Off the high dive I go. First time trying a column. So a little patience please!
Just about the time you feel comfortable , the universe checks in and decides its time for a little head slap. Boom, I got one. Needless to say, I am on a roller coaster, just remembering to enjoy the ride. After the inital sting of the slpa, things have begun to fall into place and it is with this that I am afforded a new opportunity for growth. My takeaway from this it that change can be welcomed and not feared.
I am fairly active since I work on a horse farm , do equine massage and practice yoga. Add in some miles on the treadmill and a little weight work. I think all this is designed to keep me out of trouble and in focus. My mind is like a minefield that invites me to play inside. If I keep focused , I can stay alive. Anyway I can a bonus in keeping fit cause I want to see my grandson, Wyatt celebrate a number of birthdays.
Second bonus of the slap is I am finally practicing the art of self compassion. I am only able to be there for other people if I am there for myself first and foremost. Not in a selfish way, but in a caring way. Too musch of my life has been doing for others at the expense of myself. I described myself with these traits as compassionate, sense of humor, dependable, team player, dedicated and so on. The kicker is that I considered these traits as “ordinary”. When I really should look at them as extraordinary. I am finally learning tko accept compliments I recieve with a simple thank you rather than looking down at the ground and saying aw shucks.
Having a full heart means so much to me. I see it as the greatest gift the universe can bestow on me. For that I am grateful. I am able to be in a gourgeous landscape, wotk with fabulous people, witness wonderful sunrises, be with horses and nature. Such a deal!
Thank you universe for waking me from a spiritual slumber by making me aware of daily miracles. I am reminded of these daily and I am embracing the chance to establish spaciousness in my thinking and being. Yes, my heart is full! Thanks for stopping in because its been a pleasure. See you next time.
