Hey there beautiful reader!
As usual, I am feeling the love for my fellow human as I rise before the sun, to take up watch at one of my favorite spots along Daytona Beach.
Ironically, it is a pretty barren stretch of the beach. If you aren’t paying attention that is. It is located along one of the popular tourist sections of the beach, however if you get there early enough it’s mostly locals only, and the occasional vacationer watching the sunrise.
It is one of the older beach accesses that has large wooden poles sunk into the sand that create a divided barrier between the driving allowed portion of the beach from the walking only section that runs behind a strip of hotels leading to the boardwalk and pier. The poles happen to align with Seabreeze Blvd, running east and west, dividing the north portion of the beach from the south and in a way have created a life size sundial.
It is this exact set of pilings that is the very reason I choose to go there so often. I love watching the sun’s movement over the course of the year. You can easily track the sun in conjunction with the poles and follow its journey all year long.
In the fall and winter, the sun moves further south of the poles and rises later as the days get shorter, then it slowly starts it’s journey back again, with the sun rising earlier and days getting longer.
Every year, I watch the sun’s beautiful journey and as I watch the journey, I journey with it. A little older, yet still excited for each new sunrise, hopefully a better person, more loving and surely wiser than the year before.
Which leads me to an observation…
Much like the sun,
Don’t be afraid to start over, AGAIN!
This time you are not starting from scratch.
You are starting from experience!
So much truth is summed up in those few sentences…and…I am so grateful to have come to this realization.
I have been learning all my life. We should all be learning, all the time! We should all feel our world expand every time we learn something new. As I have expanded, I have learned to explore my inner landscapes to better know and accept myself.
My spirit of exploration and discovery has helped me grow, as I take on new perspectives about all of life. I also have learned what is important to me to carry forward, and which parts are okay to let go of!
Through this knowledge and relationships with the world, myself and others – I have learned how to be a better friend, partner, child, parent…and all around human being!
Plus, my spiritual exploration has deepened my hope and faith. I can see for myself that my experiences afford me so much insight as I start journeys, not for the first time but AGAIN!
It’s like I have the Cliff Notes version to LIFE and get to cut right to the front of the line!
Throughout the years, I have walked many paths. Yet my exploration enriched my walk and added so much depth and meaning to my life. So much so, I now have an unshakeable hope and faith that all my journeys start from a place “knowing.”
…and guess what? This holds true for you too!
Don’t underestimate the leg up your life experiences provide you!
You get to travel your journey with the expertise that allows you to be smarter, more intuitive, thoughtful, empathetic and most of all, create a path that is more fitting to you and what you are looking for…and what you want out of life!
Embrace this and don’t ever think starting over means you are starting from scratch!
You have a whole lifetime of experiences to build from.
…and now you have an opportunity to create your path with intention.
• Be excited
• Be Better
• Be loving
• Be wise
This is Your Journey and Your Way!
As always…Go in love,
