My Weekly Wow


I Give Up

The minute I choose to give something up for Lent I want that thing more than ever. It can turn into a self-defeating dynamic that has little to do with the true purpose of Lent.

The idea of Lent is to renew and strengthen our spiritual life, growing closer to God. It is a time of conversion – leaving behind old ways and embracing a new way of being.

As I ponder this, I am left with both a question and the answer.

Wow . . .

“What needs to change?”

That’s my weekly wow. Look for yours this week.

With Your Permission

Typically when I first sit down to write an article or work on a project I find myself getting distracted and putting my attention elsewhere. I may do some laundry, make some popcorn or work on a different project. I have come to realize that this is just part of my process.

Recently, I tried a slightly different tactic. Instead of just recognizing this as part of my process, I consciously gave myself permission to do it this way. In doing so, something shifted.

The angst went away and I trusted the process even more. I felt lighter, more energized and totally in alignment with what I had chosen to do.

Wow . . .

“Allow the process to flow on purpose.”

That’s my weekly wow. Look for yours this week.

I wish you well,

 

 

 

I am working on a book that will contain a collection of “Wow Moments”. In addition, there will be follow up questions for the reader to ponder.

An example here, would be:
Where in your life do you need to give yourself permission to live more on purpose?

Stretch Yourself

After quite a hiatus, I attended a yoga class this weekend. Upon entering the room I could hear my body thanking me and I was so grateful to be there.

This is something I enjoy. It is good for me. And yet, when I get out of my routine, it is something I stop doing.

I am reminded that, at times, we will experience breaks in our momentum of doing what is good for us. It’s about taking a breath, relaxing in to it, not comparing ourselves to others and gently working our way back to what we know to be good.

Wow . . .

“The good in me, honors the good in you.”

That’s my weekly wow. Look for yours this week.

I wish you well,
