Well, DANG! Here it is. This may be the first time in my life that I have successfully, with the exception of a couple days ago, did any new awesome thing for that long and that consistently. I feel my view of what I am capable of, and what I have to share, has shifted dramatically. AND icing on the cake, the event that sparked it all.. Kyle Cease’s Evolving Out Loud weekend, is back in LA this weekend! Feels full circle and also a major level up. Who knows what I will bring out of this weekend?? We shall see.
I just finished a blog I was VERY happy with. Why is it not here instead of this one? I failed to hit save throughout and for the first time my dang website logged me out before I got to the end, erasing the entire thing. Needless to say. I was, and still am, a bit annoyed. I guess it is times like these we get to practice what we preach. In hoop dance I am always extolling the virtues of mistakeless-ness and success being defined by picking the hoop back up when it falls, not that the hoop NEVER falls. Well, here goes.
I surrender the idea that the blog I wrote before was better than this one. I surrender the idea that I ought to just give up now. I surrender the idea that something was stolen from me. I surrender the idea that I missed out on a road and am now stuck on the wrong one. I surrender the idea that the world is out to get me. I surrender the idea that the best is behind me and I lack the power to succeed.
I embrace the knowing that every redirect points us closer to our highest good. I embrace the knowing that there is always more insight and ideas. I embrace the knowing that I am right where I need to be. I embrace the knowing that these words are far more important than the ones that were erased. I embrace the knowing that I can recapture, if not word for word, the spirit of the blog now swimming in the ethers. I embrace the knowing that I have NO freakin clue what the life ahead of me holds. I embrace the knowing that CAN keep going... I am strong enough and resilient enough.
I am going to attempt to re-write the previous blog. Wish me luck!
