Source Your Joy from Within

5 Prompts to Walk Through An Open Door

One of my favourite things to do is to sing in the car on an enchantment adventure. Stacy made me a playlist a few years ago and these songs will be forever associated with the many many hours of exploring our beloved Cape Breton.

Now that we’re in Ontario, with very different schedules, I wondered if we would find the time for our little adventures. Well, I’m happy to say that it’s still very much a priority. As we were both singing “In Your Eyes” loudly I couldn’t help but feel that familiar sense of togetherness.

We had a small disagreement over my favourite song at the moment. Don’t judge me: it brings a spring to my step! What can I say? The next time the song played Stacy said, “I LOVE this song!” and we sang it together. If that’s not love I don’t know what is.

I’m in transition right now and it’s these little things that keep me grounded and centred. This is the longest stretch of my life that I’ve been this consistently creative, expansive and full of a kind of joy that is sourced entirely from within (spring flowers and sunsets help).

It feels like there’s an open door that’s waiting for me to walk through. I don’t know where it will lead. I know I’m not ready to walk through it but I also know it’s very soon. For the first time in my life, I am simply and completely trusting the timing of the new threshold.

This kind of trust is hard to describe. It feels like walking in an open field where you’ve faced your greatest fears and now you just feel in complete alignment. It feels like when I came out as a lesbian, and there was a me before and a me after. Something like that.

There is a lightness and freedom that comes from choosing yourself.

Back to you!
