The River

This has been as relaxing a day as I could possibly have. I feel like I’ve been moving in slow motion – and I’ve liked every minute of it.

Part of that has been dictated by my back, which is getting better but still hurts, especially if I’ve been sitting for more than 5 minutes. That means getting out of the car is always interesting.

At any rate, enough about my back. Abby and I had a nice walk – two actually – both to the river. This afternoon we went to Nanaimo River Park and she had the best time, spending all sort of happy moments lying or sitting in the shallow water. She’s still wet and I don’t hear one word of complaint about it. She has also had an enormous bone to chew on: yup – happy dog.

I keep being amazed at how many people I’m connecting with: people I haven’t seen for so long and every meeting is all about happy and hugs. Feeling pretty darn blessed about that.

I’m also finding myself quite teary every now and then – and not in any sort of a bad way. In fact, this occurs generally when I see or hear or read something inspiring and joyful. I find myself easily moved – so fully of emotion that it spills out.

If I’m struggling with anything these days it’s a question of purpose. When I was younger, I never really probed into it very much: I was set on moving up in my career and then later, defining something bigger. Now, in this new place, I wonder. I have only vague ideas about purpose and reason for being and the future. By vague, I mean I see love and caring and connection and hopefully, inspiring – but nothing concrete. I obviously don’t see the “younger” goals – raising a family etc.

Perhaps my question is, “How do I make my mark in the world?”

Do I even need to think about that? Is it enough to just live the best life I can, looking for opportunities to make a contribution? Just live authentically and trust that if I approach life from a heart-centered place, the universe will provide?

I find myself leaning into this void – this place of trusting what comes next – perhaps trusting the power of the Law of Attraction.


That’s a good work for me right now.
