Like where it is for all of us, on my way back to who we are.
Spending time with my HS friends over the weekend and perhaps we will make some plans for more cherished times.
So grateful for these friendships I have had since I was in 7th grade!!!
I feel a sense of possibility right now in terms of my true desires and dreams. There has been this new sense of understanding in my life that I am able to achieve the life of my dreams. What I see when I close my eyes, the space I choose to create when I meditate, the activities that I imagine myself doing, the people I’ll meet, the way it feels….. It feels so close. So I am trusting that there is a possibility that the hopes and dreams that God has put into my heart, I’ll have the good favor of being able to experience very soon.
At one point in my life my career was my entire focus. It nearly broke me (honestly, it did break me). That break led to the journey I have been on for the last four or five years, putting myself first and trying to cultivate well being. It’s becoming important that I focus on my career again. But this time I think I can balance it all, and continue to thrive. I’m starting to get excited about it. This is an opportunity, not a requirement. It won’t always be easy but I think there’s a real possibility to turn this into a new and rewarding chapter of my life.
My work is expanding in wonderful ways that challenge and inspire me to grow as a manager and leader. What was a tiny team just a little over a year ago has doubled and will double again in the next few months, which is just amazing. We’ve been gifted with funding, responsibility, and opportunity to do genuinely life-changing and world-changing work. The people we’re finding to join the team are all bringing amazing qualities and I know they’re drawn by our strong sense of mission, purpose, and the many possibilities we open and explore.
I find possibility in acceptance—in non-resistance. When I can say to my self, “What is IS” or “The secret is there is no secret,” it brings me into the present moment. In the present moment, I have choices. How I feel about possibilities is highly dependent on my perspective. I can see the cup half full or half empty. I remember hearing Br. David give a talk many years ago in which he stated that gratefulness is not a thought or feeling, it is a state of being that opens the door to opportunity. I remind myself that I always have the opportunity to grow if I am willing to let life flow. This quote says it well: “Human beings are not born once and for all on the day their mothers give birth to them, but . . . life obliges them over and over again to give birth to themselves.” My willingness to give birth to myself is where I feel possibility right now. I think that’s the true meaning of the teachings on the “virgin birth.” Life challenges us to be willing to be reborn over and over. It is truly a virgin/independent birth and sometimes the labor pains make us weep.
Love this quotation so I had to look up the source: Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Love in the Time of Cholera.
Thanks for filling in the author info, Barb…I thought I had remembered to credit her when I posted my answer to the question but it’s obvious I did not.
As I put one foot in front of the other,
I will see what unfolds along the way.
I’m not really feeling all that optimistic
right now. Just focusing on my practices
and trying to stay attentive to the present
moment and any possibilities will have to
reveal themselves in due time.
Charlie T Just remain willing!
All areas. I would like to be open and not fearful of change.
My husband and I are traveling right now- this moring making our last leg of the journey to Ct. I will embrace the possibility of being with family and enjoying the time…not being sensitive to having my feelings hurt, not being judgemental of how others live. The possibility of me being a better person- being aware and mindful of all that I say and do. Thank you for this question…it made me think!
Work. My husband and I have been super stressed and working too many hours, but we’re changing things up soon that’ll help us find more balance.
That I will spend today, this day that I have awakened to, with awareness, acceptance, love, kindness and gratitude. I am not guaranteed tomorrow or for that matter this afternoon so I will embrace the present with all my senses and be open to the possibilities that unfold.
Thank you, Joseph! Indeed words to live by….Thank you
There are several things in my life that I think about that are possible for me to do, but that doesn’t mean that I should do them. I’m talking about projects and activities that I wish that I could do, but due to the condition that I now live with it’s likely that I either won’t be able to complete them, or, end up injured and in more pain. To be honest, its frustrating.
Oh, Kevin…so true…I undertook such a project last week and have paid dearly. What Is can be frustrating!
Family relationships……amist the chaos and drama I sense the possibility of true love shining through.
Being mindful enough to slow down. I once read, the speed of love is walking pace. I don’t need hurry here anymore.
This helps me tremendously as I begin my day, Don. Thank you.
My work – I should begin working remotely within a month. I’m very much looking forward to it.
