Life is filled with crossroads, intersections, moments of choice. Which way to go? What to do next? Where to stop? Where to begin again?
For the next five days my choices have narrowed down to three very simple rules to follow: Love the people. Love the people. Love the people.
I am off to coach at Choices for the next five days. Off to be part of hearts breaking open to beat fearlessly, minds setting themselves free of the past, lives opening up to possibility.
Coaching at Choices is always a good reminder for me to get present, get conscious, get compassionate.
It is an opportunity to be mindful of my actions, thoughts and words so that I bring my willingness to serve and be present for another into each moment. As a coach, my role is to hold the space for each trainee to trust themselves enough to know, their answers are not ‘out there’, they are inside their hearts. Inside their own knowing of what works, and doesn’t work in their lives. As a coach, I don’t have someone else’s answers. I only have good questions. The answers are theirs.
It is one of the many things I love about being in the Choices room. We are all so unique, different, complex individuals, yet, singular in our humanity.
We think. We feel. We know things. We see things. We understand things.
We act. We speak. We do and say things we mean. We do and say things we regret.
We carry our hurts, bury our pain, avoid our fears.
We laugh, we cry, we weep, we dance for joy.
We do all these things and still, we struggle to find the path to living fearlessly in the now.
We look at the past, wishing it could be different, wishing we can have it back.
We look at the future, fearing it won’t be different, fearing it will be the same.
And in this moment right now, we all have the power to change our minds and hearts to feel and see and know differently what happened in the past, and what is possible in the future.
In this moment right now, we all have the capacity to love fearlessly, live wildly beyond our wildest imaginings.
Tomorrow, I will step into the seminar room for five days of living and loving fearlessly.
Tomorrow, I will step into a circle of people who believe to change the world, we must first begin with our own hearts. In that space, we create a world of possibility for everyone.
Today, I am grateful. Excited. At peace. I am present, willing to do my part to change the world one heart at a time by living my life fearlessly, lovingly and compassionately, breath by breath. I am willing to serve and give my best to this moment right now so that my ripple can flow out into the world around me, in Love.
I am off to coach at Choices for five days. See you next week.
