Have you ever been on a journey that led to unexpected places and insights? That’s where I am right now.
I’m in the middle of an adventure, one I’ve never been on before. And, as tends to be the case with adventures, it’s shaping up to be all sorts of things bundled into one: Exiting. Scary. Eye-opening. Heart-expanding. Humbling. Beautiful.
The landscape around me is ever-changing, the views are unfamiliar, and there always seems to be a mix of sunshine and shadow – which, in this case, is just right.
So… where the heck is this adventure taking place?
Well, to give you a hint, I can tell you with absolute certainty it’s somewhere you’ve never been. How do I know? Because the location is unique to me.
I’m on an adventure within. It’s like an archaeological dig of the heart.
It started a little while back when I realized I was living on the surface of life – I didn’t know myself as well as I thought I did, or as much as I wanted to. For years I had been carrying a vision of myself as being positive and bubbly, which I am, but that picture started to feel hollow. I could feel there was so much more to me under the surface, and I was ready and eager to explore it. It was time.
So, I’m on an inner expedition. I’m making time and space to discover things I didn’t know about myself, or just wouldn’t allow myself to see. Things like strengths I hadn’t acknowledged, passions I had shoved away because they didn’t fit neatly into a world of “should,” shadow personality traits I was ashamed of, and experiences that were ready to be brought to the surface and healed.
But most of all, I’m digging down to uncover my bright and beautiful inner-light so I can shine it more powerfully on the world.
And you know what I’m finding through this experience? The stuff I’m unearthing – so far, at least – isn’t as scary as I expected. I’m finding that the things I don’t typically like to look at are actually kind of beautiful when brought to the light. And, if I’m honest with myself, those things are just as much a part of me as my positivity.
I’ll share more as the journey progresses, so stay tuned, because amazing things are unfolding… and I’m just getting started.
Now, let’s talk about you. You have an incredible inner light too. Do you feel it?
