I have been in a strange state of suspended animation, feeling as if my life was on hold and yet somehow rushing past me. The last year has been one of change and uncertainty and I have been holding my breath until the dust settled. Yet all that breath holding left me dizzy and I’ve decided I can’t go on waiting. I have to live and do so without hesitancy and fear. I will be sharing more in the coming weeks, but I’ll leave you below with words from one of my favorite authors John O’Donohue the author of “To Bless the Space Between Us“, “Anam Cara“, and many other works filled with Celtic blessings.
May you recognize in your life the presence, power, and light of your soul.
May you realize that you are never alone,
that your soul in its brightness and belonging
connects you intimately with the rhythm of the
May you have respect for your individuality and
May you realize the the shape of your soul is
that you have a special destiny here,
that behind the facade of your life
there is something beautiful and eternal happening.
May you learn to see your self
with the same delight,
pride, and expectation
with which God sees you in every moment.
