Such a powerful question that can totally reframe any situation from a default reaction to an inspired intention.
And the more entrenched the reaction, the more intense the claiming of power.
Who do I want to be when a drawing isn’t “working” — the one who starts again and asks am I having fun, am I learning something, am I honoring the gift of this interaction.
Who do I want to be when I get cut off by someone going 20 mph slower than I want to go?
I want to be the one who says thank you to the driver for giving me the opportunity to choose a bigger loving presence.
Who do I want to be when all my old habits of thinking scream unworthiness and capitulation?
I want to be the one who stands empowered in the shitstorm and holds my ground for a bigger life.
Who do I want to be when I’m tired and cranky and want to be a vegetable in front of the tv?
I want to be the one who remembers that fun is right there behind those thoughts, and chooses to watch and have fun, or get up and have fun doing something else.
Who do you want to be in the face of your challenges and disappointments?
