Oh how this resonates with me today. I’ve heard myself say over and over lately how busy I am. What I am certain of is that the busyness is made up of fulfilling and meaningful activities and interactions. I’ve been called to unexpected places with unexpected responsibilities under unexpected circumstances. And I love it.
Every day I find myself connecting with people and sharing the experience of life and living. I’m continually surprised at the synchronicities and the generosity of spirit that comes forth given the chance. And that’s really all any of us want – the chance to show up as our authentic selves.
So what is the hunger that my gladness is feeding? Connection. Deepak Chopra says that the world is not hungry for more “things” but rather for relationship. I agree. I see it everywhere I go. There may be the momentary distraction of stuff or human desire but it disappears when someone stops to listen. To be heard; to be seen; to be valued is what helps us know we exist for some purpose. It stirs that place in all of us that is wanting to know that we matter.
So I wonder what intersection lies ahead for you as your passion pulls you into the path of a great hunger in your world.
