DAY 70: LEANING HEAVILY ON SOMEONE ELSE’S MOJO.

I’ve been feeling off all week. And it’s been driving me a little crazy, thus leaving me even less able to steer myself back on track than ever. I’ve deviated toward low energy thinking, kind of staying stuck in my head which seems to be on some kind of perpetual loopy negative track. I guess it can happen sometimes and instead of trying to force myself out of it, I’ve kind of just hung in there, hunkered down and taken really good care of myself and let the thoughts and experiences come as they will, unbidden and often times sharp.

There’s some really beautiful moments that reveal themselves in these kind of funks and I had one of them tonight when I went out on a sweet date with my youngest son G. We started at Raoul’s Empanadas in Morristown, our favorite place to go together, and scarfed down some of Motown’s finest deep fried treats, ice cold soda on the side. It was a particularly fabulous experience as we were there on the same night that all of the craziness from Morristown’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade celebration was teetering toward a rather infamous drunken frenzy. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=baDd3za5YLQ : A little bit like a bad frat party. But 14 year old G was my intrepid knight in shining armor, retrieving as many creamy sauces for the empanadas as we needed. He found the whole thing hilarious and as usual, I began to be buoyed up by his fun funkiness and his innate ability to stay in the moment.

Magic happens when I lean on someone else’s good mojo for awhile, plug in to positive energy, get charged up, see things from G’s really funny and insightful perspective. At Kathleen Perlett’s awesome photography exhibit, the final phase of our date, G made two hilarious videos, reminders, especially to me, to not take myself so seriously, trust in the love, and believe in the grace of the universe that has always given me way way more than I need.

About livebig365

Join me as I dive in to the deep end of the pool and challenge myself to live big and love big. What does that mean? In 2012 , I accepted the invitation to push myself beyond my comfort zone, at least once a day, and engaged and responded to my life, or a given situation in my life, in a way that would normally scare the hell out of me. Why did I do it it? Because it was time time to begin, and I was ready! Each day brought a new revelation, lesson, challenge, encounter, a teaching moment, that revealed to me that living big and loving big are uniquely interconnected. Welcome 2013, the year of lovebig 365. Each post was an expression of love experienced, witnessed, inspired, manifested. It didn't always make sense in the moment, and yet its sheer mystery hopefully evoked a beautiful affirmation of life and all of its shimmery brightness; broken up, lovely to behold, tender and full of purpose. 2014, jagged, bumpy, disjointed posts. 2015, silence, and plenty of growth within that silence. Manifesting 2016: The creation of a gathering place for gratitude. Join in the wavering, audacious, unequivocal fun. 2017: Reflection 2018: POWER, MAGIC, TRANSFORMATION
