Today’s blog post is a bit different, which makes it fun! I was inspired this morning by a statement that my friend Mark Semple posted in one of his groups. It was a great request, and one I thought about before posting a response.
My friend, Coach Mark Semple. We’ve been friends for 8 years and met for the first time last August.
The invitation was, “Post an image symbolizing where your journey is headed.” What a wonderful idea. I’m a very visual person. I think in images and write in a way that evokes pictures. I thought about where I am currently as I journey. Immediately I saw myself in a state of surrender, floating down the river, in the flow of Life, not resisting, not wasting energy by attempting to paddle upstream, not getting caught in the whirls and eddies along the edges. Flowing.
Here’s the image I found, and the words I wrote to accompany this symbol of my journey.
Surrendered and in the flow of Life. I don’t know where I am being taken however I know it is for my best and highest purpose and growth and that opportunities will flow to me as well. I choose to trust the journey and stay in the flow and see where I go, with joy and anticipation!
I so loved the process of picking an image to represent my journey that I put the invitation on my Facebook wall. I enjoyed the responses as people journeyed alongside today, capturing with an image where they are right now. Here are the responses, with no additional commentary from me.
Stepping into my destiny as who I was born to be. Mark Semple
This is the journey I feel life has me headed towards. A position of power, a lonesome perch, above the rapid flow of everyday life. I hope to be unique, and influential, but the path there is treacherous, requiring thought, balance, and peace. Any slip up and downward I will plunge, into the abyss that is the majority of people, unknown to the history books, being swept along in the rapid current of a normal, unmemorable life.

Probably not the best day for posting stuff for me. LOL. But…honestly? I’m headed here along with everyone else. At least, I hope, I get the winged guardians and not the ones with pointy horns. 🙂 Faintly Macabre
I’m grateful for these fellow travelers who took the time to share their images. I love the reminder that the journey is unique for everyone and that even my journey changes day by day. What a fun and insightful exercise to do occasionally to create a snapshot, to mark a spot, as I travel. Please play along and leave an image that symbolizes where you are headed in your journey, in the comment section and…enjoy this moment along Life’s path.
