Each day for the last few weeks I have been reading a blessing from John O’Donoghue’s ‘Benedictus’- a magical and mystical collection of writings, intended as invocations to the spirit and calling to the best within each of us. I find them both comforting and motivating, offering insight and new ways of approaching change and transition. For the last few mornings I have come back to these words; they are speaking worlds to me right now:
‘May my mind come alive today
To the invisible geography
That invites me to new frontiers,
To break the dead shell of yesterdays,
To risk being disturbed and changed.
May I have the courage today
To live the life that I would love,
To postpone my dream no longer,
But do at last, what I came here for
And waste my heart on fear no more.
