Out of Tune

October 26, 2011

Sometimes life just needs a little bit of an adjustment.

Not everything always goes as planned. Life can be likened to a beautiful symphony – instruments need to be tuned up in order to play together in harmony. Some days our instruments are just off – some days are just bad days. But that is all they are – bad days. Without the bad, we wouldn’t appreciate the good. Finding the harmony in our symphony (the world around us) is about finding the balance in our own instrument (ourselves). Finding that balance will help the other instruments tune themselves to your notes and vice-versa. Beautiful music can only be made by looking at what is going on around you in your life and adjusting yourself accordingly. By tuning up your instrument, you are allowing yourself the opportunity to acknowledge what you are sounding like (how you are feeling) and you afford yourself the opportunity to bring yourself back into balance.

Everyone has bad days. Allowing those bad days to take over the quality of your life and your inner balance is just as bad as leaving your instrument un-tuned for periods of time. It just takes a subtle adjustment to hear the vibration of change. Look around you, notice how you are feeling everyday and don’t just ignore what is going on. You need to hear the other instruments in order to play in harmony with your world. We are part of the whole. When we give up on trying to find that balance, we are the ones who suffer. When we allow ourselves to fall out of tune for long periods of time, we fail to give ourselves the chance to hear the sound of our own beautiful music. It is a form of self-sabotage. Wake up – find the beauty in the sound of your own happiness everyday. Never miss an opportunity to tune-up your bad day. Staying in tune will keep you performing beautifully in the symphony of life.

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 […]
