Today, I nudge you to explore what you’ve been given, where you’ve come from, and/or who you grew up with … finding a clue or two of what speaks to your purpose – your one-of-a-kind purpose-on-the-planet. 


BE Still. Surrender.

Yes, new things await.
New things are here.
But, for now, let them go.
For now, BE still.
Stay here,
for as many moments as you can spare.

From today’s Soulfully Ablaze reading:

Sometimes you can look to what has been given to you, what you didn’t choose, and find hints that will inform and express who you are, maybe even uncovering a bit more of what matters to you. My name is one of those things. Although I didn’t choose it, much of what I love and clues to my destiny are portrayed in mine: Sarah Jane Davison-Tracy[-Badi]. Each word offers a glimpse of my heartbeat and connections that pulse with purpose.

As a tribe and family,
we can grow one another:
new names,
and stories beckon.


Ponder. Go deeper.

What hints can you gather from the places you came from, from the people you have lived with—those who have loved you or those who have caused you pain? What clues can you glean from your name that speak to your purpose? What hints does your name give you as to what matters to you? Write a bit about how your name expresses who you are.


Engage. Commit.

Have a conversation with someone you trust today, someone who has known you for a long time, and ask them to share their insights about what they see as intrinsic aspects of you. Write down and ponder a bit what they share. What excites you? What intrigues you?

Given the state of our world – the Corona virus pandemic, school and work closures, challenges to global markets and personal paychecks – we must take a few moments to BE still and to pause. These days, more than ever, there has been much clamoring for our attention 24-7 with LOUD, FEAR-based, PANIC-inducing messages – but let’s practice peace, together, amidst these stormy days. I share these PoPs so you can FILL UP with peace and navigate this wild and crazy season with strength and courage.

You are loved.
You belong.
We belong to each other.
Let’s standTALL together and light up the world!

My love is with and for you, my friend. Have a most blessed and beautyFULL day!

xo, -Sarah DT ❤️
