.lessons of summer.

When old words die out on the tongue, new melodies break forth from the heart; and where the old tracks are lost, new country is revealed with its wonders.

-Rabindranath Tagore, Gardener

I'm a different person than I was just a few months ago. I keep changing and evolving. Shedding the layers of the old me. Finding a new richness from following my heart - trusting my intuition - believing in abundance. I've had a lot of conversations lately about being in the right place, finding yes, manifesting abundance. I've been traveling a lot the past few weeks - exploring the New England coast, finding so much healing and ecstasy in submerging myself in the Atlantic. This summer has been my first time to swim in the Atlantic and I've fallen in love with it's warmth, steady waves and salty taste. It has grounded me this past month - helping me to let go of a path that I have been following - an assumed path - and reassuring (pushing me) past fear to live in a new way, an authentic way. 

When we were visiting the cape I met this jewelry artist - a wanderer like me. We instantly connected. I was so excited to hear about the way she has chosen to live her life - free/independently. Then I realized that all that is open and possible to me. I can live the way I want to live. It seems so simple - so basic - but these norms/expectations always come creeping into my world (mind) so quietly that sometimes I don't even realize I am holding onto them until I allow myself to see/feel/trust abundance. 

I love summer time. Life seems to pulse with energy and potential. Summertime is the time I remember my story is powerful. I remember that I am the only one limiting myself. I remember to give more love in order to receive more love.
