Recently there's been a voice trying to get my attention. It’s been something like an echo, sort of there, but sort of not, and quickly drifting if I don’t stop to listen. It isn’t always clear, and I’m not always sure where it’s coming from. But thanks to several divine appointments this week, I finally heard what it had to say.
In a conversation with a friend’s mother, she reminded me that we spend our lives trying to have it all, but maybe it doesn’t look like what culture tells us it looks like. Maybe having it all, isn’t actually about having it all (or even doing it all), but realizing that what you have is it all.
In a conversation with a stranger who was a professor of child psychology, he told me to trust my intuition because intuition is what makes a parent a great parent.
In a magnificent, new book by Brian Andreas I read: “Her whole life shifted the day she started to tell the truth about what made her happy. I never knew it could be so simple, she said.”
And so I will start today, I will realize that I do have it all, I will trust my intuition, and I will remember what makes me happy—and not what should make me happy because expectations tell me what makes me happy, but because deep inside, it feels right.
