While wandering through a forest last week, I was struck by the lovely shadows created by the light. So mesmerizing.
To me, shadows suggest mystery and intrigue. And life is all about that…we truly never know what might happen next. The uncertainty can be quite unsettling at times, as our human aspects prefer predictability and routine.
But I suspect that our true selves, our soul selves, love the excitement of the unknown. I remember that thrill of excitement as a child, especially in the carefree summer months. Awakening each morning with the anticipation of adventure and fun, long before I burdened myself with perceived responsibilities.
In my heart of hearts, I know that life is not designed to be drudgery and obligation, yet it’s so easy to get caught in that loop.
I'm very grateful for the reminder of mystery and excitement. And I’m so glad it’s never too late to recapture the spirit of adventure…
