Ebb and Flow
This is the first post in over three weeks on a blog that is normally updated two - three times a week. Why? Because I chose to follow my own advice and disconnect for a while. I chose to sort out some new plans without the mental clutter that often comes with being online and connected. I chose to listen to the sometimes quiet and peaceful, sometimes loud and turbulent voices in my head. I often experience a very reflective period during winter. It is not always fun at the time, but I normally experience tremendous growth following a spell of inner turbulence.
As spring comes I feel a surge of energy, strength, and clarity coming on. I am very excited about the life changes that my wife and I will be making. Just as the seasons change, so does life. Life is a mix of beautiful sunny days, grey overcast days, and sometimes violent stormy days. I'm learning to go with the ebb and flow of life - not to question what comes at me, but to change the manner in which I react.
The ebb and flow of life is dynamic and challenging. I find it beautiful and invigorating.
