Taking a step back, getting perspective, and taking a bigger view is an incredibly helpful thing to do. And surprisingly difficult sometimes.

I had the opportunity to change things up for a couple of days and what a world of difference that makes. I think that’s why I am in love with freedom right now. It’s such a gift to be able to do something different when you feel like it.

When I left Vermont I felt unsure about what my next steps would be, and I still do. But I told myself to pay attention to any auspicious signs to help me along my way. Today I unexpectedly got one. I’m still not clear about what I will do, but I have a better sense and continue to learn to value myself and ask for what I want instead of assuming I won’t get it. I do this in some aspects of my life more than others. What do we have to lose in this life by asking for what we want? And why is that so hard for some of us?

So I move forward with a fresh perspective, renewed appreciation for where I’m at in my life right now and darker shade of hair.

I got this one from a Facebook friend, pretty good Mr. Jung!

“Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.”
~ Carl Jung

    Generally, what we want doesn’t just drop from the skies into our lap with no effort or agency from us. I’m glad you’re learning to ask for what you want and not let fears of not getting it prevent you. I don’t usually have a problem asking for what I want but every now I then I feel scared to do it. So I think it’s something we all have to keep learning.

    Mmmm, thanks so much for your postings! You are loved and cheered on from LA. Did a program with Dan Hessey today and thought of you and all of the doubt you’ve worked through on your way to BG. You remain in my thoughts, in my practice. Marguerite
