
I think there’s a lot of people soul-searching these days. A slight silver lining to all the global mess of this age. In the end, the contemplation (and action) are always better than complacency and stagnation.
I totally agree, even when it’s the tough choice and/or out of your comfort zone.
