That is because I have been busy coming full circle.
I love this image because it reminds me of walking a labyrinth, following the path until you find the center.
I am still searching for my center. While I know I need sun... I also need people, and many of my people are in Minneapolis so I found myself back here. I went to the southeast, then to the southwest and now back to Minneapolis. That, is a really big circle!
I love how lush and green it is at this time of year, how full the lakes are, how familiar it all is, the fact that I have tried and true friendships. Yet, the number of gloomy days out numbers those with sunshine and I know with 16-24 weeks Minneapolis could have snow and bitter cold again. That is the part that is so difficult for me to bear. I feel my spirit take a nosedive on those gloomy days,knowing they often string together several days in a row. When this happens I get in a major funk, the fact remains, I need sun-even though I love this hip and vibrant city.
I also need my people and when you are in the middle of your life it is harder to start over in a new place with all new people.
So, I am faced with a choice, my people and a lack of sun? Or,
sunshine and a lack of my people? Tough choice!
Like many people- I thought I would be able to live half of the year here, and half in a sunny warm spot- the best of both worlds! Sadly, that is not quite on my radar at the moment.
Still, I am full of hope. Hope that I will make the right choices, that my business ventures will flourish and allow me circle back to that dream.
For today, I will be grateful for where I am in this moment and for everything I have learned from the circle journey and for the lessons that lie ahead.
For the moment, I am in Minneapolis, working freelance but also staying open to new business opportunities. Enjoying my old friends and open to new relationships too.
