Nothing Big Required...You are enough!

December 3, 2010
You are enough the way you are. It isn't everyone's path to do something big for the world, all is important.

Most of us have the feeling that we are here to accomplish something big in our lives, and if we haven't done something that fits the bill we may feel as if we are waiting. We may feel incomplete, or empty, as if our lives don't yet make sense to us, because they don't line up with our idea of major accomplishment. In some cases, this may be because we really are meant to do something that we haven’t yet done. But in most cases, we can let ourselves off the hook with the realization that just being here, being ourselves, is enough.

As we live our lives in this world, we share our energy and our spirit with the people around us in numerous ways. Our influence touches their lives and, through them, touches the lives of many more people. When we strive to live our lives to the fullest and to become our true selves, we are doing something big on an inner level, and that is more than enough to make sense of our being here on this planet at this time. There is no need to hold ourselves to an old idea in the back of our minds that we need to make headlines or single-handedly save the world in order to validate our existence.

We can each look within our hearts to discover what is true for us, what gives our lives meaning, and what excites us. We can release ourselves from any pressure to perform that comes from outside of our inner sense of purpose. Staying in tune with our own values and living our lives in tune with our own vision is all we need in order to fulfill our time here. Our lives are a process of becoming so that we cannot help but cocreate; being who we are, responding to each moment as it comes, we can trust that this is enough.


Planning your Breakfalls

November 24, 2010

For the last year, I've sat as the devoted mother to a son learning martial arts. We live too far from the do chang for me to drive home during the hour of his class so I stayed during the winter to watch or study. On nicer days in the spring and summer I took my mp3 player for a walk around the closest park.

I have learned several very interesting life lessons during the time I watched.  The most significant is the break falls. They learn to fall in such a way as to not hurt themselves. Rolli...

Levels of Truth Telling

November 18, 2010
from Neale Donald Walsch's Little Book of Life, p 50-51

"When I talk about transparency in relationships, I often think of telling the truth, which is what transparency really is all about. And I've been made aware that there are really five levels of truth telling.

The first level of truth telling is when you tell the truth to yourself about yourself. That was an enormous challenge for me, because I had been lying to myself for many, many years. It's hard to think of a person literally lying t...

Verbal & Emotional Abuse - How to Recognize It

November 8, 2010
Our society is filled with verbal and emotional abuse, from radio and TV commentators and presidential candidates, to parents, educators, employers and managers. As Patricia Evans states in "The Verbally Abusive Relationship", the old adage, "Sticks and stones can break my bones but words will never hurt me," is not at all true. Just as physical abuse is wounding to the body, verbal abuse is deeply wounding to the soul.
If you grew up in a verbally and/or emotionally abusive family, you might...
