A pocket full of sunshine!

We are having our usual summer stretch of blue skies, no rain, and loads of sun here in the Pacific Northwest right now.  Believe it or not, at times like this I am not really drawn out into that bright light.  For me, it is too hot and too bright.  It seems I have always stayed back and out of the spotlight in my life.  Those times I have consciously chosen to step out into the bright light have been significant times in my life.  However, most of the time I am content in my own quiet place.

As Natasha Bedingfield says:

There’s a place that I go,
That nobody knows.
Where the rivers flow,
And I call it home.

Whenever I have relocated in the past I have had feelings of apprehension.  “Am I doing the right thing?”  “Will I be happy at the new place?” ” Will the clients follow me, or find me, at this new place?”

Deep down it feels like my new office will allow me to have a space to call home when it comes to my time with clients.  I am excited to begin scheduling clients at this new space. Excited to spend time there, not only in the actual office and seeing clients, but on the grounds.

When I was considering the move and visited the location I almost immediately felt a draw to be there. Part of that pull was / is the view.  Having a view from my office seems to be important to me.  My previous office provided me with the gift of looking out the small single window and seeing Mt. Rainier on a clear day.

Two of the four walls of my new space are pretty much walls of windows. One set of windows highlights the trees and the lush green-ness that IS the Pacific Northwest.  The other “wall of windows” highlights the Salish Sea (Puget Sound) and the water side of life.  It feels right to be in a place that provides a sense of nourishment for my soul. I am wondering … Once I am all moved in and enjoying the visual benefits provided by the view, and receiving the gift of energy from the land, will I step out and be seen more?  Will my visibility change, a.k.a step into the spotlight of sorts?

This office will be different. Having the ability to go outside and be among the trees, by a creek fed by artesian wells and right by the Salish Sea … who could ask for more? Wood and Water in close proximity = heaven for me! (And let’s not forget the black tail deer I have been seeing right outside my office window.)

The sun is on my side.
Take me for a ride.
I smile up to the sky.
I know I’ll be all right.
