Surviving a poke.

November 12, 2010

9 things out of 10 I usually can do really well.  Those successes put me over the moon (probably not a glam scene but I do a jig around the kitchen that leaves no doubt I am happy with an outcome).  I am as good at fixating on the one thing not exactly stellar.  I’ve had 52 (just) years to hone my single-mindedness.  Trust me – it is powerful stuff.

When one is spinning around from major life changes (and I no longer believe they come in series of 3 but rather groups of 3 weekly), there are many opportunities to convince yourself you are a total screw up.

It can be just as easy, or should be, to celebrate staying in the game, unafraid and open to what chance brings.  When my tender heart takes a poke I remind myself, “good to be feeling something!”

Don’t miss out on life!   It is meant to be shared.

    Very nice Tracey, enjoyed this installment… Yes life is meant to be shared!
    The possibility of a good outcome is worth the risk… A leap of faith now and then keeps us flexible.

    Thank you, Alan. There’s a quote I especially like about flexibility but do not know the author to credit: “Blessed are the flexible. They will never be bent out of shape!”
    I wish I could find a way for the perfectionist to be more gentle with the risk taker! The internal struggle is exhausting.
