Blinders Off

As the week approaches its end, I find myself at a new beginning.
 
Through the course of writing this blog, I'm discovering a new sense of self.  For the last four years, I was very focused on healing and elevating my quality of living, which was a good thing.  But the more I went inward, the more difficult it became to look outside myself.  And being so hyper-aware of my own life journey, I temporarily lost sense of how I fit into other people's lives.  But as more and more people share with me that their resolutions to change their diet were inspired in part by me, it is both a surprising and humbling revelation.  Without thinking about it or intending it, I am touching people's lives.

So now, more than ever, I am reminded of the importance of community.  We do not simply exist.  We exist in the context of others, how we are the same and how we are different.  As one of us changes, so do we all.  And by being who we are and aspiring to live our lives to the fullest, we can perpetuate that "ripple," clearing the path for others to do the same.  Learning through sharing ideas, philosophies, values and life practices.  

Creating, defining, and enlivening our "canary culture."

 Have a wonderful weekend and a safe and memorable 4th. 

Carpe diem, my friends.  :)
