Let Go, Jump In

April 10, 2012

“… what are you waiting for.. It’s alright…’cause there’s beauty in the breakdown”  – “Frou Frou”

There is absolutely beauty in the breakdown, if we can just let go of our guards and let go of fear. What is it that you are most afraid of? Out of fear, most people strangle-hold situations and other people in their lives. Living your life in a state of fear is akin to living your life in a safe, gray box. No risk, no gain – NO LIFE. Your life only gets better when you take chances and improve upon your circumstances. Staying still collects dust. Moving anywhere implies altering your connection to the universe and invites opportunities to grow.

Often times our fears get the best of us and we stay locked into positions that feel “safe” but not happy. We generally fear taking chances and getting out of our boxes… What if we lose? What if we are not as good as we think we are? What if we don’t think we have any talent at all? Who will be there to catch us if we fall? Who will be there to help us pick up the pieces?

Well, if the pieces of your life fall apart, it is a blessing. It means the paradigm you have created for yourself wasn’t working efficiently. Now you get the opportunity to put those pieces back together into an even better configuration the next time around. Many of us need to smash the structures we have confined ourselves to so we can learn to breathe life into our experiences again. There is beauty in the breakdown. Do not fear it. Let go, jump in and enjoy the experience of being free, and starting something new. You can never lose by moving forward in life (in any direction) but you will always stay stuck sitting still.

When You Walk With Your Head Down

… you walk into walls. It’s common sense. When you’re not looking where you’re going, you’re most likely going to end up somewhere you don’t want to be. Most of us sleepwalk our way through our lives — running the mouse wheel of life. We are so busy trying to make a living that we […]

It’s Not About Making The Right Choice

… it’s about accepting the choice you’ve already made. Our life’s path is made up of choices and there are no mistakes when it comes to making choices, because there are no right or wrong choices, there are only different choices. Don’t get caught up in the choice you’ve made – make it and move on. […]

Looking Back to the Past

… is only helpful to the extent it allows you to move forward into your future.  If it doesn’t, it keeps you back. Your life is only ever in front of you, never behind you. The past can be an informative tool if we don’t get trapped in it. If you want to uncover the […]

A Mid-life Crisis

… requires a mid-course correction. A mid-life crisis can happen at any age, but the wisdom here is that the secret to healing it, is in the way we define it. Life naturally has its ups and downs, and life is constantly asking you to define who you are in relationship to it. You’re never […]

When You’re in the Flow

… everything moves with you. And when you are not, nothing works. When you are in the flow of your life – flowing downstream — everything flows along side you. When you are out of that flow – pushing upstream — things are much more difficult. How do you know the difference? Ask yourself how […]
