We are on a plane to Dublin, Ireland. This is the same time of year and same trip we took about a year ago today. Everything is different though.
Last year we were somewhere between reeling and recovering emotionally while we were on our journey to Ireland. The events of that trip cemented the beginning of the transformation of our lives. The story has been told so many ways now so I won’t tell it again here. If you want a taste there are dozens of posts to visit or re-visit on this very site.
This trip will take us back to some sacred sites we discovered last year like the Hill of Tara and to a few new ones like Croagh Patrick. When we left Ireland last year we longed to return as soon a possible. We both knew we had unfinished business to attend to both energetically and spiritually. The fact that we are heading back so soon and not just as vacationers, but also as facilitators in our own business is mind-bending to us.
The concept of unfinished business is not just as it applies to what is yet to be discovered in Ireland over the next two weeks. The unfinished business is the story that will unfold upon our return. The avalanche of joy and abundance is so close that I tingle with excitement every time I think about it. I had to pause in the park during my workout this morning numerous times as I wept with gratitude. We are all too ready!
One of the measures of how different our lives are now than they were a year ago can be seen in the unfinished business I left behind as we departed this morning. In the past when I traveled, the week or so leading up to my journey would have been fraught with micro-management and task mastering. In order to enjoy a trip I needed to leave everything in perfect order and be ready ahead of schedule. Not so much anymore. My twin flame Christiana and a number of other important mentors have aided me in my awakening.
So this time I depart with a few piles of papers and things unattended to. I leave with a few household chores left to complete. We leave with a stack of mail still at the post office box. I leave with a few things in the laundry basket. I will leave a few emails unanswered. I will throw out a few leftovers that I didn’t get a chance to finish. I will forget a few things that I think I needed because I don’t have my typed lists. I will have to go over my editor’s last draft of my book proposal on the plane instead of sending it before we left as I had hoped. I will have to find a sub for one of my yoga classes while I’m gone because I didn’t go crazy trying to find all my subs before I left. A few bills will have to be paid while we are gone because we ran out of time. We even left for the airport 30 minutes later than I wanted to and I only lost my mind a little bit.
In the end, I left a bit of unfinished business as we embarked on our journey of unfinished business. What a sign of growth and acceptance for me to enjoy. I’m ready for Ireland. I’m ready for even more change. I’m ready for the next set of stories to begin!
