DAY 195: SERENITY NOW!: DAY14, LIVEBIG365 LOVE IS SERIES…

My LIVEBIG365 Love Is Vlog series has not been working out the way that I planned. I imagined 30 perfectly lovely vlogs; each one different, distinct in their own individuality, accompanied by the kind of attention and accolade that would result in  even I being bowled over by my own genius. I am laughing as I write this post as I am always, initally, so startled by my own lack of humility. I have forgotten how thoroughly unteachable I can be at times, and how important it is for me to let go of my own ego and allow this experience to manifest fully and expansively in its own unique way.

Being humble, I have often learned the hard way, means being teachable; opening myself up to the flow of the universe and allowing the grace of that moment to express itself fully. And here’s the real kicker, without me, and my desire for a certain outcome, getting in the way of the flow and the process. This acceptance of a gracious, loving presence in my life is not an acquiesence to powerlessness but really an embrace of a certain kind of unschackling of the heart.

I have freedom in my humility as I am not bound up by false expectation, a stubborn desire to have things my own way; and most importantly, I am released from the fear of failure that comes with an oppressive my way or the highway attitude. I feel grateful as I write this, but I must confess, with regard to this vlog series, I came to this conclusion quite reluctantly.

These are the ways the best lessons in my life continue to be learned. So, my present moment remains full of possibility and teachable moments. And I will wait patiently and peacefully, eagerly anticipating the next inspiration, ever hopeful that it will lead me toward an even more serene and loving heart.

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
