💕Calling in the One: Day 48
In the second to last lesson, Katherine Woodward Thomas writes of "Being a 'Yes' to Love" and has us take stock in the risks that we've not taken and actions that we've avoided regarding creating love in our lives. I know logically that with great risk comes great reward. I mean, even when you fail hard, you learn great lessons. I've done more of that than I would have liked in the moment, but looking back I have few regrets. Although, I know that there is so much more that I could have done with regard to love and career. Living in NYC, sometimes just going outside felt like risk enough. In this tiny town in Pennsylvania, nothing feels very exciting. I'm really looking for something in between. California is still in my heart, so I'll have to make traveling there to visit a priority.
We also wrote in our journals about our fears, what we are protecting by avoiding these risks, and what actions we could take that could represent a risk for us. For me, travelling to Cali for a visit felt like a risk because I really dislike travelling alone. I guess it's unusual for a Sag gal, and although I've done so, I didn't really enjoy it as much as I have with travel buddies. But, it's time to get out of my comfort zone, not for love necessarily, but for my life to feel like it has purpose again. I also have to get my driver's license reinstated. I let it expire while living in NYC and opted for a state ID. I need the freedom of providing my own transportation here and pretty much anywhere. I'd also like to work on building my YouTube channel. I love film in every capacity, so it just makes sense to combine it with my practice! So, look out for and subscribe to my Urban Empath channel on youtube! (And Rachael Marie Shaffer if you're so inclined -- my performance vids are there). There are other risks on my list that I'm keeping to myself. One.Day.More!!!
