I was thinking about my post yesterday, and reflecting on a conversation I had with a loved one. I really like yesterday’s post… it speaks to one of my truths… and yet this morning it felt incomplete.
As mentioned yesterday, I am a work in progress. As I thought about the post I wondered if it showed the whole picture. None of us is an island. Yes, I do a lot of self-reflection and I try to hold myself accountable wherever possible. But I also have a lot of help. I have wonderful friends and family who also operate on the principle of “If you see something, say something,” and I try to stay open to their input. We have an agreement: they will speak up and I will listen. And vice versa. If that relationship isn’t present, then honesty, authenticity, and true connection isn’t really possible.
Ultimately we are all responsible for ourselves, but gracefully we can have these wonderful and beautiful individuals (human and non-human, woof woof) along the way to help us, and at times guide us, if we let them. I can’t imagine where I would be without my wonderful guides. I’ve found that when I’ve stayed open, they will appear. I don’t believe in magic, but I do believe in human connection. I just wanted to make sure that I acknowledged its power and beauty, particularly in moments of change of transformation.
