more of this

The new year has brought some clarity to me. A wise friend of mine reminded me that clarity was something I was looking for as she gave me a handmade gift with "CLARITY" sweetly written on it for Christmas this year. She has a way of tuning in to the truth and I am so grateful for her friendship. Yes, clarity. Since then I have been pondering what that looks like for me.  I realize I will never be completely clear about everything in this shades of grey world, but I can clear up the signal that runs from my gut to my brain. I can tune in to the station a bit more and just do what feels right. And right now, it feels so right to spend more time outside. Even in the middle of winter, the beach can be a great place to be clear. It can be as simple as that. It also feels right to focus on my own children and family more and allow others to create their own lives, fight their own battles, and win or lose on their own. I am feeling the need to be more available to my husband and children's needs and less mentally preoccupied with others. Making choices to be in community with people that lift me up and strengthen me. Yes, clarity is feeling pretty good right now.

A lovely post. I feel the same way about being with people that lift me up and who I can be "me" around.

And the beach, I am with you a great place to be any time of year.

what's between your gut and your head? - your HEART! Have faith and it will guide you there.......My heart misses the crashing waves, the rhythm of the ocea, the beauty of the sunrise and sunsets. Thanks for reminding me there is Sandy Point out there beyond the outside of our barren forest :)
