Yesterday I had a shame attack. I woke up after a long night's sleep, recovering from leading a five-day retreat, and found a post on Facebook from an angry participant who called me rude and suggested that I was a fraud.
I'm learning to release any and all expectations.Expectations are troublemakers disguised as hopeful intentions.If you're looking to experience the magic of the season, you might want to let go of expectations, too.
I woke this morning to a wall of gray outside my bedroom window. The fog was so thick, I couldn't see a thing. Ugh, I thought, today is going to be cold and gray and depressing. Not the best thought to start the day with.
Sometimes I feel like such a loser. Okay, not the best affirmation, I know, but it’s the truth. Yesterday, while out running errands, I heard a story on NPR about a woman named Zora who, from the time she was five-years-old, had a recurring dream of becoming a superhero.
Last week, a good friend called to tell me that she lost her wallet. She was overwhelmed with the idea of having to replace her credit cards, debit card, license, etc., and the biggest stress of all was in not knowing exactly what she had lost. She hadn't kept a record of the contents of her wallet.
There's a little voice in my head that's been trying to get my attention for a long time. The voice tells me things like: stop following everyone else's rules and start expressing your creativity in unconventional ways
This summer I'm falling in love with life. After a very busy year in 2012, I'm enjoying being home more, giving time and attention to the things I say I value, and deepening my relationship with myself by exploring new ways of expressing my essence and creativity.
It's a beautiful morning and I've just plopped down in a comfy chair on the deck overlooking my backyard. I enjoy starting the day by listening to the birds as the early light slowly brightens the sky.
