No, it’s not the holidays when the women in my family extend themselves further than Gumby would have dreamed to get all the decorating, cooking and shopping done. Rather, to me it seems women are finding what it is they enjoy, what they feel passionately about, and are doing their best to follow their heart.
My mother no doubt feels a connection to her Native Indian roots as she searched for crystals and arrowheads in the earth. A dear friend searches for how she can best satisfy her inner child while using her creativity to help others use theirs. One of my childbirth students realized a scheduled cesarean section wasn’t aligned with her natural lifestyle. Instead, she learned all she could, kept up her physical fitness and had a wonderful waterbirth. We all have the capacity to listen to our hearts, our inner voice that speaks to us the truth of our desires.
Whether it be a hobby, career choice or important decision, now is the time to listen and find your strength. The Universe is as supportive as ever, and may we all delight in our sisters finding their universal strength.
