This weekend was about allowing ourselves to be brave, in small ways, by taking ourselves out of our comfort zones of known behaviors, of known skills, of known territory. This was about exploration, and serendipity, about happy accidents, and stolen moments. This, for me, was about strong tea and gluten free cupcakes, waist-high snow and a snowed-in toddler. It was about flexibility and patience, and about learning just how much more room there is for me to explore those qualities in myself!
Trying new things as adults is not common– we so often do what we do, go where we go, play what we play. This weekend was about taking the small and deliberate risk to be new again, to be a beginner and to enjoy what it means to be brand new at something, experiencing it for the first time.
I am so grateful for your companionship, for your bravery, for your tenacity and sense of play. I am so glad that you took this opportunity to give yourself permission to try that software, that tree tapping, that painting, that new way of being.
I’ll sign off for now, but not before saying thank you so, so much for joining me! I hope I’ll see you here again. (If you’re not already on my mailing list, I’d love it if you’d sign up— and also find me on facebook.)
