You are here. Ok, no lottery winners, but that doesn't mean you can't win in terms of your LIFE!
So, we are back at the beginning of a new day. Time to stop the thinking, take a deep breath, watch the video - then decide: who will you be today?
I hope you enjoyed a bit of our New Mexico history! The hairy microphone holder made its way into all too many shots - so the learning curve continues!
I have decided it is kinda fun, this learning as we go process.
How many times have you put life on hold because you wanted to do a perfect job? Me too.
This time, I've chucked all my self-protection from public humiliation out the window and am putting most of it all out there.
There are things I just will never share....
A girl has to have SOME mystery to her!
NOTE TO SELF:
Freedom may be another word for nothing left to lose, but it is also something we can never let go of!
There are still so many pieces to what I want to do with you here still left undone. I hope you will grasp the bigger goal as together we move forward.
In a world that is upside down what is free and always available is often the least desirable.
But your life? I can't think of anything MORE valuable. I believe in that and in you.
So I keep showing up.
I hope you will too.
Take this moment to choose: Do you WANT to live, I mean LIVE?
Then, who do you want to be. Now spend the next 24 hours doing just that by being it.
Until tomorrow we will see you in 24,
We are here!
Ok, down to business. Running late tonight so I am sorry if I miss my deadline for those living on the other side of the world!
But, here we are as we start with the video! I think it works best if you just relax and plan on watching instead of watching for when you plan on stopping watching.
I have noticed there is a difference:)
I don't know if this letter theme is working for you or not, but I do like it as an idea. I get SO bored by slow, meditation type videos or audio recordings.
I want to reach you, not preach or worse, put you to sleep.
But the decision to just watch it unhooks something and it is that 'something' that is the goal to let go of.
The 'no more pushing' for right now feeling. The video itself gives your brain the time to refocus on something neutral - there is nothing to decide, just observe.
Then, after the video, is the moment when the greatest chance for change occurs. It is the moment you are most empty of everything that has been distracting you.
But you need to grab that moment because as soon as you think about your 'to do' list, the phone rings, the message beep, beeps - it will be gone.
And most likely, the entire day with it.
You KNOW that is how it works!
So to recap: just breathe, let go, watch, don't think, then.... pause and decide what you want to think about.
Do you want to LIVE, I mean really live?
Who do you want to be TODAY?
Two very important questions waiting on you to answer.
After all, it is your life, make it count!
See you in 24,
Are you here? I am. I promise, this is my last complaining post - at least for a while.
Tuesday was basically survival mode.
I am fascinated with how much struggle life is at times, from what is happening within to what is happening without. That's why I don't think there is much difference between suicidal vs. survival.
Maybe what we are focused on.... something to think about. But first, here is the best I could do under our circumstance! Again, showing up is enough. Perfection is not the goal - as you will soon see!
Awesome page holder though! You can't control it and this is what landed - I like it!
Truthfully, I don't know what you will focus on today or who you want to be more of. But I will say I have come a long way in my ongoing fight with the elements of nature.
Until you live practically outside, you have NO idea how good those of you in a real house have it.
I still can feel the fear - will the trailer tip, will there be damage, will I go crazy?
But that will pass.
The positive is I don't fight it like I used to. The anger and the frustration for the most part have given way to patience with a lot of practice.
Like the monks of old who sat in a cave with a single drip of water on hitting their forehead. Plunk. Plunk. Plunk.
It is all the same thing. Not letting what you don't want win.
If you can hold a neutral place, I consider that a wild success!
Tomorrow is always a new day and with it a brand new start!
So, for this moment - take a deep breath. Pause. Clear out the old. Settle in.
Now, this is your moment - we've cleared the way. It is all you. This moment, this day - it is all you!
See you in 24,
We are here! It is a new day and also a full one!
We've got a video, a podcast, and a little bit more all here to give you a moment to stop, take a breath, and decide - who do you want to be today?
Plus, a bit of a tribute to Johnny Cash who didn't quit, even when it was really, really bad. I hope you won't either.
The podcast for the day - I hope you'll download and go for a walk. So good for you to get outside!!!
Something went wrong!
This site is run by a human, not an APP. It's hard showing up every day, but that is what it takes. I am so glad you are here! Jill
