DeBarge is singing about “the beat of the rhythm of the night,” and Lionel follows up about how we are going to “party, caramba, fiesta, forever.” I am singing along until I am doing my best dog howl because I am weeping silently.
My son does not wonder how I suddenly “forgot” the words because he is trying to sleep. I wipe away the tears and realize how much I have been suppressing. Did you ever have a moment when someone says something, and it hits you like the very voice of God?
I wish I could tell you that I have had an epiphany, ripped off the band-aid, did serious self-reflection, and stopped beating myself up, but while I am typing this to you, everything is getting pushed down for the next party music crying driving spree. I need to take my advice. What are the Nuggets of Wisdom I would give myself?
Considerations for the Present: I have a grand vision of providing ten million meals. There I wrote it down and said it out loud to the millions of people who read my blog. (See how I snuck and affirmation in there?)
Potential Challenges: When you play where no one else is playing, there is no instruction manual. That is why you must have the vision to guide you. I need to take a sword to my life areas that do not serve me.
What may help: The fact that I have more to learn does not mean that I do not know anything. I am a badass, and we keep growing!
What’s next?: If I am not failing daily, I am not doing it right. We resist change because we want to stay safe. Being a transformative and transcendent being does not happen by playing it safe.
What band-aid do you need to rip off? How will you say yes to yourself? Namaste
