It takes great courage to transition from one meaningful activity to something that is unfamiliar or unknown. A part of that process is to let go, or release our unwavering grip, of something that is no longer serving our highest potential.
On June 12, 2018, I reached out to the writers of Elements For A Healthier Life Magazine and, in a tearful Facebook Live video, informed them I was ending the digital publication that I started on May 22, 2016.
“It’s this illusion of struggle that we relate to the most versus the pleasure, joy, and love.” -Dr. Ginny Baro
This was not an easy decision to make. In the beginning my joyful excitement was very apparent as I shared my dream to be a publisher from the time I was about eight years old. In that moment I felt I reached my life’s work. I stood on the park benches and exclaimed, “I am a publisher!”
Then things shifted. Ironic how life hands us our next role. At the time of writing this post, I plan to continue the action steps I set in motion to create courses for those who are ready to transform their lives (see the irony here?) from what is no longer serving their highest potential to guide them as they evolve into their holistic self.
My intent this morning was to overhaul the website and remove all of the Write For Us links and guidelines… but… I was intuitively nudged to continue editing my recording with Dr. Ginny Baro for a course module. As I sat and watched the video from May 22nd, I knew this is not an ending. Like a snake shedding its skin, my purpose is evolving. I have a new role to take on gracefully.
What will happen to ElementsForAHealthierLife.com? It’s still unclear, but I will be moving the articles from the magazine to ‘blog post’ format. It is important to me that the pearls of wisdom, professional articles, personal stories and delicious recipes do not wither into the ether once I end my relationship with the magazine portal. There is grand power in our words. Our stories matter!
Enjoy our conversation and allow the messages that resonate with you to reach your heart.
As I have written for many years: Life is an amazing adventure; it was never intended to be lived in gray-scale.
