Suggetions: How to Live From The Inside Out

Suggetions: How to Live From The Inside Out

 

  • Time spent in nature every day.
  • The ability to connect the dots with each phase of a daily journey:
    the name you thought of, the phone call that came in, the person
    who invited you to a meeting, the book that fell off the shelf.
  • The belief that other people’s opinions of you are not that important—you are long past the teacher’s report card.
  • The ability to be so present in the moment that, for example, when
    you are sharing something with someone on the phone that maybe you ought to have kept to yourself and the call drops off, you realize that perhaps it was meant to be rather than a “coincidence.” Or your
    computer goes blank just at the moment you were going to send the email to someone even though you were hesitant about it in the first place.
  • The ability to celebrate delays rather than being angry and
    denying them.
  • The understanding that your exes are not the reason your life doesn’t work—they are your sacred friends who made the real you begin to work.
  • The realization that no one has ever been against you—even the most difficult people in your life shaped your path.
  • Clarity that people’s views of you have very little to do with you and more to do with themselves.
  • An embrace of what spirituality in the presence of your enemies truly means.
  • The understanding that the people who could not “get” you created the space for you in which you had to “get” yourself.
  • The realization that the world is not black and white, it’s both.
    It’s both/and meaning it’s black, it’s white, and it could be a different realization all together.

It does not seem fathomable to us…

A New Place of Deeper Living

A New Place of Deeper Living

As long as we believe the cross is rugged, we will never outgrow the splinters that come with it. We will never learn to go with the “natural grain” of life—a cross of empowerment rather than a cross of deep, wounded rejection and disconnection. Dolly Parton was once quoted as saying, “Get down off the…

To Wish Upon A Star Is Progress, To Know That You Are One Is Evolution

When this idea came to me, I was not referring to being a celebrity or improvisation management. I was referring to being a unique and unrepeatable creation of Spirit.  When I was a teenager, I loved the crescent moon and star and had posters, rings and necklaces. The symbols were on my state flag of…

Thriving Beyond Surviving

Thriving Beyond Surviving

Life was very confusing at such a young age that I attempted on some level to destroy my life by abusing alcohol or by longing to be me but being terrified to be so. I took my own life for granted for so long. I felt so out of place externally, never belonging, that I…
