Friends are asking "So what is next?"

What do I tell them? Who knows?!? Most people want to know what job I want, but I kinda don't think or feel that way. Looking at most job postings makes my heart go "clunk". Sometimes it can be fun when I let go and just look for the fun of it. As I told a friend tonight, my choice to go into engineering in college was a decision made with my head. I had a long and satisfying career in engineering for 17 years. But somewhere toward the end, I earned my Master's degree in Spiritual Psychology and my view of life shifted. Since then, I have made my choices based on my heart. All I can say to people and to myself, is that I follow my heart. My heart has never let me down. I have always been guided and had everything I needed and more. I have always been blessed with opportunities and abundance - abundance of friends, support, time, opportunities and paths I could NEVER have imagined in a MILLION years! This is the time to trust this again. My life has been so interesting and diverse with my heart leading the way. My heart has lead me to working with whales & dolphins, starting an environmental camp for kids, and helping a Master's student tag and track endangered species of parrot in the Bahamas (not to mention taking home my dog Ernie rescued from the streets of Abaco); backpacking and building with teens in a small village in Alaska; working construction; coaching families and their children to thrive and working in social work for family reunification; working as a potter and teacher; going into skilled nursing facilities as a potter; working as a recreation therapist and most recently a member of a transdisciplinary leadership team focused on well being for people living with dementia.

So this is what I say... to myself... I am excited for my next chapter. I know that I am well guided and loved. I will meet the right people at the right time and I will be called to move in directions in perfect timing. I trust you, my heart and I am so grateful for all the adventures we have had so far! Let's keep 'em coming! In this moment, I like writing this blog. I like clearing out the old to make room for the new. I really look forward to ECADS and puppy training. I am excited to be reconnected to my desire to have a therapy dog. I am excited to see where this leads. I like not knowing. I love witnessing how each step leads to the next. I love feeling that life is fun and fascinating. I know I want to feel my heart be full everyday - full of love and laughter. I know I want to be creative, innovative, collaborative, flexible, part of a team, intuitive. I am grateful for my friends and their constant love and support. I am grateful for every single life experience that has led me to this moment. I am so grateful for each step. I don't know where it's going, but I know it's going somewhere and somewhere magical!!! Thank you Source, God, "Fred", Heart...
