Run deep as they say.
I’ve been spending time with still waters.
This isn’t an easy thing, being still. I am usually always in motion. I have a hard time just sitting…and being still…with both my body and my mind.
So when I headed up to the house on Lake Champlain this week with my family, I wanted to practice this stillness.
The summer is just about over for me. I return to school next week. Yet this has been an extraordinary summer in so many ways and I wanted to ponder it and how it has seemingly transformed my life.
There have been many changes. Changes that I have learned from and grown from. Changes that I now see as a blessing and a gift.
These changes have brought the need to adapt and adjust my beliefs, my feelings and my thinking.
I have shifted and revised my needs and desires in this life. New and exciting shifts that take me into unchartered waters. Out of my routine and in unknown directions.
I have dived deeper into my recovery. Working on the hard stuff that has been a part of me for as long as I can remember. Forgiving others and forgiving myself. Moving through and not around the challenges and obstacles I have faced.
I have rekindled my faith and my spirituality. Letting go of those things I have held onto so tightly and opening myself up to the abundance and beauty of life.
As I sit in stillness on the shores of this beautiful lake…I feel a sense of renewal. A rebirth and an awakening. Anything and everything is possible.
Still waters do run deep.
