Turning pages . . .

Everything is moving . . . always!

We’re not in a static world.

It’s all fluid motion.

When we expect to be surprised, we deal with change and transformation better.

As much as we might struggle to keep things just as they are, we learn (over and over again) that we do NOT have control.

The problem is not that we are inadequate.

We are not victims because this is universal . . . It applies to all things and beings.

The “problem” is all those other people . . . Changes in the weather . . . Seismic shifts under foot . . . Local, regional, national and world Economic and political uncertainty . . .

So . . . what can we do about all this?

I believe it all boils down to what each one of us practices.

Our individual art is who we are and what we stand for, and we create it and shape it throughout our journey here on planet earth.

We adapt/adjust/respond/react to change as it happens sometimes more gracefully than others.

We’re turning pages as we do the best we can with what we have and whom we choose to invite into our lives.

The thing is . . . none of us humans are immune from this.

There’s no amount of wealth that can change it . . . just as gravity.

So . . . being intentional in everything we do is the best we can do in terms of stability and making a difference/dent in the world while we’re here.

Show up and be present

Know and follow your heart

Always tell the truth to yourself and others

When it’s over, Let it go!

Invite others and know that the right people will show up.

Be patient – It’ll start when creativity and Spirit move/flow.

Understand that whatever happens is the only that could have.

Practice peace!

Today’s Drive Time Video is LONG . . . and all about turning pages.
