A Blessing for my Niece

Sacha is the mother of our godson
 Sacha is starting a new job after the Christmas holidays.  This, from John O'Donahue's To Bless The Space Between Us,  if for her:

May your new work excite your heart,
Kindle in your mind a creativity
To journey beyond the old limits
Of all that has become wearisome.

May this work challenge you toward 
New frontiers that will emerge
As you begin to approach them,
Calling forth from you the full force 
And depth of your undiscovered gifts.

May the work fit the rhythms of your soul,
Enabling you to draw from the invisible
New ideas and a vision that will inspire.

May this new work be worthy
Of the energy of your heart
And the light of your thought.

May your work assume
A proper space in your life:
Instead of owning or using you,
May it challenge and refine you,
Bringing you every day further
Into the wonder of your heart.
