I appreciate my inner self mostly when I know that I know without any real fact or material proof. It has to do with a deeper kind of wisdom, the little voice inside each of us that says, “I believe life can be better than this; I am ready to try something different. I am moving forward into the light. Follow the rainbows!
I am living my dream, the last item on my bucket list before I turned 50 list. I have the job I wanted- working at a resort, living in a resort community less than one mile from my favorite cove here in Ko Olina. I am happy! And yet a few nights ago when I hit the pillow to fall asleep-this overwhelming sadness entered my heart. The heart break and the agony was raw and it hurt as if I was living a few years back when my whole world was tossed like a tornado with no warning. I don’t know why these feelings re-appeared that night, but what I have learned through it all was to allow these feelings to stay, to feel them, to surrender and to believe that I am right where I should be at this moment in time. That I have all I need for today. I no longer need to see the top of the mountain to know that every step I take builds character along the way. Character matters!
I am struck by awe when I look at this photo-the men in the water are not turning from this powerful wave they are swimming toward it. They are prepared. They are fearless! When you are presented with a challenge, do you go towards it or do you run and hide?? Do you want to grow, or would you prefer status quo? I say “ride the wave”, so what if you wipe out and eat sand. At least you danced with the wave!
