A friend and mentor recently sent me an email which I just discovered in my inbox. In it, she asked, “How are you, Angie?” That question can be such an empty question, one that gets asked over and over and without much care as to what the answer is. However, I know her well enough to know that she was looking for a deeper answer than, “Good.”
I clicked reply, took a deep breath, opened up to the space of what really wanted to be said and began writing. I’m going to share the response because in just a few words, it sums up what I’ve been feeling lately but haven’t been able to write (due to ongoing computer issues). I feel so… full… and I want to share it with you…
I stood in the middle of my life in the middle of my week in the middle of the hallway in the middle of my school with tears threatening to spill over the invisible dam in my eyes as gratitude, love and appreciation swelled within me. It was just some random moment in the middle of mundane activities, but the stunningly delightful joy was so intense, sudden and unexpected that all I could do was breathe and be with it as swarms of students coursed around me, oblivious to the fact that I had, somehow, crossed through the veil into heaven right then and there.
I am SO in love with what I am creating in my life. I am SO loving the beauty, the magic and the miracles that are abounding everywhere around me and in everyone with whom I am crossing paths. I am loving the opportunity to submerge myself more and more into the creative, lyrical, flowing aspect of who I am and I thank God with every single breath for the moment He took me by the hand, opened my eyes and gave me a taste of who I really am.
Thanks for sharing in my journey, friends. Thank you for reading my blog posts, commenting on them and spending time here perusing my website. Thank you for SEEING me and thank you for bringing such richness to my life.
