To our old friends, familiar with our blogging spot, we thank you for being there and here; to our new friends, read on, you’ll soon understand!
When things change it can be exciting, but it can also feel a little scary. What’s out there? What’s beyond this? We are never assured of an answer even if we are excited about our new path and have carefully planned our route. Maturity is realizing that this uncertainty is okay and just a natural part of life. Taking a new road requires hope, faith, and trust.
But before we takeoff in a new direction, we want to honor our birthplace. We’ve been fortunate to have a home at the University of Minnesota and our stay has been splendid. We’ve been able to examine many aspects of self-discovery. We’ve been able to pose questions and propose strategies for achieving a greater measure of peace and contentment. We have shared books and other materials that touched our lives. We have enjoyed the journey and have grown along the way. We hope that you have, too.
Now, we’re moving forward. Happily, we have a new home base and will be reaching out to you monthly via this brand new website! We thank you for traveling with us since 2008 and we look forward to continuing the conversation here at our new site www.selfdiscoverydigest.com.
We invite you to enjoy past Self-Discovery Digest posts on the LearningLife site as you will still be able to access them there: http://blog.lib.umn.edu/learning/selfdiscovery/
The following are some thoughts that have crystallized for us over the past three years of blogging:
- Life is endlessly fascinating.
- People are generally good and are trying their best.
- Letting go can be liberating – some situations are beyond personal control.
- Power and fulfillment come from aligning who you are at your core with how you are in the world.
- Healing and progress are always possible.

Change is inevitable. Transformation is wonderful and yet anxiety provoking at the same time. Join us as we embrace this new direction. Partner with us as we grow and evolve – we wouldn’t want to blaze a new trail without you!
