This is one of those times when recovering really matters to me. As I come out the other side of an incredibly powerful Leadership Retreat I am quietly observing how I recover to my “other” life. The joy, exhilaration and absolute engagement that happens when my Wild Boar Tribe unites is enough to keep me unhinged for weeks. I am “lost” in the sheer awe of what we create together to deepen our learning and ignite our visions.

At least until it’s time for another load of laundry!

What I know for certain is that I don’t want the momentum to disappear in the wake of a long “to do” list. AND I especially don’t want to escape into possibilities while what is in front of me waits impatiently. So the trick is to recover. To recover with confidence, certainty, expectation, energy. To recover with intention; with balance. To join the doing and being so that one is not forgotten or avoided.

For those who only days ago sat at the water’s edge with me, smelling the fresh air, hearing the gulls cry, warmed by the morning sun … I am reminded of a favourite quote by Marianne Williamson. “Now is the time to show up fully for life, whatever the circumstances.” Indeed, now is the time to recover … to self, to life as it shows up now, to life imagined.
