I see so much positive in the people around me lately. I am not trying to say that I am the cause, I might just be more open to seeing it these days. I have this feeling that starting the conversation I have started within my circle of friends and in my seminars has gotten something rolling. All around me people seem to be starting new businesses, new jobs, “aha” moments abound. I am hearing new conversations about letting go of limiting beliefs and behaviors. How awesome is that?! I am a big believer that you hold magic inside and you are the only one who can decide to let it out. Go for it. Don’t hold yourself back for another minute.
What does that mean for you? Does that mean starting today you are walking up the stairs instead of taking the elevator, or counting to 10 (or 100) before you yell at the kids. For me it means not beating myself up for not finishing the To Do List. I started those darn lists so I wouldn’t forget about important things, or things I wanted to work on if I ever got the time. These days those lists rules my life with an iron fist. I realized in the last few days that I am truly doing this to myself. It is not that the piece of paper with some words I have scribbled on it has some superhuman power to run my life. Uh, No! That’s me. Today I am taking a stand. Not against lists, but against giving away my precious happiness to errands, chores, fix it’s and appointments. Nothing in my life is more important than my happiness and being present for my family.
Here is a quote from the journals I made for the seminars which seems to fit today:
Have patience with everything
unresolved in your heart and try to
love the questions themselves…
Don’t search for the answers, which
could not be given to you now,
because you would not be able to
live them. And the point is,
to live everything. Live the question now.
Perhaps then, someday far out in the future,
you will gradually,
without even noticing it,
live your way into the answer.
-Rainer Maria Rilke
I wish for you a day full of patience and happiness!
If you are interested in the upcoming seminar please contact me. I would love to have a few more ladies come down and join the fun!
