Every noble work is bound to face problems and obstacles. It is important to check your goal and motivation thoroughly. One should be very truthful, honest, and reasonable. One’s actions should be good for others, and for oneself as well. Once a positive goal is chosen, you should decide to pursue it all the way to the end. Even if it is not realized, at least there will be no regret.
~His Holiness the Dalai Lama~
Days 15, 14, 13, and 12
And we are down to the last 12 days. I am almost ready to heave a huge sigh of relief. I did not quit, I stayed the course. I learned a LOT. I met some amazing people, heard some amazing music, found a new path and know beyond a doubt that I can do an amazing amount of good coming at it “from behind the scenes” and knowing the satisfaction of a job well done without needing the credit. Just knowing that someone believed in me as much as I do and gave me a shot at it….
There are so many Act as If quotes out there, I could literally spend a page pasting them all. So I will just leave it with this, I am ACTING as if this is a done deal and moving on, Acting as if the next phase were already here and I was on it. Being Grateful stays top of the list…and the truth is …even on my most bummed days, which is when I let FEAR (False Expectations Appearing Real) happen and listen to it….that while I know that the book based on “STAGES” would have been a dream book, this new opportunity that I am working at crafting literally has me spilling ideas, one right after the other. I have a notebook that has pages of notes, ideas…all waiting for that GO…and that is how I know, beyond the shadow of a doubt…that all the roads led here in the last couple of years…that this week I am going to work at the whole “walking the coal” idea (mentally) and the mantra is to “burn away that which is no longer needed, release all the old patterns and belief’s” and make room for what is coming-…Me in all my unique, imperfect, passionate, messy, warrior queen glory…
There truly is not more to be said that the Dalai did not say in his quote above….
Until the next time
