We are in a beautiful time of spiritual reflection and heaven knows this year has been a challenge in body, mind and spirit. Are you experiencing a personal resurrection during this season? I feel I’m coming out of a long season of learning life’s lessons into a new time bursting with electricity, charged with enthusiasm and boundless energy.
What does hiding have to do with rebirth and new beginnings? Well, this is what I’ve observed.
No matter what era you were born, women have expectations drummed into them from the time they are in the womb. Growing up in the ’50s, I assumed I’d work until I got married, have babies, and spend the rest of my life taking care of my husband, house, and grandchildren. It didn’t quite work that way for me, nor has it turned out that way for many women…
Well, it does matter! And it’s time to stop hiding. It’s time to take center stage in your life, shine and be seen, unleash your voice, share your story, and lavish yourself with all the nurturing you have generously bestowed on others.
I am no longer hiding!
After years of being afraid to show up as me, for fear of rejection, or that I wasn’t good enough, hiding took its toll on my body, mind, and spirit. Our dreams and desires may be out of sight, but they do not stay hidden. They manifest in ways as small as an uneasy feeling, to the stress that leads to a cancer diagnosis.
I have weathered my dark night. I am an amazing human being because of those challenges and determined to claim my place in the world.
Hallelujah! Here I am!
