With so much time to myself, I tend to think a lot. Actually, I'm currently reading a book called Women Who Think Too Much, hahaha! But that's not the thinking I'm talking about here. It's more the reflecting, the deep thinking-with-my-heart type of thinking, the good kind. So I've got all this time to think and reflect and often I realize things. I've been having so many aha! moments lately that it almost feels like I'm waking up from some deep sleep. And maybe I am; maybe I have been living half asleep up until now.
It's amazing how much stuff comes up when you just sit and let it come. Now you'd think this might not be a good thing but, actually, for me it's been a great thing. These days I'm filling up my gratitude journal fast and furious, and that feels really good. I never knew I could have so much to be grateful for.
So what does all this have to do with women? Well, today I got to thinking about just how the women in my life inspire me. I am blessed to be surrounded by so many wonderful women. I said to a friend once that it is from the women in our lives that we get a sense of who we are, and it's so true. It wasn't until recently that I realized just how precious the women in my life are and how grateful I am to have each and every one of them. Whether they are near or far, whether I see them often or seldom, whether we're in touch regularly or rarely, I treasure the connection I share with these beautiful women. Thank you all for the wonderful energy you give me :)
