Musical Accompaniment (of course):

I am teaching a 40 Days to Personal Revolution workshop and we have reached the stage where we get to outline the statement I am. This is a pretty heady affirmative moment in the revolutionary process as, for many of the participants, it is the first time that a tangible shift in orientation to self is witnessed and owned.

Even though I have been a part of this program many times, I always find this declarative opportunity really quite inspiring and personally amazing. You see, I am a person who announces with the greatest ease and assurance to inanimate objects, like the dashboard of my car. In those confessional moments I am wise and witty, way beyond expectation, and I am able to rhapsodize on the most complex subjects with an ease that know no bounds.

People, however, have always been a bit of a different story. How do I say cool things about myself out loud without feeling exposed, vulnerable and more than a little bit silly. I don’t; I feel all of those things, and boldly state who I am anyway. Quite simply because my own truth is important to me and I have made a commitment to myself to live Big.  I’m developing a strong heart muscle that urges me forward; I feel the fear and I do it anyway:

Here’s what I said: “I am a good, decent and kind person. I am fun, sexy, alive, loyal and smart. I am able to laugh out loud about myself and do, often. I am a good crier, dedicated to a hell of a lot of personal growth. I am responsible; transformed. I am sometimes silly. I am getting more and more confident every day. I am able (finally) to say no when necessary. I am open to extreme loving possibilities. I am peaceful.”


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
