Well I am....at least I think I am. I've just gotten off the road, and oooh la la, am I glad to be home. I was in DC and NYC with some amazing people who inspired and invigorated me while we shifted energy and played with all kinds of healing. I think this is why I love teaching - I always come away having learned more than when I began :) One of the students sent me an email talking about our training with a phrase that just stuck with me -
"........I am thrilled for this unfolding."
What a beautiful way to look at a thought, or a task, or a day! With anticipation. With curiosity. With wonder. It feels open ended and bright, filled with possibility, just the way I want to live my life. Here's the piece that I remind myself about, the piece that is the most challenging for me to live (oh the perils of being human....) - when things are going smoothly, when there are challenges that I've handled successfully before, this is an easy mindset to keep in place. When new issues come up, things that seem scary, unfamiliar and overwhelming, I flump into my default perception -
".........I can't do this, it's too much , I'LL NEVER FIGURE THIS OUT!" What would happen with that small pivot - the slight shift in perspective - the idea that this issue too is "unfolding" and, in the midst of this "challenge", we'll get new information that will help us navigate through. That we can trust ourselves to go through the experience and get to the other side, if not unscathed, at least wiser and with a new set of "thought tools" and 3-D actions we can put to use so our lives can unfold in more positive and yummy ways........ Just sayin......
Swimming in the possibilities of it all ---
