It’s been a year since the inception of Mindful Dragon. One year ago today I took the plunge to share this with the world, share me with the world. A declaration of my commitment to living authentically.
This process has provided me with many opportunities to practice vulnerability, authenticity, and courage. It has given me a modality to reflect on what is going on in my inner world. It has allowed me to understand more of what is happening, and extend compassion for what is there.
This blog has sparked connections and deepened relationships with amazing people. I can’t thank you all enough for what you have given me by reading my thoughts and sharing yours; you’ve given me a sense of feeling seen, heard, and that I matter. It has strengthened my connection to healthy tribe, and widened the horizons on who is included in that tribe.
I have come a long way in the year. There are still many things left to overcome, learn, and grow from; but I see myself tackling them as a dragon now. I know there will be more darkness to come, but I also know that in that darkness I can stand strong…or at least pick up the pieces after falling down. There’s this unshakeable belief in my own resilience that I hold now. It’s new, it’s intriguing, and it feels fascinatingly powerful.
I feel inspired to bring my personal development and Mindful Dragon to the next level. I have some big plans for year 2. They simultaneously scare me and excite me. I can’t wait to share more details with you – for now I’ll just say that I want to delve deeper into the goal of building healthy tribes and expanding on the ideas of “spreading my wings” – while staying grounded of course 😉 .
Again, I want to say how grateful I am to all of my readers for coming on this journey with me. I hope we can continue on this journey together; forging new paths, building connections, inspiring each other – and together start a dragon revolution.
