Beginning the 2nd half of 2023 is indeed a time to reflect.
- What have I accomplished thus far?
- How do I feel about where I am this time of year in my life?
- Is there something else I want to be or do before this year ends?
- What have I to celebrate?
The world and everyone in it are undergoing a massive transformation. Some of the changes can be explained, while some changes feel unprecedented and unpredictable. However, the fact remains that the start of the 2nd half of the year is marked by destruction, disruption, and disillusion that calls for each of us to reflect, re-evaluate, reset, and re-envision.
Furthermore, people feel pain, rage, loss, trauma, despair, and more…
Efforts to fight off, hinder or stop the slow, tortuous demise of centuries-old systems and structures of evil, also known as white supremacy, injustice, enslavement, genocide, exploitation, institutional racism, sexism, financial, educational, health, and housing inequities, continue.
“Sometimes letting things go is an act of far greater power,
than defending or hanging on.”– Eckhart Tolle
We’ve come to a time of reckoning, unlike anything many of us have ever experienced or even dreamed possible in our lifetime. Whether resisting the inevitable, releasing the old, familiar or comfortable, or welcoming the new, yet to be created, formed, or defined, it’s transformation time!
As I reflect, regardless of appearances, I’m choosing to be in gratitude. I’m grateful for:
- ongoing connection and communication with family and friends,
- camaraderie and support in spiritual, business, and women’s communities,
- opportunities to learn and develop new business skills,
- art, business, civic and cultural groups that offer live and on-line access for people to participate in classes, forums, concerts, events…
Moving forward, I believe it would be helpful to connect and share our gratitude, then reflect and recommit to our intentions and aspirations for the remainder of the year. I’m happy to facilitate a gathering to do so together. Please Join Me!
