“The next message you need is always right where you are.”
– Ram Dass
Long story short:
I was driving upstate NY in a blinding rainstorm;
normal traffic, only an hour and 20 minutes from
ALL OF A SUDDEN:
the car started fishtailing, swerving, sliding and careening
out of control. I had no brakes- and was trying to steer into
ended up on the embankment before I could
steer it back toward the road again
and came to a stop in the MIDDLE of the highway.
I realized I had to get out of the way
as cars were tlying past trying to avoid us
and ended up on the left shoulder
inches from the median strip..
Did I mention it was pouring rain?
All during this time, all I could think about
was "WTF is happening?"
I have a good car, (a Subaru) and just had her serviced.
Then it came to me that I hydroplaned and completely lost control.
It's something that happens, it's scary and
I'm grateful that we are OK.
Now, days later; I'm dealing with the aftermath of
insurance, not being close to home, rental cars, etc.
But, I keep coming back to:
I AM OK
And, I'm sure challenged with practicing all of the tools I TEACH!
Clearly the Universe has something in store for me-
and this is a part of a larger plan.
Although I don't know what that it,
I'm going to focus on the only thing I can control
and that is
ME (and my energy)
What is the lesson?
For me, I think my lesson is that part of being human is that life
ebbs and flows.
Its' not WHAT happens to us, it's how we react to it...
It's okay to cry, be frustrated, yell at the person on the other line after the third time they've repeated their script, to fight for what you think it's right.
It's okay to have these human emotions; just don't dwell in them.
Coming into acceptance has helped me especially in this situation.
But, let me be clear-
ACCEPTANCE IS NOT about Giving UP-
It's simply about allowing it to be what it is in this moment-
THEN taking steps to change what we can.
Oh, there's so much more I could write on this-
but for now:
I leave you with this:
🔥 Where do I need to practice acceptance in my life?"🔥
I can assure you that the answer to that question will seed
your next step(s.)
I LOVE helping people walk with Power, Peace and Purpose
Have a great week! I'm Celebrating YOU,
with so much love,
PS: Feeling wonky and need additional support?
It's important to believe in yourself and shine your light again.
If you've been playing it small and safe (and I understand these past few years haven't been easy for many); now is the time to get BACK ON TRACK, reclaim your power and live to the true reason you were put on this earth.
