After the Storm

Every new day is another chance to change something in your life. Every new day is a chance to feel blessed for what you have.

Today I decided to stop standing on the sidelines of my life and to move forward with:

  • Creating Fall and Winter Workshops in Kent;
  • Creating a weekend retreat at a destination near Toronto;
  • Creating new on-line programs;
  • Creating energy healing services;
 

Today I’m feeling blessed because everything is happening right on time.

What would you like to change in your life?

What are you grateful for?

Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.

Early morning walking is one of my favorite summer activities. It gives me a moment to get out of my head, slow down and reconnect with myself. On these walks I usually ask a question and see how the universe responds. On this walk, I asked the question…

What is my next step?

And these are few of the answers I gathered.turkey-vultures

Use all of your resources combined with your past experience to approach the problem from a different angle.

The importance of fun and play.

I think it is time to take a break from the “go-go-go” energy of the summer and just have some fun!


Do you find yourself getting caught up in the “go-go-go” energy of summer?
What if you walked away from the weekend responsibilities and instead played this weekend?
What does “fun” look like to you?

I would love to hear about how your spent your weekend playing and having fun.

 

The Road to Audacity: Being Adventurous in Life and Work

ojeepr

GO.

Tell your story.

Do things you care about.

Make the difference you want to make.

BE AUDACIOUS!

~Author Unknown


I’ve been thinking of purchasing a Jeep Wrangler for 4 months now. Why? I have basically 3 illogical reasons:

It looks good dirty…so I can drive it on gravel and in muddy fields

It feels like adventure…so I can explore and discover

It has a compass tire cover…so I never forget to follow my heart

When the thought first popped into my head 4 months ago, I laughed at myself for the shear illogical reasoning behind it. And within minutes of laughing at myself I drove by a church sign that read:

It’s wasn’t raining when Noah built the Ark…

That sign made me think “hmmmmm”. On Wednesday, I unexpectedly discovered a business training seminar titled “The Road to Audacity” based on an actual book with the same title. The title fascinated me. How is someone trained in audacity (courage, boldness, fearlessness)? What does the road to audacity look like? Feel like?

I did some further research and discovered some very well known historic people that are examples of audacity:
  • Galileo insisting that the world is round and defying the Pope;
  • Einstein challenging Newtonian views of gravity that had prevailed for over two centuries to produce his General Theory of Relativity;
Early Thursday morning, after my usual latte stop, I continued on my drive to the office. As I waited at a stop light, I found myself questioning “How do you know if you are on the road to audacity?” And then I observed the vehicle in front of me. I smiled, laughed and thought…

What should my license plate say?

Have you ever followed your heart and did something that was totally illogical?

Were you met with resistance or acceptance?

Who stood by you and who walked away?

What were the results?

I would love to hear about your audacious stories.
