The shape of the world is shifting. It is constantly shifting but never more so than now. We can be passive recipients of the impact of these shifts in the world or we can become active participants in shaping the future of the things that are near and dear to our hearts.
I take this to heart in my life. The shape of my world is shifting and transitioning once again. My husband and I, also business partners, have decided that our journey together is complete. We have consciously and intentionally decided it is time to separate personally and business wise. This is easy for me to say now, but much of the journey leading up to this point, like many transitions, was not so easy. It became easier when I could finally reach a place of fully appreciating the gifts of the relationship – of which there were many. They get lost sometimes in the pain of transition or even just the pain of being in relationship together when does not work the way you hoped or dreamed.
Then there is that great line from the Rolling Stones song – “You can’t always get what you want, and if you try sometime, you find you get what you need.” I definitely got what I needed.
My journey over the last decade or so has led to a birthing process. I am birthing the second half of my life. In these early days of the second half of my life, I am claiming the following purpose: from this place of deep rootedness to my spiritual lineages, I boldly bring my healing gifts to the shifting shape of the work and the regeneration of its people.
The second thing I am giving birth to is this new company: Shape Shift Strategies Inc. It is the entity through which I will bring my gifts to the world. It feels like it is an entity unto itself that will shift into its own shape over time. It wanted to be born and I am excited to give it life.
This blog will be used to comment on the shifting shape of the world – my world, the world, worlds I work in, am connected to or interested in – worlds that are near and dear to my heart. Things, people, issues that I want to bring notice or intentionality to – places where I intend to be an active participant in the shifting shape of the world.
