In our busy lives, in the rush to succeed, we mere mortals often lose our dreams. There is education, career, family, friends, homes, sports, in a word, life.
My question for you, precious one, is: what is your dream? Second question: are you living it?
Not so long ago I was in a session with my coach and mentor. She looked me in the eye and asked: “Lori what do you really want?” I actually had no clue. I had a successful career, a budding new business, a deep faith, a beautiful marriage and family! I muttered something or another, nothing profound or noteworthy!
A few days later, in a meeting, I realized I had met and surpassed every professional goal I had created. That chapter of my life was complete. I retired.
Now I had the gift of time! One morning, I remembered myself as a beautiful young woman with dream of hiking the Camino de Santiago Compostela. I love to walk, but had never been a backpacker or hiker. Me, hike tthis 500 mile trek , at 65.5 years old?? I prayed abut the Camino. I sought the advice of seasoned “peregrinos” or pilgrims, and began to walk!
I picked a date, bought equipment, and walked. Tomorrow I leave for the Camino de Santiago, a 500 mile trek over the Pyrenees mountains in Frrance from St. Jean Pied de Port to Santiago de Compostela Spain. My spiritual pilgrimage.
I leave you with on question: what is your dream?
I would love to hear your dream!!
Yours in beauty and ever so much grace,
