#reverb12 Day 30: What can you celebrate NOW?
Today's incredible guest post (and stunning art) comes from my succulent wild friend Ruth. To be honest, I saved Ruth's words and images until [almost] last for good reason: as we near the end of the year, I wanted us to be galvanised by her exhortation to cultivate our lives as manifesto.
Often we see our life as a humongous journey, and we believe that not only have we not arrived at our far away desired destination, but we also think we must accomplish x, y, and z, before we can declare with satisfaction that we are THERE.
For a moment, take a close look at who you are NOW. See what you can declare.
Merge the past, present, and future into one big ARRIVAL.
Describe joyously and in great celebration the BEING that you ARE.
(If you like, try writing this in third person as if you were a news reporter and this article about you is appearing in a publication you love and respect.)
I love the way this sums up all we have been doing over the past month. All this soul-searching has been bringing us to this very place that Ruth so beautifully celebrates: exactly where we are, right now.
Thank you, Ruth.
