But still reading
Between the lines
Questions that define
But still evolving,
One foot ever resting
In all her worlds

I had a big milestone last week and I’m feeling “arrived”, like I landed at a new level.
The day after my book event, I felt a bit dejected and lost. The excitement was over.
It didn’t take me long to remember that there are so many next steps.
More events coming up. More trainings. More writing.
More of what I love and what keeps me motivated and moving forward.
Not that I don’t want to pause to enjoy and celebrate this new level at which I’ve arrived.
But there’s more to do.
Correction: there’s more to BE.
The doing gets me there, but the being is what guides me. What keeps me moving forward.
This feeling of arrived is a state of being, not a task that I’ve accomplished.
There will always be tasks, plenty of them.
But to be able to pause and experience the being – that’s where the growth happens.
So we can start again.
How are experiencing the being today?
