I wrote the following vision in May 2016. It’s now 1.5 years later, and my vision has almost exactly come to fruition…

The original vision:

“I am working at a nature conservation organization in a city that we love. I love my job.

My husband is working as an electrical inspector, and  enjoys his work.

We easily and effortlessly sold our home for a great price.

We easily and effortlessly found a beautiful 3 bedroom home mature trees that is centrally located that we love and can easily afford. We have great friends in our neighbourhood, and Alex has friends on our street.

Our move and transition was seamless and effortless for all involved.

Alex is going to a great school and after-school care program that he loves.

We have great friends with soul connections.

Alex loves his new hockey team.

We are all happy and healthy.

So be it and it is so and so it is.”

And what came to be:

“I am working for the university in a city that we love, on a project that is dear to my heart. I am deeply fulfilled by the work that I do. I love my job and the people that I work for.

My husband is working as an electrical inspector and enjoys his work.

We sold our home for a reasonable price, just in the nick of time, one day before the moving truck arrived.

We easily and effortlessly found a beautiful 3 bedroom home mature trees that is centrally located within the community that we love and can easily afford. We have great friends in our neighbourhood, and Alex has friends on the next block.

We were well supported during our move.

Alex is going to a great school and after-school care program that he loves, and where he has made good friends.

We have great friends with meaningful connections.

Alex loves his new hockey team and has 3 friends on his team from school and his soccer team.

We are all happy and healthy.

And so it is!

Christmas at Midlife by Mary Anne Perrone

I am no longer waiting for a special occasion; I burn the best candles on ordinary days.
I am no longer waiting for the house to be clean; I fill it with people who understand that even dust is Sacred.

I am no longer waiting for everyone to understand me; It’s just not their task
I am no longer waiting for the perfect children; my children have their own names that burn as brightly as any star.
I am no longer waiting for the other shoe to drop; It already did, and I survived.

I am no longer waiting for the time to be right; the time is always now.
I am no longer waiting for the mate who will complete me; I am grateful to be so warmly, tenderly held.
I am no longer waiting for a quiet moment; my heart can be stilled whenever it is called.
I am no longer waiting for the world to be at peace; I unclench my grasp and breathe peace in and out.

I am no longer waiting to do something great; being awake to carry my grain of sand is enough.
I am no longer waiting to be recognized; I know that I dance in a holy circle.
I am no longer waiting for Forgiveness. I believe, I Believe.

The Journey by Mary Oliver

One day you finally knew
what you had to do, and began,
though the voices around you
kept shouting
their bad advice – – –
though the whole house
began to tremble
and you felt the old tug
at your ankles.
‘Mend my life!’
each voice cried.
But you didn’t stop.

You knew what you had to do,
though the wind pried
with its stiff fingers
at the very foundations – – –
though their melancholy
was terrible. It was already late
enough, and a wild night,
and the road full of fallen
branches and stones.

But little by little,
as you left their voices behind,
the stars began to burn
through the sheets of clouds,
and there was a new voice,
which you slowly
recognized as your own,
that kept you company
as you strode deeper and deeper
into the world,
determined to do
the only thing you could do – – – determined to save
the only life you could save.
