As I sat at the beach this afternoon, soaking in the sun, the sounds of the waves and the wind, and reflecting upon this past weekend of learning one seagull became my friend. A whole flock of them came swirling around me for several minutes, looking to see if I had anything for them. They swooped close, called to each other to come check me out and watched me closely, waiting to see if I’d drop anything of interest.
But, this one special seagull stayed after all of the others flew away, In fact, not only did she stay, she also flew off 3 times returning to rest nearby, a little bit closer to me each time. For a short period of time she actually followed me up and down a stretch of beach as I looked for shells. She just quietly, slowly walked along within a few feet of me.
I can’t make this magic up! But I sure do revel in magical moments like these.
As I gloried in the amazing gift of connection with my new friend I began pondering about one of our learnings for my Global Freedom Summit, C-GOALS. C-Goals are those dreams; those ginormous , BIG LEAP DREAMS/GOALS that you REALLY want without knowing how to get them. Unlike A goals (achievable) and B goals (challenges), C-Goals can scare us and excite us to the same degree. They are those dreams and goals some of us only get glimpses because we get stuck in trying to figure out the how to such a degree we give up on them.
As my seagull friend and I connected with one another, the 1 or 2 C-GOALS of mine I’ve started to identify kept circling back around to my consciousness even as the other goals/dreams flew away. Just like my seagull friend! These are the C-Goals that I never really lose awareness of. They are what make my world and my journey experiences of magic activated. These dreams/goals are the ones that fuel me to keep moving forward even on my shadow days, because they just quietly and persistently keep circling back around to remind me they are there.
My heart is feeling filled by the magic of my seagull who chose me to connect to today, as well as my C-GOALS that I have chosen to connect myself to as a path towards a bigger, bolder life.
What a magical life I lead!
