Well, my old backpack died after 13 years of climbing mountains, going to swim with dolphins, and chasing rainbows in Hawaii. It’s the beige backpack. I’m thinking of all the people whom we’ve taken on Wide Awakening Adventures and program trips (including you!)
Honestly, letting it go was hard as I happily remembered being with Cathy in Bimini, Vikki in Italy, Nika in Asheville, Amy in Abaco, Jenny in Uxbridge, and so many more special moments. That backpack was a constant companion for all of it. When I threw it in the trash, I really felt I should have a ceremony, SO I DID!
It feels like everything is up to leave this year … clearing the decks with the Winter Solstice, Jeshua’s birthday coming, New Year celebrations, and all.
I invite you to start planning for how you’ll let go of the old, so you can bring in the new.
Don’t underestimate how powerful this time of year can be.
LOTS OF SPACIOUSNESS IS REQUIRED
I am taking 30 minutes every 2 hours, just to breathe and connect. Know that you are not alone.
Even our bags sometimes have to change! For you, maybe it’s your computer, your clothes, your career, or perhaps one of many other things that are due an upgrade. Just say Thank You! when it occurs.
It’s that time of year. Have grace and create space for yourself, while saying a gentle thank you for all that’s happening for you.
And lovingly celebrate everything that’s served its purpose and is now ready to leave!
P.S. Get and Stay Connected to Soul Family in our Agents of Awakening Community!

You can, too!
“It’s a space that has it all – love, support, acceptance, connection, safety to be vulnerable and share our truest selves. If I’ve gone into survival mode, it’s a place for me to be reminded of my essence and get back into thriving. We get to be on this journey of expansion together, which is amazing for this recovering lone wolf.”
