This week, I saved my cat's life. It took overall an hour before she was safe & sound. Afterward, I was shaken & this episode confronted me to my primal desire to stay alive. What is driving ME to fight for my life? What is my mission on Earth? Is the way I am spending my time + energy aligned with my aspirations & my potential?
I love reflecting, especially in my journal, yet it had been some time since I had addressed this topic. I realized that life is much simpler than I make it to be. What I absolutely love doing is what I am supposed to do. Sometimes, it's harder to strike a balance among everything that's tugging at my heart, but the good news is that whatever choice I make, it will lead me on to a greater life, to enlightening lessons, to more growth, & to opportunities to make a contribution to society.
The day after I saved Betty, I was questioning the scale of my impact. It seemed not big enough & I was feeling deflated. Upon tucking my daughter to bed, she thanked me for being a great mom. She went on to explain that because of me, she will raise her children to love and be kind. That because of me, one day there will be no more war on Earth, only peace + harmony because everyone will have learned "my" way. She had no idea of my internal struggle at the time, but it was the perfect answer. We never know who are children will grow up to be, but I have a feeling that my commitment to my family is very well spent.
