On the one hand it feels like an epic milestone in my life, and on the other hand, the next day was filled with the minutiae of laundry, making breakfast and lunches, tag teaming with my husband to make the morning flow to get the kids to school on time, soccer practice, pick ups, little people coming over to play. Normal life as usual even with this thrilling creative project in process.
I've noticed that, as DELVE progresses into post-production, friends, family and colleagues are either thrilled, inspired, and supportive (which are most) or uncomfortable with my appetite for risk. I also notice that I am learning to stand in the middle and not take it on, either way, just let it flow. We all come from what we know and sometimes, when faced with others, two minds either line up or they don't. Both are ok.
Today I drew an image in my journal of a light orb surrounding my body so as not to absorb projections, negative or positive. As long as I remain wholeheartedly true to the intention of being in service, then I just continue onward, opening deeper, and trusting that my path is unfolding exactly as it will.
A few years ago, in the midst of being completely weathered from living inside the cave of mothering two small children while professionally lost at sea, I was given a book by my mother. It was Don Miguel Ruiz's The Four Agreements, which helped my life begin to transform from tormented anguish. I re-read them a few times today to remind me of what sparked my attention then.
