Being okay

At each stage of our lives, we change, grow, learn and life becomes new. At each stage we may find that we are not okay being ourselves.  As things change we can become uncomfortable.  Finding peace within changing times in our lives is about finding our “okayness” within our journey and the stage we are at.

happy-monday-13-ways-to-learn-and-growAs a child or maiden / youth we physically change in our bodies.  We become taller and stronger.  We go to school, learn new things and form the foundations of the whole of our lives.  This is a time where we are truly at peace and okay in our lives.  The younger we are the more okay we actually are.

silhouettes-of-parents-and-kidsAs we move into the mother or father stage of our lives, we change and grow again.  We find a mate and focus on becoming a family.   Our bodies may change to give birth to children.  We change roles from child to parent and put into action our beliefs about how children should be raised that are our own and some of our parents beliefs.  During this period in our lives we may be so busy focusing on others, that we may forget to find out whether we are okay or not.

If we have chosen to, we may have healed many things and are now more peaceful and okay with who we really are.  Leading to being comfortable in our own skin and wisdom.

stages-of-lifeWouldn’t it be wonderful if we could maintain our ‘okayness’ throughout our lives, but we are here to learn and grow so moving in and out of ‘okayness’ is part of learning and growing and a part of our journey.

Letting go

I have a couple of weeks before I head down south to visit my family and friends for 10 days.  It is time to visit as there are 2 new great nephews to be introduced to and also to see my Mum who is in full time care with the latter stages of Alzheimer’s.

Upon my return I could be heading overseas again.  I do like to plan so I asked the company I work for in the Middle East for the topics I might be presenting, so I could get organised before I went away on my holiday.

over-under_yale-wolf_nothing_2_u_1000Nothing – no response.

Now that is not unusual, they are busy.

What was unusual was how I reacted.

iStock-balloons-letting-goI let it go.

I decided there was nothing I could do, so I chose to not even think about it.

I also trusted that I will get it done in the two days I have when I return.  2 days is not a lot of time to develop 5 days of training.

So I went about organising my life.  Booked in a couple of drum making clients, a mentoring client, visit to the Doctors all in the last week before I go.

When you let something go and I mean really let it go, if it is meant to come, it will.  Last night I received the email giving me the 4 courses I may need to run.

I don’t have a lot of time but more than 2 days to get organised.

Do you really let go in your life?

Do you really let go of your thoughts as well when you let go?

When do you really commit?

Commitment is an interesting word.  When does your commitment to something really begin?

CommittmentDoes it begin when you purchase something?

Does it begin when you decide to do something?

Or does it begin by just setting your intention?

It actually begins when you start to value the thing you have committed to.

value-of-something-Money can place a value on something, be it $100 or $100,000, but does money really value something?

Do you value your opinion?

Do you value your choices?

We value our choices when it is right for the whole of us, our physical, emotional and spiritual selves.

commitmentWhen you truly commit to something is means it is right for the whole of you.

So think about true commitment the next time you want to purchase something or choose to do something, ask is it right for the whole of you?  If it is, then you will have true commitment to it.

Committed to living an authentic life.  Tracy xx
