My "space" for February has been heart. It's been a wonderful month of exploring just what that space means to me. I have learned and observed a lot about "heart" in work, in relationships, in my life and most importantly when I look in my mirror. That look, the one in the mirror, is one that most of us avoid at all costs. Because I find myself at a time when it is just me most days, I have forced myself to look in that mirror more than I ever have and I have decided I like what I see.
That girl has heart!!
My sister recently took a new head shot for me; it is my current profile picture. I had a really quiet moment when she shared it on Facebook. Honestly, it took my breath away.
Because I recognized her! I actually, finally, KNEW the girl in that picture. She's strong and confident. She believes in the best in people and in herself. She has been vulnerable and survived. She has loved and lost and revels in the lessons and memories of both. She is living in this moment, now, but she has complete confidence in the path she is on to the future. She believes in her gifts and celebrates the gifts of others. She has absolutely no fear. She has seen success and failure. Neither slows her down. She works hard and believes in her ability to help others through her work. She has amazing family and friends. She is on an adventurous journey and loving every minute of it. She laughs and she cries. She is blessed and grateful.
She is human and owns it.
She is real and not ashamed.
Who are YOU? Do you recognize yourself when you look in the mirror? Until you do, no one else will. On this last day of February, how do you find your heart??
