Two weekends of class/workshopping and two study meets have brought home one message loud and clear.
It sits front and centre of my entire life right now and I am so ready to finally embrace it in its wholeness.
Family is important. Even those parts that I have not seen or lived. Especially those parts that I have not seen or lived.
We are connected in more ways than I know or realise.
I am so much more than the sum total of my body, mind and soul. I carry my family with me in ways I am incapable of fully understanding.
In belonging and connecting with this family, I need not lose any part of myself.
I can be connected, even as I grow and move my separate way.
Starting a ritual to acknowledge this and remember it every single day has been on my mind and today I realised it is something I want to do immediately.
I’m not fully sure how or what I want to do as yet. But I’m going to figure something out pronto.
This is gratitude for my family. For generations before and after. For all that we bring and carry with us. For all that people have held so we can move on and ahead. For life, love and this sense of connection.
