As I approach my 52nd birthday, I have been reflecting on the waves that have carried me thus far. There are aspects of my life that feel like they have been looping around in an unrelenting swirl: my desire for material comfort, the size of my jeans, and the balance in my checking account. There are other aspects that are relaxing happily on the shore: my marriage, family, and friends, acceptance of my limitations and strengths, and my love for the finer things of life – food, wine, Eileen Fisher, and spa treatments.
Although I still struggle with the pull the under currents of money, career, and school- I feel that with each passing year I become more and more comfortable voyage.
I aspire to be like the image of Yemaya with her head high above the waves, floating with ease on the currents.Stable and steady in my gaze, laid back and fluid in my actions.
