Fremont Center, New York, Sunday, May 10, 2020
I just finished a virtual tour including 7 sights of Lisbon. It was the tour guide who was based in Lisbon, about 6 friends/fellow business women who were scattered around the world, and I here in NY, all gathered around our computers wishing we were somewhere else. (Well, maybe the tour guide wasn't wishing he was somewhere else.) It made me miss my time in Portugal, and miss traveling in general.
These are different times.
I'm grateful that I and those around me remain healthy. I'm grateful for each new day offered up to me. But, with each new day comes more introspection, and, lately, more action.
I once heard the concept that we are what we do. With all of my inward thinking, I realize I do a lot. Sometimes this works for me, but I believe this constant doing has become a distraction.
Maybe it always was.
As I focus, I see the need for what I do to also focus. I aim to do less to accomplish more. If I really want to architect my best life, that's where I need to put my full energy.
Walk the talk as "they" say.
So, this note will be my last for awhile. I'm pulling back on writing and recording, and instead focusing my energy on being and feeling. I don't have a specific schedule in mind (which is kind of the point), so I can't tell you when or how you'll hear from me again. But, I write this to tell you not to worry, my silence isn't a sign of disease.
It's quite the opposite.
I appreciate all the support you've given me as I talk out my journey. Know I will carry it with me in this next phase, wherever it takes me.
Also know that when I'm ready to talk about what I find in this next phase, you'll be the first to know :-).
I've included my latest thoughts down below.
Until next time. Enjoy, my friends, and be well.
