We came up with this sign for "whole person," I raised my hands over my head and made a circle (sometimes we do that so I am reminded of my quest this year).
Surprisingly, there is a calming affect when I make that circle, I also realized that it was actually a meditation pose which seems like another sign from the universe that I truly need to give meditation a chance.
I have shared with you my state of reinvention, and I am excited to share that I am making progress. I am intrigued about the path that is revealing itself to me professionally, and it feels for the first time in a long time like it will provide me with the balance I need in life to be truly happy.
Personally I am working on opening up and being vulnerable again. It feels good. I'm doing the hard work, the emotional heavy lifting. This journey is part of my life story and being a whole person in the end means loving myself through the difficult chapters and the good ones.
I was listening to Brene Brown, if you haven't heard her TedX talk on Vulnerability it is worth taking the time to hear her out. However, in this conversation she was sharing her beliefs about things you can cultivate (practice) to become a wholehearted person.
These reminded me of the conversation at New Years that I had with my friend, and listening to her was like a little nudge, reminding me of the commitment I made to myself at the beginning of 2013. With the transition from Summer to Fall on Sunday, I am happy that I too am transitioning into the whole person I have always wanted to be.
