I am really liking the freshly-minted ME in this milestone year of mine…what a ride! Not sure what shifted and how but having entered a new decade made me truly appreciate how rich my life has been, and how everything…everything up to this point has led me so nicely to where I am now.
And how fortunate am I?
The way I am feeling right now…anything’s possible! Have learnt so much from other like-minded souls recently at a festival filled with people who want to change the world by living true to their calling. Awesome? Yes, and so empowering.
I am reminded that the life that I am envisioning and can feel, touch and see is now right on the other side of my fears and the limits I had set for myself. So, the fears and limits have to go! Right now, this is my decision…A year from now, I will be living a wonderful, barely unrecognisable life and you are gonna say, “Is that really you?”.
Wisdom for the Week from an old Chinese fable:
“There is an old farmer in a poor country village who is considered well-off because he owns a horse. One day the horse runs away. The neighbours sympathise, saying how terrible this is, but the farmer simply replies, “Maybe”. A few days later, the horse returns, bringing with it some wild horses. The neighbours rejoice, but the farmer simply says, “Maybe”. The next day, the farmer’s son tries to ride one of the wild horses, but is thrown back and breaks his leg. When the neighbours come to offer their sympathies, again the farmer just says, “Maybe”. The following week, military officials come to the village to draft young men to serve in the army but the farmer’s son is rejected because of his broken leg. The neighbours congratulate the farmer, saying how lucky he was to not lose his son, but he simply replies, “Maybe”.
Take events and moments as they come…Acknowledge and feel them but we really don’t know how the stories will unfold, do we?
It matters not if this truth scares or excites me, I feel it ultimately frees me.
