just catching up ...

Hey, remember me? Wow, I feel like I just slipped down a rabbit hole and out of sight this past week. Just been working late nights, juggling several concurrent projects, meetings, business requirements, use cases, wireframes, deadlines - busy, busy. I am really loving my job! This is the kind of stuff that makes me feel vibrantly alive in my work, engaged, fully present, jazzed to come to work every day. I feel so blessed!

But I've really missed visiting my favorite blogs, catching up with everyone, enjoying each person's stories. Reading my faves can lighten my heart ... or fill me with laughter. They can bring a tear to my eye as the writer reveals a vulnerable humanity and I nod in recognition of having experienced my own version of their story. I learn about lives in places I've never experienced before, and about experiences that I will most likely never encounter in this lifetime. Through these blogs, I've "been" to Paris and Guam ... been mesmerized by Madonna shrines in Tuscany ... I've "heard" the laughter and felt powerful love in a lively household with five daughters and their remarkable mother ... I've felt a kinship with another single mother raising a daughter, just as I did ... I've enjoyed time on a ranch and on a military base. I feel so blessed!

This weekend, I just had to recharge my batteries after last week's full immersion into work. I did little more than some light housekeeping and some yoga. Today was a glorious day! Weather was in the low- to mid-70s, clear skies and sunshine. Earlier, as I left my place, I had to smile, seeing a young couple riding bikes and eating ice cream. Just soooo Huntington Beach! I count my blessings at being able to live in a place that suits me so well. I feel so blessed!

There's something in the air right now, a sense that change is on the horizon. I've had the strongest sense of anticipation all week, as if something wonderful is just around the corner. I feel a shift is about to happen. I imagine myself standing on tiptoe, straining to see what it could be. I'm already feeling so blessed and don't want for anything, so I can't begin to imagine what could lie ahead to add to my already-overflowing cup of blessings.

I was happily surprised when one of my good friends dropped me a note earlier, mentioning that she's sensing a change coming in her life. Coincidence? I wonder if others feel it, that anticipation of a shift beginning in their lives, alongside the current of change happening in the world. May all these shifts be positive and loving changes that enhance and bless the lives of all on and of this planet.

Namaste

Good morning, Rose...and happy hump day! I hope there IS something wonderful headed your way. I've sort of had the feeling that I'll be turning a corner this year, which is gratifying. On to the next step and all. We'll see what life has in store! That's the fun of it, right? The anticipation of it all. It's good to have you back after your brief absence. I'm glad your new job is working out for you.

Hi friend. You're a sensitive soul so I'm not surprised that you are in tune with shifts like these. I think it's also the time of year! I can't wait to see what's on the horizon for you!

How do you do this Rose? How do you seem to know what is going on in my head and heart too? You write so eloquently of many, many things that I think and feel too. You have such a gift - You ARE a gift. I hope your sweet days ahead are filled with joy and light.
xo,
