"Your inner knowing is your only true compass." - Joy Page
My journey has brought me to a place where the daily lessons sometimes overwhelm me. Yet, I am learning that these lessons do not go away. I cannot hide from them.
They not only find me, they burrow in and do not let up.
The task at hand then is to breathe and be still; to let the mind settle and the body relax.
Those that know me well, know how hard it is for me to be still and breathe. Yet, I know this is what helps me. It is not easy! Yes, we learn lessons from the lessons too...
I was in bumper-to-bumper traffic recently. Cars and exhaust fumes surrounded me. It was dark. I felt claustrophobic and stuck. In that moment, I knew I needed to get away to a new place and spend time having fun with family and friends after the busy holiday season.
This is it. This is when you need to pay attention, when the deep hum inside you begins to sing.
And, when you are open to it, opportunities present themselves. So, after a dinner party a few days later, a chance to get away skiing came up. With my conviction, we booked it past midnight right then and there with our friends - glass of wine in hand! No one at the dinner party could believe how 'spontaneous' I was.
This is the exact reason we made this original Belinda compass. It is a reminder to follow your truth north; to listen to your heart. It is a reminder to travel in the direction of your dreams. And it truly is a beautiful pendant - made from an 18th century wax mold.
So, instead of letting the journey overwhelm me, I am going to embrace it this holiday season and hit the slopes!
