I tend to go slow,
ever slightly dipping a toe.
Rarely rolling full out,
is it all right
or am I tight?
Doing the due diligence,
leaning heavily on Universal Intelligence.
Looking for flow;
getting to the Know;
hearing the Soul.
Letting it marinate,
low heat, slow pace-
this Taurus’ way.
them trying to me re-arrange,
and cast shadows of deep doubt.
“Way too slow, G.
You need to heed–
gotta move, gotta now go!
Don’t you know
life’s too short-
here one minute,
the next, poof, abort.”
I am me.
Please let it be.
Don’t need more anxiety.
The Birth will come…
when fully ready.
To each, their own.
We sing our unique songs-
some short & fast,
others slow & long.
No right, no wrong.
No longer will I do only as told;
I will, instead, endeavor in all ways to be Bold.
No longer will I relent to your perspective on what is deemed art;
I will, instead, succumb only to the rhythm and vision of my own Heart.
No longer will I heed passively to what feels and sounds to me utterly absurd;
I will, instead, be Heard and not part of the herd.
No longer will I merely accept what is;
I will, instead, search, dig deep and extract from within for without what is authentically His.
Your definition of “success” I will choose to categorically reject;
For, you see, I am
now and forever more
I watch O, J. Lo and the Queen Bee
My heart swells with envy and boundless possibility
I yearn for uniquely Me bits of what they manifest:
Abundance, self-actualization, adventure, creativity
Big, fat, juicy lives – nothing less
Lives lived relatively
They – and other Souls of their ilk – will depart
With nary their songs left in the Heart
No what if, little – if any – regrets
Just a deep sense of giving life their very Best
Leaping to fly
That is a Life well-lived.
Today, Tuesday 1 July, marks 2014’s halfway point – a milestone, a time to slow down a bit and reflect: where and who have I been these past six month and where am I intentionally and consciously going in the next six months. So, here goes…
The first half of the year was all about others – my family and my work. Two big events defined the first six month of 2014: my sister’s wedding and a fundraising gala for work. It was quite a juggling act as both demanded so very much of me and, in turn, I was driven to give so much of myself – as is my wont, I tend to delve in with heart, mind, body and Soul. Both events were (by God’s Grace) smashing successes. Yay! The price to me (a confirmed – and proud – introvert): I enter the second half of 2014, utterly exhausted in heart, mind, body and Soul.
Thus, the second half of the year will be – really, it has to be – predominantly about Me! In the midst of the busyness that 2014: chapter one presented, I quietly celebrated the (seemingly sudden) coming of age 45! I have reached the midpoint of my life! Whoa! Where am I going? Who do I wish to be? My words of guidance for 2014 are receptivity and decisiveness. I decisively declare 2014 to be The Year of receiving Boundless Miracles. This requires presence, my full attention to what is transpiring internally and the resultant external cues. I need to be in the here now. The second half of the year is less about others and more about me, so that I can then present/offer my very best Me to the World. That is the intention and the goal. So, it is written, so it will be done.
