Relax, Become Curious and Let the Possibilities Percolate

We received a typical heavy, wet, Colorado spring snowstorm last night. The wild grasses that stood 8 to 32 feet tall in my yard are now drooping on the ground in big clumps. While this may result in some of the fronds breaking because they just aren’t flexible enough to bend without cracking under the added weight, most will spring back into the air and stand tall once the snow melts.

A great metaphor for life. When we feel weighed down by circumstances, the key to survival and transcendence may be to stop struggling, become still, rest, reflect and relax into our current situation. In the case of the grasses, as the snow melts it provides the precious water to nurture new life. And so it can be with our greatest challenges. Seeming adversity is often the much-needed catalyst for growth and transformation.

I am so grateful for your presence in my life and opportunity to partner on our respective journeys. The curiosity and courage you demonstrate daily inspires me to continue embracing everything in my life as an opportunity—a precious gift just waiting to be unwrapped. Knowing you helps me adjust my lens on life to see more clearly that any perceived minefields are actually untapped goldmines.

The value you add to every life you touch and every situation you encounter is immeasurable. You are a unique and precious natural resource never to be taken for granted by yourself or anyone else.

I am celebrating “you” today with joy and a grateful heart! I hope you will do the same. And so it is. Namaste. Amen. Blessed be.

PS: It’s a good thing I took these pictures when I got up at 8am. Because, at an elevation of 6000 feet above sea level, once the sun shines for a few hours, all evidence of a Colorado spring snow will be gone. By noon, the ground was nearly bone dry with only a few small patches of snow here and there. Coloradans encourage each other by saying, “Don’t like the weather? Wait 15 minutes, it will change.” Wise counsel overall. Don’t like your current circumstances? Relax, get curious and let the possibilities percolate. Everything’s an opportunity to make a change for the better.

About djwlifecoach

As a retired board-certified coach, author and Reiki master teacher, I continue to share hope, possibilities and empowerment with the world. What's love got to do with minimizing stress and getting unstuck? Everything! My book, "Choose Your Energy: Change Your Life!" (Hay House/Balboa Press 2013) shares my story and the stories of 10 of my clients along with my signature Discovery Framework. During my 30 years as an organization transformation consultant, I served as a senior partner in four of the world's largest, most prestigious global professional services firms. In 2005, I took a five-year sabbatical to find healing and peace because non-stop work had taken its toll. My recovery from burnout, including a sustained 80-pound weight loss and freedom from 10 years of debilitating depression, led to finding my purpose sharing hope, possibilities and empowerment with the world. Through healing and self-exploration, I discovered that loving yourself unconditionally is the key to transforming your personal life, your work and the world. With attention and intention, I learned to live in alignment with love through a wealth of energy-shifting tools and techniques that help me reduce stress, anxiety and overwhelm by releasing limiting beliefs, emotions and habits. My books, blog and radio episodes help individuals and organizations harness the transformative energy of love to turn unexplored possibilities into fulfilling realities and step into their greatness.
