Living Inside Out...Moving On
Moving on, moving forward… an interesting distinction. I believe I have done ok moving forward, after having mine and my children’s life journeys significantly disrupted and detoured. We have new networks/friends, new jobs, launched projects, expanded knowledge/learning, discovered realities about our lives and opportunities…lots to be grateful for and hopeful about. But moving on, being candid, wish I could say we were doing better. How does one ever move on from lies that bring losses of family, career, friends, securities, dreams…
I find myself continually embracing the idea to reimagine the possibilities of 'living inside out, in an outside in world'.
Moving on - outside in… I care what others think of me? I am acting as if ‘it is about me’? I am in conflict with defining what family is/isn’t through traditional standards?
Moving on - inside out… I own MY truth; my motives were well intentioned. I explore the definition of family, aligning to my own values. I identify my desire to belong, asking to find it in faith and spirit.
How is moving on, moving forward showing up in your life, relationships and or work? Can you determine what is outside in thinking and the possibility for inside out perspectives? Please share!
How are you living - your truest inner being, obsessing over external narratives/approvals/belonging, anywhere on the spectrum in between, OR? How much do you know, want to understand your own story and the way it shows up, serves you in life, family, career? It feels like the unpacking for me has been going on for decades, perhaps most influentially the past 5+years. May I support you, wherever you are at, to consider what might be in your baggage? To intentionally cross the door's threshold? Is it time to purposefully live OUR STORIES, 'inside out'?
