IT’S BEEN A WHILE

This is one of my favorite artists…

Chiropractor Fenton Michigan Brian AndreasAfter reading this a couple of days ago, it struck me that over the past 2 months, I have sat still and listened. This life I am leading is very different from even just 2 short months ago.

My entire being has shifted and let me explain what that actually means for me.

I was pretty content in living a life of service.  I have spent the past 10 years really happy and fulfilled in being a chiropractor and helping people daily in my practice Cafe of LIFE Chiropractic.

I LOVE being a chiropractor.  There is absolutely nothing that I would change about how I spend my days in this wonderful community…giving, loving and serving.  I get to see miracles happen right in front of my eyes. I get to be part of families in the community and get to watch them grow. Truly every single day I am blessed and honored to be part of people’s healing process.  It is a calling in my heart and in my soul to do the work that I do at the Cafe, a place that is truly a second home to me.

In my personal life, I have had hopes and dreams and visions of my future.  I choose to spend most of my time in the present moment, however I am always headed in the general direction of a well calculated destination.  Life happens in the journey, in the mundane of the everyday, and not once you reach the final destination.

AND…as soon as I think I have a really great, well-calculated plan and a really awesome destination and an incredible vision for myself and my life, I get broadsided by the Universe and sent on a different trajectory.

When I talk about hopes and dreams and visions for myself in my personal life…I have BIG ONES!!!  HUGE ONES!!!  I have to say that it is one of the reasons I spend a lot of time traveling and exploring and discovering more and more of my world around me, and therefore discovering more about myself.

This particular trajectory I am currently on is SO GRAND, FAR MORE GRAND than I could have ever imagined for myself.  It is wonderful, wait, that word doesn’t do it justice.  Actually words really dilute the experience because it really is a feeling, a healing and an evolution.

It’s been a wild ride and it has changed so much for a better, sweeter and more fulfilling experience. I am ready for the chaos to settle but am grateful for all of it. Every. Single. Bit. Of. It.

I am grounded in Fenton and this community more than I have ever thought was possible.  There is chaos around right now, but that is the breaking down of the old to build a new foundation that will support and sustain something super incredible.  This is applicable on so many levels.

Not to worry, I am not going anywhere.  In fact, travel will always be part of who I am, however there is so much fulfillment in this new travel to the inner space of myself and who I am that the need to explore far-off lands sort of fizzles…unless, of course, he can go with me.

Beyond that, have you all noticed how cool Fenton is becoming?  HOLY COW I am grateful to be in this community right at this time!!!!

What I realized from these past 2 months is so profound.  We have no real control of our lives.  We cannot control what others say or do.  We can have a destination in mind however when everything is up in the air, it is so important to find time to sit quietly. There is so little time to be idle in life anymore, in fact, I think the concept is lost for future generations.  Nobody spends time just sitting and thinking and listening to that little voice inside that has the answers we are looking for.

It has been a while since I have written.  It is not because I haven’t thought about it, it’s because I am having a hard time quieting my mind at the end of the day as it is.  Writing inspires me, opens up new channels of possibility and can keep thinking late into the night after I publish a blog post.  For that very reason, and the fact that the Cafe is so busy to begin with, I have saved as much energy as I can and put it towards restful sleep at night instead of stimulating myself by creating.

Tonight, I just couldn’t help it anymore.  This had to come out.

Rest well my friends.  See you sooner than later!!!
