Three Hundred Sixty Four: The End

“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.”  – Mahatma Gandhi

Wednesday, December 30th

This quote came to me in the middle of my bullshit bath. Lose yourself. In the service of others. Lose myself in the service. Doing what I do best in helping others binds me to humanity as a whole and separates me from my ego. Find myself by losing myself. 

One answer begets a much larger question. So is life.

Last night, my husband’s friend passed away. And end to the livity of a dear one. Now the world continues as something new, working in a minutely different way now that he is no longer here.

Several years ago, I attended a motherblessing for a friend very much pregnant who had just lost her grandfather. One of her friends shared that those that are in the process of bringing forth life are intrinsically linked to those who are finishing their dance. They are both more acutely aware of the true gift of life.

This has been a wonderful year. Thank you for sharing some of these moments with me.

What would you do with the next year if…?
