A Year That Answers



Happy 2016 from the iWonder Sisters! One of my favorite wild women is author Zora Neale Hurston who once wrote, “there are years that ask questions and there are years that answer”. I am certain we all feel as if the years that ask questions never truly ends. And in my opinion I believe that to be true. We are always asking questions. Life is a big question mark, and some of the answers take us in different directions than we would expect. But there are years where answers prevail, and I feel that 2016 is that year for me, and for us.

As I was writing this post, Andie and I were chatting over the daily lunch and dinner making of our fur babies’ food about how we have both felt as though we were in for a high speed life change. The seeds we have been sowing for the last two years are ready to burst into bloom and we must be as prepared as we can be, for all that we have asked for. This is a year of answers, ripe answers. This is a year to tie up any loose ends, so we don’t trip over them on the ride of change and expansion. We have already made decisions this Fall to let go of anything that we were doing that did not fit in with our true desires. If you have a choice, never spend time and energy on that which you are not truly passionate about.

It is only through our passions that we can clearly hear the answers guiding us further into the bliss that is our life’s design. The answers that lead us into more expansive joy, the joy and peace that passes all understanding. This pending harvest reaping can feel like trepidation, unexplained anxiousness, and even what can appear to be a lack of motivation. But it is so deeply important to honor the need for rest, isolation, the act of simpy being, not doing.

As planted seeds get ready to bloom, there is nothing more a farmer can do for that seed but get themselves ready for the reaping. And I feel that is where we are now, as a family, a kinship, a purpose, and a business.

Are you entering a year filled wih answers, or a year filled with marvelous questions? Whichever year it may be for you, honor it as much as you can. Do what you need to do for yourself and don’t allow anyone else’s agenda to become a pothole in the road you are traveling.

Join us on this blog next Tuesday, January 12th for a follow-up to this article on ways to ease the sense of fear and trepidation that comes with big life changes. See ya next week!
