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

I am retired from 40+ years of helping individuals and teams build lives and organizations they love. One of the great joys of my retirement from professional practice is having greater bandwidth to donate my professional and creative talents to support and promote animal and social welfare charities. 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 led to finding my purpose guiding others on their journeys. As a board-certified coach, author, consultant, radio host, Reiki Master and EFT/tapping practitioner, I share hope, possibilities and empowerment with the world. 111419 DJW Sid CH Pet Corner Photo ShootI help clients achieve rapid, extraordinary, sustainable results by connecting who they are with what they do, a connection often lost through stress and the sheer busy-ness of daily life. Courageous self-awareness and unconditional self-love lead to honest choices based on priorities that nurture you and those around you on a journey to wholeness. Decades in coaching, consulting, change management, organization development, human resources and mixed media artistic expression honed my business sense, professionalism, creativity, intuition, leadership and communication skills. The result? Practical tools that help you become more insightful, creative, committed, productive and fulfilled. Even the most dedicated and hard-working individuals can shift from frustration to a sense of futility when their values, passion, work, and lives become disconnected. One of the problems with not taking care of our health is that the effects of ignoring it are often slow to show up. We continue to juggle family responsibilities, work and finances until we lose ourselves, waking up one day 50 pounds heavier in body and soul—no good to ourselves or anyone else. I love working with people who are ready to take life-changing action to make their dreams a reality. At each moment, you have inside you all the wisdom you seek to choose your life and your way of showing up. Limiting thoughts, beliefs and feelings can block you from moving forward. An absence of love and concern for yourself can result in negative head talk that holds you back with discouraging messages about who you are and what you can do. By listening and caring deeply, I guide you in connecting with your own inner wisdom. We identify the way you’d like to live. We determine what’s blocking you and release you from the hold those blocks have over you—unleashing the positive energy that will fuel you forward. Together we develop a plan to move you closer to your heart’s desire. My books, blog, radio show and signature coaching programs help individuals and organizations harness the transformative energy of love to turn unexplored possibilities into fulfilling realities and step into their greatness. What’s love got to do with it? 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. For fun, I love reading, sewing, knitting, yin yoga, afternoon tea, opera and movies. I live in Williamsburg, Virginia with my spouse, Wilson Abney, and the cat who runs our life, Maisy Jane.
