THE PATH IS WIDE ENOUGH FOR MORE

Today, with a curious heart, expect the unexpected and watch the journey of the day unfold in a whole new colorful way.
 
I’ve been presented with hundreds of unexpected opportunities in my 56 years. But never have I fully recognized that every single thing I am presented with has an opportunity for incredible learning and growth. Had I really understood this I wonder how many times I missed something that could have enhanced my life’s journey and actually expanded who I am in this bright big world? As it should be, I’m not too upset about these past misses because I know that what was true for me then is no longer true for me now. Today my perspective has shifted and expanded and I have a curious willingness that is far more invigorating and incredibly inviting.
 
Whether the unexpected hits me over the head or walks up slowly right beside me I no longer recognize it with a fearful closed heart. My heart from days gone by, the one that pushed away the unexpected and then carefully built a protective barrier around it for security, has thankfully moved on. Fearful barrier building never served me well to begin with. And oh how much energy it sucked out of me. Today the task at hand is more about the best way to navigate through the many unpredicted surprises each day presents me with. I am finding my way through all the unexpected twists and turns with combinations of grace, kindness, understanding, love, joy, peace, humility and compassion. Honestly I am noticing it just plain feels better to do it this way. The objective for me is to broaden who I am rather than constrict who I am. I want to be the best most passionate me I can be. I want to be a woman on purpose, strong and confident. With a wholehearted faithfulness and a willingness to explore the world around me differently I am on my way. Please know this path is wide enough for more of us. 

Today, with a curious heart, expect the unexpected and watch the journey of the day unfold in a whole new colorful way.
