Starting Place

It's been over a year since I've written. Had a ton of thoughts since then, but I just haven't been able to put words to paper. Today is that day. It's a new year, the start of a new decade and I've got a lot on my mind today. I feel so overwhelmed, by love and justice and determination. But all around me is chaos and lack of direction. Life feels so complicated and it's hard to find our way through. Today I have to take some time a get some perspective. 2011 just sort of thrust itself upon me. I was busy writing a thesis that did not pass and didn't have time to enjoy the holidays and ponder the advent of another year. Today my focus is on clarity. Not necessarily looking into the future and having a road map of what's coming next, but clarity about the role I play in my own destiny. Will I be able to say, at the end of the day, that I did all that was necessary to achieve my purpose? That is what I am pondering for today. I will update what comes from this focus in the next few days. Think about with me what you were put on this earth to do and what is keeping you from that? What are you willing to do or sacrifice to make your dreams come true?
