Do the most significant directional changes in our life come about by design or chance? By accident, impulse, peer suggestion or careful consideration? Five years ago, would you have imagined yourself where you are, doing what you are doing and focused on what has your attention today?
What can we truly control and direct and how much do we wish to do of either?
I find myself loosening my hold on the reins, becoming more fluid, choosing now over no and never. Still seeking a home, a safe harbor for my golden years but increasingly content with an interim nomadic lifestyle and lightening the load of possessions. Treading more softly and stretching further.
Daydreaming has lost its allure, replaced by exploring – with enthusiasm and the expectation of delightful finds.
Enjoy the freshness of a new year.
