LOVE NEVER LEFT BUT JOY WENT MISSING

LOVE NEVER LEFT, BUT JOY WENT MISSING.

We lost ourselves. And somewhere along the way, I stopped believing there would be an “on the other side” of things. There’s much more to the story, but nothing for here and now. We’ve each individually been doing the work to repair ourselves, and last week we reclaimed a vital piece of JOY IN PARTNERSHIP. 

EDGE-WALKING AND THE SENSITIVE HELPER DILEMMA

You wish to be a positive impact on our world. You see all that is unattended or under-defended in our society and want to dive in, yet become overwhelmed; daunted by the effort it would take to move the needle at all, let alone make any real difference. As a highly sensitive creature, your drive to help confronts your limitations and, possibly, a real inability to adapt to or entrain your energy with our current culture-at-large.


WELCOME TO THE SENSITIVE HELPER’S DILEMMA

INFORMED LEAPS

Take the leap. Your wings will show up on the way down… they say.


But here’s a thing to realize … the GENUINE folks you see living life from “their gut” and taking action based simply on their “knowing” — well — the truth is likely that there is nothing simple about it.  There are a MULTITUDE of factors involved some of which include: honed gifts, practiced skillsets, non-publicized struggles, challenges & hardships and to be completely real … resources and privilege. 


Deep listening … taking aligned action steps … following a greater path … this is not STRAIGHT LINE LIVING. Sometimes it does mean leaps of faith and hoping some wings show up for loft to carry us further forward and onward.


But when walking in wisdom and employing discernment, I do NOT take that leap from a height that decimates me should my wings not unfurl in THAT moment.
