Thanks for popping in!
Day 5 of the 6-Day marathon retreat today – and I have to tell you, I feel as fresh as a daisy ! I really, really do.
Let me tell you what I have done to feel so refreshed and happy, when one would think I should be absolutely cream-crackered after 4 days of full on workshops, with two more to go and a QVC pilot in Germany next week…
First thing: a really good, long sleep. Went to bed at 9pm and slept for 9 hours.
Second thing: listened to Sadhgurufor half an hour, an Indian guy I often turn to for spiritual guidance .
Third thing: warm shower and a chat to myself under the cascade.
Relaxed, happy, refreshed – and ready to welcome our new guests this morning.
I am sure it is a combination of all of the above which has put me in this delightful place today. But let me tell you what Sadhguru said, because I think that is what released the current turmoil in my head. You see, I have been full of fear around the imminent Germany TV Trip next week, worrying whether I would fumble and fall, if you know what I mean. Anyway, not wanting to dwell on that again, let me explain…
Sadhguru was asked, “What is your greatest weakness?”
“Danger” he replied. Then he went on to elucidate that only when he walked the line of danger (as opposed to staying in a safe place) did he stretch himself, did he test his abilities and learn. And when asked what he enjoyed doing most, he replied that he had trained himself to enjoy absolutely everything he did.
So I took those nuggets with me in the shower and thought about them in the context of my own life. My conclusion is this:
Going to Germany on QVC is stretching me, not intimidating me. And once I embrace it in a positive light, then I can actually look forward to it and enjoy the learning experience. At the end of the day, I have to do it, I have made a contract, so I should enjoy it.
Does that make sense to you? It does to me. Now I just have to hold that positive thought. And if need be go back to Sadhguru, and listen again, for reinforcement and encouragement. Look him up. He is truly inspirational.
Got to go – and enjoy an arty day with a group of lovely ladies. Now THAT won’t be hard!!!
Love & Hugs,
