Realigning priorities, shifting tacks

Yesterday I shared with you how distant I had come from a chief heart's desire: Simply to feel the earth under my feet. Grounding in that need, making a commitment to honor it, I opened to another neglected desire as well, writing routinely right here, on Building Ordinary.

The new web sites for Ordinary and Building Ordinary are far from completion. We've experienced one setback after another. Intent on working from the new framework, I've continuously sacrificed writing the story and tracking my journey toward making the vision real. No more. I am realigning my priorities.

While I'm still excited about building a new framework for the blogs, I will no longer pursue it at the expense of this work. From now on, the new sites take a lower priority so I can post here more regularly, and finish several posts in Rose's journal.

I may end up with a much less vigorous site than planned. It will take longer to achieve, but in the meantime, I will nourish my soul by honoring the work that means the most to me.

I know that some of you who read me regularly have faced setbacks and disappointments in meeting your goals as well this year. How, I wonder, might we be more supportive of one another in a way that would not create yet another distraction from our work?

Reading your words is exactly what I'm needing today. So you're already supporting just in your presence here. Thank you, my friend.
