Dancing in the Moment

Throughout your life, you will encounter what you perceive as opposition and obstruction.

You wanted to leave for your vacation early in the morning before traffic gets heavy, but when you awoke you realized you forgot to pay the bills that come due while you’re away. Or you wanted to arrive early to the office so you’ll have time to finish your slides for an important presentation that morning, only to get stuck behind a 10-car pileup on the freeway with no exit in site.

While life doesn’t always align with your plans, your response will have everything to do with whether you experience an insurmountable obstacle or a golden opportunity. You get to decide whether unexpected opposition will be a curse or a blessing in disguise.

It’s a lot like dancing with a partner. With no resistance, you’ll find yourself flailing like a wet noodle. However, with even a little structure and tension, you’ll perform creative twists and turns that will leave everyone amazed.


Like the kite that can only rise against the resistance of the wind, once you partner with your perceived opposition, you may just find yourself soaring to new heights you could never have reached from comfortable complacency.

As anyone who works out regularly can attest, opposition can help you develop strength, stamina, flexibility, stability and dexterity. Strength results from pushing or pulling against strong resistance. You gain strength—physically, mentally, emotionally or spiritually—when you encounter opposition and engage it.

Opposition is inevitable. Instead of collapsing into victimhood or raging against circumstances, transform your minefields into goldmines. Turn your face into the wind, embrace your challenges and discover the hidden riches that lie within you. Choose your energy and change your life!

How will YOU dance with opposition TODAY?

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.

I live in Williamsburg, Virginia with my husband, Wilson, and the coaching cats who manage my life—SiddhaLee and Maisy Jane.
