We are one!

This is quite a significant post for me - not only is it my 50th, a milestone I am proud to have reached, it is also Seeker & Sage's birthday!

I love birthdays, and not just for the cake and presents! They give us the chance to acknowledge where we are on our journey. We can pause, look back and see how far we've come, look around and appreciate all that we have created, and look forward to our hopes and dreams being realised.

One year ago today, on the 21st of April 2014, after months of deliberation and uncertainty I took the leap and wrote my first post for this blog. And I've never been the same since.

I know that sounds dramatic, but it's true. 

Seeker & Sage has shown me how much I love to write, how much I yearn to create and how much I want to share. And the learnings... sigh - it's been huge! Week after week the seeker would do what she does best - search for answers and understanding as a way of dealing with life's difficulties, always looking for the lesson so that I could grow in some way.

And I have grown. But it's more about expansion than progress. As I sit here this morning, pondering this, my 50th post, I know that that's what matters most. Yes, there's been a lot of lessons on letting go this past year, but I think the biggest lesson by far, the one that undoes a lifetime of striving for perfection, is that growth is about expansion - it's about becoming more of who we are.

Speaking of, I have been working on a new blog site, one that reflects this expansion and the growth that will continue as life unfolds.  So not only is this my first birthday, it's my last post at this address! I am very excited to announce that from today, we live at seekerandsage.com

I hope you find this new home an enjoyable place to dwell. My weekly post-writing will continue (sorry for the gap between these last posts. I've been busy focusing on the new site - thanks Step and the team at Green Graphics - I love it! ) but you will also find quotes and books and information about Note to Self, the card set I published in 2009. It's early days, but my aim is for the blog space to evolve as I do.

And remember, if you want an email to deliver the posts as I publish them, then please submit your details to the Follow Via Email box on the right-hand-side of the blog. 

It's been an absolute pleasure sharing with you so far. I think what keeps me going is that we are one - beyond our unique circumstances and personalities we share the experience of being human. 
And every time I sit down to write a post I am reminded that we are all in this together. 

And that makes all the difference.

Thank you all for your patience, support and encouragement - and for just being there. With love, G.
