As I look through my livingroom window I see how foggy it is outside this morning. It's a mild day, the snow has been melting and it's quiet, no sign of civilization.
On this last day of the year I'm feeling reflective. Seeing the fog is a reminder that it is time for me to cut through the fog in my life. Time to take steps to help the fog lift, to be able to get clear on where I am meant to go and meant to do. Each of us are meant to do "something". Understand our Genius Zone
I am reminded that I only need to see 2-3 feet in front of me to be able to see my next step. and not be overwhelming concerned about my destination. I have a vision of my great destination. And to be honest there are times I get overwhelmed just thinking about it. St baby steps remove that overwhelm, replaced with excitement and wonder.
What I have learned in the last 10 years since my vision appeared, is that that destination can change. Maybe not where you want to end up, but what it looks like. The journey we planned isn't necessarily the journey we are meant to take.
There may be lessons, skills or experiences that are necessary for us to gain to help us gain clarity on our zone of Genius--our gift to the world-our greatest impact.
Writing is one of those steps I take. Sitting in reflection of my accomplishments, my challenges and the lessons I want to take with me into the new year. That feeling of my beautiful fountain pen in my hand, writing on the smooth thickness of my journal pages, it's an experience I feel in my body. One I can pull up whenever I want it. Enjoying each step along the way of my journey.
Do you have a ritual you have? What steps are you taking to gain clarity on your journey? Will you share those with me?
Wishing you a New Year filled with love, joy and clarity.
