“When I come back to who I am, why I am here,
and truly honor my courage and heart’s calling,
I know that all is well in the much greater sense.”
– Jennifer Hough
I thought that I was actually pretty good with moving through change, but the other night I realized that maybe I’m not as good at change as I thought. Big and new ideas are coming forward; my heart’s calling is LOUD.
The following morning, yet another big change happened, and I found myself both looking forward and transmuting the energy of the “shoulda, coulda, wouldas” at the same time. When that happens, I need space for it all to process so that I don’t force myself out of the unfamiliarity too fast. I mean, it’s the one constant, so wanting things to stand still is a surefire way to go backward, given that life is always expanding forward. I just know that everything right now is speeding up. Incongruent processes, relationships and projects are being rewired, or let go at a pace greater than ever before.
Do you have a personal operating system that allows you to flow through it all, and experience results that feel expansive?
I am constantly upgrading the way I plug into change, and even that is another constant change. LOL! I didn’t realize how important that was until recently. Especially right now in our history. Sometimes things need to break apart to come back together.
The tree gets shaken.
I, for one, don’t particularly love that experience (or at least my personality doesn’t), and I also know that it’s all happening for me and for all concerned. Ya, I get to learn stuff. Ya, I am not perfect. Ya, I get to have grace when I blame myself, or wish I had done things better… blah, blah, blah. It still sucks sometimes. Then at some point, it doesn’t suck anymore, and I get to experience the world that opens up because of the change.
A while back, I remember a project taking a serious left turn, but the results were so incredible, I was humbled. Somebody stepped up and just gave of their creative energy. I had to just receive and say “thank you.” Most importantly, that’s when I really, really, really started to fall in love with the unknown. I think that is the key ingredient for me in thriving forward: Having a love affair with the glorious unknown.
I just feel like every aspect of life is up for an upgrade lately, don’t you? It’s certainly happening for me personally, and in my business. It feels like my life is just a microcosm of the greater macrocosm of the world right now.
When I come back to who I am, why I am here, and truly honor my courage and heart’s calling, I know that all is well in the much greater sense.
