Session #8 of 13


A Time Of Reflection


  • As you read the quote and story below and consider a step in The Connection Strategy, notice what you notice as you read. Does a word, phrase or concept tug at your attention?
  • Does a quote or insight emerge for you in this time of reflecting as together we listen for and commit to choosing pathways that lead to life and love and light rather than death and hatred, that lead us home to who we are meant to be?
  • What insights rise up from your experience as we hold space to focus on and empower a vision of wholeness and well-being? What are the lessons we need to be learning? What are the shifts we are embracing or need to embrace?
  • What wisdom and creativity is emerging for you? What stories and situations fill you with hope? Are there quotes or stories or experiences that you would add to deepen these reflections?

I begin to recognize that some of my greatest assets reside in that part of me that I was hiding behind the ‘golden girl façade.’ It would have been a loss if I had left those gifts stranded in the depths of who I am to wither away through lack of use. I shift from thinking of that part of me as my ‘dirty, grungy self’ to describing it as the ‘creative, critical’ part of who I am. The ‘creative, critical’ part of me, combined with the ‘golden girl’ part of me, is a much better reflection of who I am. Integrating both parts is an important step on my journey to living from a place of wholeness.
