Daily Om…

I receive a daily communication of beautiful thoughts that often touch me called the Daily Om.  If you aren’t familiar and haven’t signed up you are missing a wonderful chance to stop for a moment in your busy day and reflect.  You can sign up here: http://www.dailyom.com/cgi-bin/userinfo/settings.cgi?subscribe=1

Often, these missives validate my thoughts and feelings or resonate with what is going on in my life.

In late July and early August, I received these two that were like a breath of fresh air.  They reminded me that I should act upon my desire to write and perhaps I should start with my own story…

Peeling Away the Layers
Trees Shedding Their Bark

by Madisyn Taylor

Like a tree our growth depends upon our ability to soften, loosen, and shed boundaries and defenses we no longer need.

So I think I have a mission.  I must open myself up during this upcoming vacation so that I might tell my story and fully integrate my experiences to heal.  No small feat.  Wish me luck…
