Full Moon

Two professional women: both married with kids and both juggling clients, reports, potty training, packed lunches, chores, dogs, cats, errands, husbands and …”what was that you said? SEX?”
That three-letter word that once was so frequent, so liberating, so yummy has been sidelined in a sea of life, work and snot.
It is time.
Time to put sex back on a pedestal by injecting some extra spice into our relationships.

Full Moon

Full Moon

There is a reason why things happen.  There is a reason why Miss Lee squeezed baby # 4 out, and I quite literally downed tools. I took the birth of Master Lee as being the reason for me not to contribute to Mission: Do It for the last few months.  It was an easy decision:  she was dealing with post-partum glory in all its extremes, and I was supporting her life change by consciously not writing the blog.  Interesting.  I had changed jobs that same month, and was juggling the demands of the new job with parenting, marriage and my volunteer work – but I was not using these reasons as my triggers for me to stop.  I was using a force that was totally unrelated to my life.   So why did I let her situation define what I did?

In a few words:  because I wasn’t being present.

“Present”.

One simple word that can help change the way each person tackles his or her life.

Today, I have learned the power of being present.  A myriad of forces have come together in just a few short hours to show the physical and spiritual impact of this word.  I met powerful women today, from totally different walks of life, that showed me how imperative it is to live in the moment.  These women carried with them an overwhelming sense of the need for living in the now.  Their power came from within – not from money, career, or a sense of entitlement, but from a personal primal experience:  by being present and engaged in the moment you will keep yourself safe, and stay true to yourself.

One of the women told me my life would change today – I wouldn’t be able to put my finger on it, but it would change.  And I feel it.  I feel the shift inside me to consciously remove the clutter, stop running at 100mph, and be tuned in to my environment.  I know I will falter, I know I will speed up, I know I will shift gear into reverse, but deep down I know thatthere has been a profound shift. and this shift will impact my relationships, most importantly with the Duke.   What I took away from today was threefold:

1) If you are experiencing problems, look at changing yourself first, before trying to change the other person in your life

2) Be intentional in your relationships

3) Be present in your relationships

And so I begin on my mission – one that isn’t just for a week, but hopefully lifelong.

Of course, a full moon is burning brightly outside.  Thank you moon.
