For years, the idea of spending time connecting with my best self seemed like a ridiculous indulgence. I was raising children, supporting the community, and trying to help earn some family income. There were connections I sought–with God, with others, with Nature–but with myself? Almost never.
Now, as my children are building lives and families on their own, as I contemplate how to make the best of the next phase of my life, I realize I can only make authentic decisions about what will be meaningful if I get to know myself better. What makes me tick? What makes my heart sing? What do I need to know about myself so that I can tap into my worthiest goals and my greatest potential? This is a journey, of course…a treasure hunt, in many ways, as I discover this or that about myself. I see this process not as self-indulgent, but as a responsibility to myself and my best life.
