This summer marks a significant milestone for both Chris and I.

10 years ago we went on a camping trip to Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. It’s a beautiful spot on the Lake Superior shoreline . . . and a spot that activated a new pathway in our lives.

At the time it was an amazing trip, it felt like something magical happened, but I’m pretty sure neither of us would have anticipated the ways that trip would shift the direction of our lives.

I think each of us have such moments and experiences where suddenly we know ourselves differently or perhaps we see life differently.

Sometimes we immediately recognize the shifts or changes they make in our lives. Other times it may take a decade to recognize the full ripple 😉

The ripple from that trip has been profound. This summer I have found myself being called to reflect upon many experiences from that summer. A lot happened. Life changed direction. It created space for possibilities I had not yet imagined.

Small steps = Big leaps.

I made small changes that year. I see now how those small changes created space for some pretty cool big things.

Milestones and Soul Anniversaries are important to honor and celebrate.

Chris and I have been doing this a lot this summer. It’s been fun, magical, and soul nourishing.

In today’s episode of the Meet Me in Sacred Space Podcast I dive deeper into this conversation sharing more about milestones, how to recognize and track them, as well as how to celebrate and honor them.

Wishing you a joy-filled week!

with love, Lori A Andrus
