Today I have the opportunity to reflect on how I am connected to my community. There are a number of reasons why this has been on my mind lately and I found myself this morning driving home and thinking about how connected I do feel right now.
Once I had this thought, it was immediately chased out of my head by another which was, “And that is even with my ability to push away parts of my life when I feel overwhelmed by what life is throwing at me…”. The thought of how richly I feel connected to the people in my life, and to the people in general who surround me on a daily basis, almost shocked me. It has been a long time since I have been able to find the mental and emotional space to actually think about positive assets and my connection to people and place.
These musings lead me to consider, “So, what is different today?”. At this stage what I have found is that I am open, that I feel space around me and that I have started to be able to clear some of the emotional clutter from my mind, and this has given me the opportunity to be more outward looking. The more outwardly I look, the more I listen to to the activity of others, the more motivated and inspired I feel. As a result, I am given space to be aspirational.
