Happy Veterans Day!
Thank you to our wonderful military personnel both current and former! Wanted to give an extra dose of gratitude to them and to also extend our gratitude out to the rest of the month as we begin to head into the Holiday Season. Please remember to be kind to your neighbor, and do a random act of kindness that puts a smile on someone else's face. You don't know the path that someone else is walking, and who knows - that smile could be something that pulls them out of a slump.
For the Journey Group, we will be exploring some deeper themes that go beneath the surface. It's hard to live in today's society, and it takes a lot of courage. What does it mean to live with a courageous heart? And how do we explore the landscape that is our heart? This month specifically, we will be looking at our relationship with our inner teacher/leader. Sometimes when life gets us swept up in the chaos, we have to pause and take a look around. Are we currently in the moment? Or are we thinking about the future and the things that could go wrong? Are we looking to the past and thinking of all the mistakes that we made, being hard on ourselves?
When we call upon the teacher archetype, it helps us ask the hard questions of, "What is the lesson in the moment." If something has really bugged us or has gotten under our skin, how do we stop and ask the right questions? If we find that we are struggling because of a lack of leadership in certain areas in our life, then I invite you to take a look at the leadership you step up for in your own. Are you letting other people run your life and dictating what you do? I encourage people to begin thinking about their actions, thoughts, and what those two things have an affect on in this world. Pick up your power and do things in this world that those of the next generation will be happy to inherit. Be aware of your actions, and lead in your own life. You too, can make a difference.
If things are getting rough and you're feeling isolated, reach out. There are a lot of wonderful events that will help you feel reconnected to something bigger. Enjoy the rest of your month!
