The Hit List - Reflecting on the eclipse

Last year, around the summer eclipse, I set an intention. I would begin moving away from one-on-one work to focus on writing and teaching. I had felt this tugging at my sleeve for some time. There was no more ignoring that call – I closed the books and moved forward.

Was that scary? Yes.

Change is always frightening – especially when you’re walking away from something you’ve done for most of your adult life. But ignoring a calling becomes impossible when it gets louder and louder. I will say: the Universe sent me many signs long before I made this decision. I just needed to get the guts to do it.

A few weeks ago, another eclipse came and went. This one landed close to my birthday. I was nursing a tooth infection so I had plenty of time to reflect on the past year – and that intention. Since that time, I’ve fully immersed myself in writing and teaching. New opportunities have fallen in my lap, opportunities I would not be able to do if I didn’t make the decision last year.

My current incarnation is making me happier than I’ve been in a long time. So for now…I’m leaning into it and seeing what unfolds. This may be my new life or simply a detour. But whatever happens, I’m always ready to take those risks – and I really don’t need another eclipse to push me.
