To Listen.

It’s been a while…

I spent the first few weeks here observing my surroundings, taking it all in. Inspired by the beauty of this city and the feeling of change I found myself writing quite a bit. I seemed to have a million feelings and a million things I wanted to talk about. Once the excitement settled, my thoughts started to shift. What am I going to do with all of these new surroundings, with these new opportunities and new connections? How are you going to go about everything? How are you going optimize your time?? I suddenly found myself under so much pressure. After good conversations with good people, I’ve realized some things about myself. Some beliefs which have perhaps created limitations in my life over the years. Depending on the direction of the sunlight, the mountains cast shadows on themselves…..and I now see that is something that we also do to ourselves. We can have so much compassion for others yet seem to save the harshest tones for ourselves. With that being said the voice that had a million things to say, whether it be good or bad, has become quite still. It was the compulsive thinker and talker, and now it is the listener.

So, things may be quiet on here, but there is much going on behind the scenes :)


Love to you all.
