What can you see from where you stand now?
I’ve seen a few people in my online world decide that February has been, or maybe even Spring will be the start of their personal new year. Makes sense to me. It’s late Winter and I’m only just defrosting.
I see January as a time for the broad strokes. For the outline.
The rest of the year is the interesting bit. Where we fill in all of the detail we couldn't possibly have planned at the start of the year.
And so, my prompts for you today are about the view you can see from where you are now - a few steps in on 2023’s path.
(especially of a process or organization) just coming into existence and beginning to display signs of future potential.
Coming into being; beginning to form
What is the view from where you stand now?
What extra information do you have?
What is nascent and just coming into view?
How has the view changed (or not changed) since the start of the year?
Were they expected or unexpected changes?
How might they alter your path moving ahead?
Pick one or use them all. It’s up to you. I’ve left a few of my own reflections on how I decided to answer the question at the end of the audio. I know music is a very personal and subjective thing, but if you would want something to play in the background while you write, there’s now a playlist below that’s ready for you whenever you’re ready to pick up your pen. Ready now? Let’s go.
Until next time, thank you for being here.
A Life of Words is an online journal of a life in progress. Here you’ll find words from my path, but most importantly, space for your own with regular invitations to figure out (and then ask) the questions that matter to you, not fear the replies and learn to live the answers.
If you’ve enjoyed hanging out here today, I’d love it if you shared this journal invitation with someone. You can also buy me a coffee to say, ‘hey, I like what you do.’
Always unexpected changes for sure, but I do love the feeling of Spring coming and some energy and warmth returning...
I just spent the last hour with these prompts, friend. Thank you for helping me find some new perspectives, xx
