an inspired life

You may have been wondering, “Where is June?”  While I am still in constant search of the most excellent version of myself, I am still here.  Here and well.  Sorry to have disappeared.  I can feel the weight of winter being lifted.  Spring brings optimism and lightness, literally and figuratively.

I spent this winter reading The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin.  While certainly not a new book, I had not read it.  I love how it focuses on finding what is good in your life, changing up habits that don’t serve you or those around you, and clearing space to simply be happy.  I appreciate how the author clearly states that she was not unhappy before launching her happiness project.  She really just wanted to be appreciative and present in her every day.   I 100% understand.

I am blessed with a lovely life.  Truly.  But I do find myself wondering, “What now?”  I seem to be wondering a lot lately.  If I was having coffee with my 20 year-old self, I would urge her to follow her dreams.  Dreams are big and plentiful when we are starting out.  The runway is long.  Options endless.  Follow your dreams.  However, as middle age creeps in the dreaming is so very different.  More complicated I guess.  What are my dreams at forty?  I’m not afraid to follow my dreams, I just don’t know what they are exactly.   Does that make any sense?

So while I quietly decide what happens next, I return to this creative space.  A space that is all mine, which I am happy to share with all of you!
