In a recent post I chose to spill the beans about my battle with mercury poisoning, wherein toxic levels of mercury from fish (and God knows what else) have taken have taken their toll on my physical health and mental capabilities. The journey to reclaiming my total wellbeing is still an uphill challenge but I am happy to feel so much more engaged with LIFE! And that includes my CAREER! (After all, KD ain’t a trust-fund-baby nor lottery winner… plus I love being an entrepreneur!)
Reevaluating the important things in life and what I want to accomplish next though my business as a whole was a recurring effort last year that had me spinning in circles much of the time. It wasn’t until just a few months ago that I felt a new awakening and slow-growing clarity around what I really want NOW and how do things a little differently. Admittedly, this is still on-going, and I’m sure you can dig why… there’s a boatload of mossed-over stuff to sift out when you step back! All this said, I am committed to being an active, connected and (hopefully) inspiring citizen again and look forward to sharing the results both in the virtual and real world. (There are a few surprises just around the corner!) Thanks to everyone who was there for me and who continue to support me! Here’s a little reminder to those who are also going through rough times…
“If you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth will save you.” ~ Gospel of Thomas, the Bible
Our entire lives, we’re consumed with acquiring “the right gear” to survive “the game of life.” We prepare for rough terrain, erratic weather, restless natives, and, of course, limited supplies! Then we create safe havens in which to hide and hoard our gear. It’s always all about “the stuff’ you can “stuff” around you. Yet, when it comes down to brass tacks, the toys and tools aren’t your saving grace. What is…is the “stuff” within you. Gut instincts, a sense of humor, personal faith, the drive to succeed, integrity and the ability to love. Trust that it’s exactly what you need to navigate safely, and your abundant stash will never run out. ~ KD
