What's Your Story?

I am cleaning some things up around here, so please be patient while I fill my bucket with a fresh pail o' water. There are some AMAZING things happening around these parts, I've just not had ample time to write them down.

In the meantime...I leave you with a thought...that came from my yoga teacher training, and showed up on another trainee's blog serendipitously: WHAT STORY ARE YOU STUCK IN TODAY?

Here's a hint: the correct answer is NOT:
why I'm not stuck in ANY story.

Because that would be dishonest and a bunch of baloney.
Get quiet. Be honest.

We all carry junk, we all need cleaned out from time to time. We ALL could use a good checking in with ourselves and lose at least one (or eighty) of our stories.

You know, the one about how so-and-so hates your guts from such-and-such that happened so long ago that blah, blah, blah? Or how he/she wronged me by whatever and however and therefore the world is flat and the sky is falling (chicken little) and I
NEEEEEED to tell you all the ways and reasons for which and how I've been wronged?

Yeah, that one. Lose it. Just get rid of it. All the drama. All the feelings. "The Story."
The Past.
Make them all go away. They are, after all, passed.

Now, what's left?

Absolutely nothing. Beautiful nothing.

Can you even tell the story if you lose "the story?" Probably not.

Because all that lingers there is space.
Space....and sweet possibility.

And to that can I have an Amen? Amen.
