    We are bringing to light what we yearn for. No matter what our age, we are alive in this moment. We still have this one wild and precious life. If the practical part of your mind is raising objections, ask it to stop for now. Let the heart resonate with the quote. Breathe life into this one wild and precious life with your attention and your heart. One WILD and PRECIOUS Life Last year I knew what my word would be, blogged about it, and definitely tried to live it all year long. This year, I had not even given a thought about my word and as my friend coerced me to share it over coffee that day, a word popped into my head and I blurted out: “my word for is SLEEP!”. In my life, I finally have a sense of my own power and I want to use it fully, and to mentor and support others to do the same. I hold close to me words of the poet, Mary Oliver, “what will you do with your one wild and precious life?” as a constant question for my waking life and my work.   But maybe our one wild and precious life isn’t asking us to know or do. Perhaps, instead, it’s asking us to step aside from all the conscious knowing and striving that we humans are so good at, to take the time to drop down into the parts of us that are deeper and wiser.
