“A messy start is simply a messy start, not a failure.”
Monday 6 June 2016
Have been leaning into the lessons found in working with a little mess. I’ve been learning new things and activating projects. Some days it gets a little chaotic.
It’s amazing how easily I can turn on myself instead of being kind to myself. I’ve been examining the expectations that I set and the language that I use when I’m approaching a threshold and/or feeling uncomfortable with lack of mastery. The truth is, I would never talk to a friend the way that I talk to my self some days. I’m learning to open up these spaces for more grace.
Thresholds and emotions give us valuable data about the beliefs and behaviors that are calling for attention. The places in our lives that we need to courageously examine.
May you receive treasured information as you find the end of yourself. May you be filled with gracious space in the turn around time. May you celebrate the threshold. Rumi says it beautifully:
I must have been incredibly simple or drunk or insaneto sneak into my own house and steal money,to climb over the fence and take my own vegetables.But no more. I’ve gotten free of that ignorant fistthat was pinching and twisting my secret self.The universe and the light of the stars come through me.I am the crescent moon put upover the gate to the festival.~ Rumi
BE in your life,
