What will it take
To put down her stake
All that is calling her?

Just because something feels like a calling, doesn’t mean it’s ours. Not until we claim it – root it into our bodies and embed it into our soul.
For those of us who thrive on flexibility and variety, this can be tough. Staking a claim can feel fixed and permanent.
And yet, I have to believe it can be done with the openness that getting there can look different ways. And those ways can evolve and change over time.
They should evolve and change, otherwise we do risk becoming fixed and permanent.
And then we no longer have a calling, just a thing we’re holding onto tightly.
The balance is in finding the in-between.
