Quietly listening to the Chuck-wills-widow before the first rays of light penetrate the slumber of the other feathered ones. Change is here, yet I feel as if I am the rock in the middle of the bubbling stream. Not stuck, just patiently waiting, feeling the surge of energy gush past. Last week, I did hear my heart pitter-patter a bit faster with the knowledge that I am moving in a month. There is still much to do, so I have not allowed myself much more time to dream of my new job. I had already done much brainstorming before the interview. There will be time enough in June.
There has been packing, cleaning and purging - I am almost down to two boxes of books! There has been money making with said purged items at a yard sale. There has been intention setting - positivity, joy, and resonance. I am on week two of an e-course, Inspiring Leadership through Emotional Intelligence, and am loving it. There has been manifesting of abundance to come into my life and letting go to open up space. There has been goal setting - moving to Italy in five years!
One of the hardest tasks will be saying good-bye to the junior naturalists, as I have been a mentor to many of them for over four years now. Possibly my favorite responsibility this life has been to guide them, listen to their stories, watch as they grew to be leaders, naturalists, and responsible citizens of the earth. They are truly caring, kind, and confident individuals. Let me tell you, writing notes to each of them is an almost impossible task.
I am constantly amazed by this life and how we grow - giving little pieces of ourselves and receiving little pieces of others along the way. If even for a bright, shining moment you have crossed paths, it is all for the betterment of the Universe.
Today, I continue on the cleaning and packing path basking in the sunshine and listening to the abundance of water seep down into the earth.
