Who are you? Where are you?
Who am I to share these ideas from my life story? Who cares?
This site is my record — a place to work out past, present, future — a travel log. I hope you find truths in my journey that may be helpful for your own.
Where are you? If you don’t know where you are or where you’re going, that’s ok. Sometimes we’re in a season of wandering, it’s what we’re supposed to do. However, “If you’re going nowhere, any road will get you there.” A map is helpful. At some point, we may realize it’s the wrong map, we’re holding it upside-down, or we need to input a different destination on our GPS.
We all have a story. Chapters of love, loss, pain, victories… it’s not a contest. It’s your story and so are the lessons. What have you learned? Have you been repeating the lesson and it’s time to recalibrate?
Rechoice – name the valuable insight you’ve gained and, if necessary, stop and pivot. Recommit to your plan or embrace a new direction. As one of my friends told me: A do better is better than a do over. Write your story, edit often, and have a good ending.
Regarding the set-up: The seasonal/directional organization of this site is inspired by Bill Plotkin’s “Wild Mind: A Field Guide to the Human Psyche”, published in 2013 by New World Library. The book has helped me organize and hold my thoughts. All photos are my own, unless otherwise noted.
Posts are not necessarily chronological, but sorted by season or direction based on the content of the post. You are now at the center of the compass. Read a description of each season/direction (also inspired from Wild Mind) by selecting from the menu above. I suggest you start in the SPRING/EAST.
