This is my last post as a member of the Winter Tribe. It’s going to be short and sweet.
I have loved occupying this space, and seeing my words alongside the beautiful vulnerable words of my sisters. Thank you for having me here, lovely Jenn, and thank you all for reading.
You’ve been with me as I tread the early steps on my path of single mamahood, of independence and of authentic upleveling in my beloved coaching practice. I’m exploring how to be in this new place, and learning daily what comes easily and what does not.
I know with great certainty that feeling my way forward – embodying each new realization – is how navigation happens in this era. I’m not following a formula (um, there is no formula!) or taking someone else’s advice, or relying solely on my ability to think things through. Not this time around. I’m leaning in and listening for whispers, which then lead to clues. I have a trustworthy GPS and I’m using it.
What’s next for me is slowly coming into view, even as I make peace with not knowing. The dance of my unfurling is a lyrical exploration of possibilities. I dance my curiosity, my eagerness, my fear and my love. I trust this dance to take me forward. I know I’ll land safely.
So I extend an invitation to you, by way of saying goodbye. The invitation is to fully embody what’s unfurling in you right now, and to allow it to shape the next chapter of your life. This means listening closely for what’s coming alive, even if it’s a whisper within a deafening sea of distractions. It means tuning into what you value most, and finding ways to honor that. It means turning toward your calling, letting it fill you with strength. And it means refusing to be derailed by fear.
I’d love to know what’s unfurling in you; will you share it here, as I have? Claim what it is that has you by the heart. Tell us how you’re morphing into a more truthful version of yourself. Declare your rightful place at the table. You’re in good company.
As Marianne Williamson so famously said,
We are all meant to shine, as children do. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
So shine, dear one. Unfurl as your own brightest light in this next chapter of your life. We’re waiting.
